The suites

Nestled in the dunes each guest suite has a private entrance and has been designed with luxury, comfort, and privacy in mind.

Luxurious furnishings and a touch of beachside chic feature throughout. The feather duvets, fine linen and heavenly baths for two create the perfect sanctuary for rest and rejuvenation after a day exploring the Kapiti Coast!

Each of the four guest suites offer a super king bed, luxurious ensuite, spacious lounge area and private outdoor patio. A flat screen TV, DVD player with iPod connection, WIFI internet access, coffee and tea making facilities, mini snack bar, fridge, security safe, iron and ironing board and beach towels are also provided along with bathrobes, hairdryer and complimentary toiletries.

Outdoor patios are decked out with loungers, squabs and huge beach cushions. A great spot to catch the sea breeze and watch the sun turn pink, then red and finally orange as it sets behind Kapiti Island.

The combination of louvers and an overhead fan provide that much needed breeze in summer and for those chilly winter months there is under floor heating.

Tariff includes full breakfast.

Suite descriptions


Harakeke was the name given to this plant by Maori although the first European traders called it flax Though we still call it flax today, Harakeke is really a lily. It is unique to New Zealand and is our oldest plant species.

This is our honeymoon suite which looks out towards the Tasman Sea and Kapiti Island. A private edible garden courtyard tucked away in the dunes that catches the suns first rays and provides that much needed shade later in the day is another added feature of this suite. View more>


A beautiful rush with dark bands along the stem which give the stem a zig zag appearance. Oioi is Maori for “to shake gently” which refers to the gently swaying stems of the rushes in the wind.

This suite also looks out towards the Tasman Sea and Kapiti Island. As with Harakeke, guests can choose to sit in the private outdoor patio or garden courtyard, depending on the time of the day. View more>


The beautiful flower stem of the toe toe. The traditional use of the toe toe was to line inner walls, roofs and partitions of huts. The hollow culms were used for hunting arrows, straws and pipes, spears in games and frames for kites.

This suite has views of Kapiti Island and is immersed in the dunes. Nothing could be more soothing than being lulled asleep by the sound of the sea. View more>


Spiky seed heads of spinifex grass, powered by wind, roll along the beach once autumn nears. This joyful game goes on to until the ball gets trapped to restart the cycle of growth!

This twin suite with views of Kapiti Island is immersed in the dunes and offers two super king single beds. Nothing can be more soothing than being lulled asleep by the sound of the sea. It is the closest suite to the main Lodge. View more>

"After visiting family in Wellington we thoroughly needed and enjoyed the relaxation and all too brief stay at Atahuri.

It was amazing how Atahuri transforms from beautiful day to the serene night setting, we were blessed with a beautiful clear starry night, we just don't see nights like that in Hong Kong.

The welcome drink and mussel fritters in the spa to see in the night is a great touch. Our room was so well appointed we didn't get to use all the great amenities provided. Breakfast was simply sensational after our beach walk.

We will be back for more for sure for sure."
