Providing one of the most tranquil places to stay in Taranaki
A quick 10-kilometre drive into New Plymouth, Okurukuru is situated on Taranaki’s spectacular coastline, overlooking Paratutu rock and the Sugarloaf Islands on one side with a clear sight of our majestic Mount Taranaki on the other.
Our Chalets include two luxury suites and six modern studio apartments with our newly designed disable unit. Built by Chris Bell Construction and opened in June 2020, the chalets are nestled into the hill above the coast, surrounded by vines and farmland. Each chalet has a balcony to watch the waves roll in with the complementary bottle of Okurukuru wine waiting at check-in. The chalets boast all the mod cons such as Wi-Fi and smart Tvs, they have been carefully designed to maximise the stunning setting; there are even sea views from the huge showers. It's a 10 minute walk through the vineyards and bush to a beautiful, secluded beach.
Okurukuru Manager, Rae Davey - "The chalets are ideal for locals who want a relaxing night or two away from home without the hassels of travelling - a "staycation" if you will. They are also popular with overseas and Kiwi holiday makers as well as for business retreats".
Our luxury suites include a master bedroom with a super king bed (can be split into two king singles), and an en-suite with a double shower. Upstairs contains the kitchen, additional bathroom and a spacious open plan lounge. For extra guests there is a double sofa bed in the lounge, which also has its own shower room adjacent.
Shared between two unique self-contained dwellings, the six chalet studio Chalets are situated in the heart of our lower vineyard. Chalet 3 has been designed with the disabled guest in mind with lowered benches and wheelchair access to and around the room.
Our petite size studio’s feature all of the modern comforts with a kitchenette, en-suite, Smart TVs, a private balcony outside your room and plenty of parking space. Our studio apartments have been designed to comfortably accommodate two adults, an extra single fold out bed may also be added for a third guest (please see photos below) or we have a port-a-cot which we are able to put into your chalet.
The bedroom features a king double bed that can be split into two king singles. Our studio Chalets are the perfect destination for a getaway with your partner, family, a group of friends, or business associates.
