The Ocean View Retreat, formerly Punakaiki Resort, is tucked into the northern end of Punakaiki beach, just 50 meters from the high tide mark, and 300 meters south of the famous Pancake Rocks and Blowholes. Few places in the world can offer such comfort so close to the wild action. The Retreat has been carefully designed to blend into its natural setting and capture the essence of its beauty. A fan shaped lounge overlooks a natural wetland and from the dining room you can watch the changing moods of the untamed Tasman Sea, for hours until the sun sinks into the horizon. Designed in harmony with the local environment, our rooms are cleverly staggered for the best view, while maintaining privacy from one another. Elevated walkways wind over luxuriant plantings to access many rooms. Our staff maintain the West Coasts traditions of friendliness and hospitality. With their knowledge of local walks, beaches and activities, they will help you enjoy the wonderful environment that begins a few meters beyond the front door.
