Wake to the call of Bellbird & Tui, stroll up Maungatautari Mountain and spot native orchids amongst towering Râtâ & Rimu, with Hihi, Tieke, Kôkako and other native wildlife who call this sanctuary home. As to breakfast, deciding what to cook in the full commercial kitchen requires consideration. Meals may be as elaborate as you like or just pick some herbs for a cup of tea or some organic vegetables from the garden.
In summer, eat outside on the lavender encircled patio, fly a kite on the lawn with the family or enjoy the Pukeatua community tennis courts & pool across the road. Indulge in your favourite watersports at Lake Arapuni & Karâpiro or jump on your bike and cycle alongside them on the Waikato River Trail. In winter there are fireplaces, comfortable snugs for reading & spa pools to soak in & acquaint yourself with the stars at night.
With this abundance of natural attractions, our guests always have something new to experience. We have plenty of space for them with 3 lounges, 14 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms & 3 extra toilets adjacent to the restaurant which seats 60. Providing outstanding food & accommodation (see tripadvisor) has seen the business grow substantially over 22 years, yet still retaining its’ warm, relaxed atmosphere.
Nestled in the lush rolling hills of the thriving Waipâ district, midway between Waitomo & Rotorua, it's an hour’s drive to either coast or Taupô & just over 2 to Auckland. With a stunning outlook facing North to Pukeatua Peak, we are in the perfect location to support & complement the development of Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari as this ambitious project continues to grow, drawing increasing numbers of local & international tourists. Selling as a going concern, the current reputation ensures new owners can carry on operating at this pace, balancing their work and lifestyle as they please without worrying about the mortgage, or else take it in a completely new direction.
New year, new beginnings, make it yours. www.styx.co.nz
