The Pacific Rendezvous Resort is a destination in itself, with its well-spaced, self-contained motel units giving plenty of privacy but, at the same time, with plenty of community oriented activities, including the swimming-pool and two spa pools, one of which is private. There is also a well-maintained and newly renovated games room and up-to-date children’s play area, and plenty of areas set up with barbeques with firewood pre-cut and ready for the guests. Each motel unit is fully self-contained and there is something for everyone, from couples and groups or friends, to large family units, all well fitted out with modern conveniences.

Pacific Rendezvous Resort is New Zealand’s most spectacularly situated beach motel, located at Tutukaka, 25 minutes from Whangarei and just over an hour from the Auckland CBD. The Tutukaka Coast was recently voted ‘the second most beautiful coast on earth’ by the National Geographic magazine and is the perfect destination for a weekend away. The Pacific Rendezvous Resort complex consists of a 10.5 hectare peninsular with access to two sandy beaches, and is surrounded by park-like grounds and spectacular views of either the Tutukaka Harbour or the Pacific Ocean, stretching out to the world-famous Poor Knights Islands. This is an ideal playground for a family holiday and there really is something for everyone.

As the Pacific Rendezvous Resort is such a short distance from Auckland city, its location makes for the perfect weekend getaway or holiday destination, with the minimum of driving necessary. Additionally, Tutukaka is a great place to base the family for taking excursions further north and it is possible to visit the Bay of Islands or the Kauri forests on the West Coast in a comfortable day’s drive.

Tutukaka Coast beaches are among the most spectacular in New Zealand and, of course, The Poor Knights Islands are an internationally recognised icon, up for World Heritage Status and only 23km off the Tutukaka Coast, where people can experience some of the best diving in the world. The Tutukaka Coast is still Northland’s best kept secret and staying at the friendly and welcoming Pacific Rendezvous Resort can only everything this part of the world is famous for.

Now is probably a good time to be thinking of booking the family in for a winter break as there are lots of walking groups who like to go there at that time. The Tutukaka Coast has a number of coastal walkways and special places, including walks for strollers, walkers, hikers and even for those confined to wheelchairs. The Resort has also attracted several car clubs who have been going there for several years, so to make a booking, go to .
