This is a slice of pure New Zealand paradise, located on the waterfront overlooking the blissful Hokianga Harbour. More than just a pretty spot, the hotel owners are descendants of the first Polynesians to arrive at this very place nearly 1000 years ago, making this the oldest settlement in Aotearoa. You’re just a short walk from the beach, when was the last time you walked barefoot in the sand?

What we love about the Copthorne Hokianga - It’s so quiet and out of the way, our friends Shane and his family really look after us and dinner overlooking the harbour is a great way to get our journey started.
