1 night stay but it was worth it. Such a great combination, a welcoming place with a breath taking view! The accomodation is at the level of the best 5 stars hotels in the country, with a personalized and warm welcome. We just loved it! We hope the best for the owners with to this life changing project . Being welcomed as we were by the two owners made a huge difference in our stay. Don’t think twice and book right away this lodge. Also, the journey to go there is also incredible, driving on the coast with a beautiful scenery.

Dec 2018Short but amazing! Thank you!
Staying at Atea Lodge was an absolute delight. As promised, the views are truely outstanding. The accomodation is luxurious, wonderful attention to detail. However, it is the generosity & kindness of the hosts that made us as guests feel so special. They were genuinely interested in us as people. So sad to leave. Wishing Lynn and Kelvin every success.
