The essence of luxury accommodation begins before you step foot on any property, making you feel special from the first point of contact till you say your goodbyes.
A couple’s honeymoon is a chance to reflect on what, in most cases, has been a whirlwind year of engagement excitement and wedding planning. An opportunity to step back from your reality and day-to-day routine, to reflect upon your special connection and to embark on your next chapter – with your life partner. Grand Mercure Puka Park Resort is the ideal spot to indulge in romance and relaxation.
A tranquil space perfect for your New Zealand honeymoon (or wedding for that matter, they can cater for up to 120 guests), Puka Park is nestled among 25 acres of bush at Mount Pauanui on the Coromandel Peninsula. While the property itself is undoubtedly a treat to the eye, there’s so much more on offer here, which is why we happily recommend them to you.
Upon first contact with Puka Park about your honeymoon accommodation you will receive warm, friendly service. Being a small, intimate resort they pride themselves on being flexible and able to work with guests individually to meet their requirements.
The chalets at Puka Park are nestled among generous and beautiful New Zealand bush making each room feel secluded from the next, like you are in your very own tree house with an ensuite bathroom and a large private balcony.
Pauanui is famous for its beach – three kilometres of sand and surf just a few minutes walk from the resort. There’s a range of activities to do in the area, including scenic bush walks to the peak of Mount Pauanui, boat trips to Cathedral Cove, wine tasting at Mercury Bay Estate or relaxing at Whitianga’s Lost Springs. However if you don’t fancy leaving the resort (and we wouldn’t blame you) there’s plenty of facilities on site – such as a pool, spa, sauna, gym and massage service.
Dine in grand luxury at Miha Restaurant. Choose between an intimate lounge setting or alfresco dining on the large outdoor deck with the Pacific Ocean as your backdrop. Feast on Pacific rim flavours with a modern European twist and fresh local Coromandel Peninsula produce, and enjoy a bottle of wine from Miha’s comprehensive wine list.
Take a Vow
Puka Park Resort is the ultimate wedding venue, combining all the romance of the native bush with the charm of Coromandel’s best beaches. With 48 chalets they can cater for up to 120 guests, and offer both resort and beach ceremonies followed by pre-dinner cocktails at the bar or on the deck. Wedding receptions are generally held in the main ballroom, the Puka Room, which features a ceiling lined with native New Zealand timber and is a great space to personalise as you wish.
