Te Waonui Forest Retreat – Hibernation

Following New Zealand national border restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, traditional seasonal closures and the hotel’s high profile of international guests, our Te Waonui Forest Retreat will be placed into hibernation, reopening in September 2021. We will continue to monitor and review as restrictions are lifted and look to providing travellers exceptional experiences again.

Alternative accommodation is available in Franz Josef Glacier at four star rated Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier.
If you have specific accommodation requirements or further questions, please contact our reservations team on 0800 69 69 63 or email reservations@scenichotelgroup.co.nz

Kia kaha everyone. Stay strong, stay kind and stay kiwi.

Te Waonui Forest Retreat

Te Waonui Forest Retreat offers an exclusive luxury hotel experience on New Zealand's beautiful West Coast. Located in Franz Josef Glacier, our luxurious ecodesigned Te Waonui Forest Retreat provides outstanding experience that is close to nature but far from ordinary.

Fern

Nestled amongst native rainforest in the untamed West Coast of New Zealand, the Te Waonui Forest Retreat is the ideal place to reconnect with nature and the dramatic surroundings. 

A 5 star retreat, we have designed Te Waonui to offer an unparalleled example of sustainable accommodation. Our four wings join together to enclose an area of native rainforest that was carefully preserved during construction, and is so dense that guests can’t see the opposite wing, ensuring a sense of privacy. 

Our specially personalised 24 hour reception area & concierge service and array of in-room features and facilities give our guests choice and a feeling of total relaxation, while the aptly named Canopy Restaurant serving 5 course dégustation and a la carte options ensure that the dining experience will be one to remember.

A truly innovative retreat, Te Waonui Forest Retreat raises the bar for unique luxury accommodation in New Zealand.

Location

Te Waonui is the only luxury property of its kind in the area. The retreat is nestled in the lush bush with views of the natural environment at almost every turn. Located in Franz Josef Glacier, the retreat offers easy access to the many natural wonders of the South West World Heritage Area. Mountains, glaciers, rivers, lakes, coastline, and native flora and fauna all lie in wait at the doorstep for visitors to admire and explore.

Te Waonui Forest Retreat welcomes you to experience this spectacular place with us. Come, take a deep breath, and simply unwind in this remarkable setting.

The West Coast of NZ is a wild and beautiful place, but can receive up to 3 metres of rain a year! During heavy periods of rain, State Highway 6 occasionally experiences washouts and slips. Before you start your journey, check the Transit NZ website for the latest road information.
