The main lodge and seven individually appointed guest cabins have evolved from what was once a rustic fishing camp into one of the world's finest sporting lodges.
Guests usually meet for meals in the main lodge, and afterwards relax in comfort by the fire. All our guest cabins have high bandwidth internet access through our reliable wireless network.
Poronui Lodge is the spiritual centre of Poronui. It is here, pre-dawn, that hunters and guides gather in anticipation of the challenges ahead and trophies to be won. After the morning hunt, the lodge hosts a hearty brunch for returning hunters, who can then choose to relax here with a good book or coffee in front of the open ﬁre. In the evening, guests gather here again to share stories over a dinner of outstanding local game expertly prepared in the lodge kitchen, and enjoy the genuine hospitality of Poronui staff.
Situated on an imperious plateau overlooking the Taharua River, this magnificent residence has been graced by corporate leaders, celebrities and royalty. If you’re seeking five-star accommodation in an utterly unique location, with whisper-quiet seclusion and fine food and wine, search no more.
Your ultimate hunting retreat - and Poronui’s crowning glory - is Blake House.
The Safari Camp
An exciting addition to the Poronui experience are the stylish timber and canvas tents of this safari-style camp. Situated on the bank of the Mohaka River, the camp is available on a fully-serviced basis for luxury camp-outs and provides an incredible opportunity to enjoy splendid back country isolation whilst not forgoing creature comforts like crisp cotton sheets, hot running water, flushing toilets and fine food and wine!
This modern sports and relaxation centre has gym and health club facilities - including steam, sauna and massage treatment rooms. Also located in this complex is a cigar room and a full-sized antique English billiard table. The Stables houses the outdoor barbeque area and underground wine cellar – both used regularly as dining venues.
Come and experience the legend and the magic of hunting in New Zealand at Poronui for yourself.
