Nelson Tasman Region

Te Koi is located on the Bronte Peninsula in the Nelson/Tasman Region

Nestled between some of New Zealand best National Parks and surrounded by charming townships, it is easy to see why the region is a popular destination for international visitors and kiwi holidaymakers. Whether you are ready to dive straight into some adventure or you prefer a slower-paced escape, there are activities on offer for everyone.

Lovers of the outdoors are spoilt for choice, with tramping, swimming, kayaking, fishing and canyoning right at our doorstep. Hire a bike and take in the sights (and tastes) of our region by cycling the ‘Locals and Landscapes’ tour. If more extreme cycling appeals, have a helicopter drop you at the top of a mountain for a thrilling downhill mountain biking experience.

Those happy to wander through townships at their own pace will feel right at home, with many boutique shops and galleries ready to be explored. Art enthusiasts can take part in a guided art tour, perusing some of the region’s best and most unique works of art and meeting their talented creators.

Our region’s fine food and wine can be sampled at every turn. 

Visit an award-winning winery or pick up some local artisan goods and enjoy a beautiful picnic by the ocean. Famous worldwide for its wines, the wider region is home to many vineyards. Explore these at your leisure or be guided by a passionate local wine enthusiast and meet the winemakers on an enlightening and indulgent tour.

Day trip possibilities are endless while staying at Te Koi. Take a drive out to Rabbit Island, board the ferry and explore the quaint coastal village of Mapua, or cruise the Abel Tasman and experience its unique history, ecology and wildlife—staying overnight if you wish. Helicopter tours can take you in any direction—over to the West Coast, east towards Marlborough or South to visit the spectacular filming locations from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Ask our friendly reception staff our personal recommendations based on your preferences, and we are happy to make any bookings on your behalf.
