  • 20 mins drive out of Napier

    20 mins drive out of Napier. Peaceful rural location with great views, excellent facilities and wonderful garden to roam in. Large spa pool and bird life in abundance.

  • We had a great time at Lomani Wai

    We had a great time at Lomani Wai. Kids enjoyed playing with "pipi" and feeding the ducks at the pond. My wife and I enjoyed some quiet time with a glass of wine at the outdoor Spa. Fantastic quiet country location yet not too far from town. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys the peace and quiet of country living with all the modern amenities on hand.

  • Very tranquil setting, but with great access to Napier

    Very tranquil setting, but with great access to Napier. Well furnished to a very high standard. Large and comfortable beds. Well equipped kitchen and an outdoor hot tub with a view to remember. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting tranquility and a chance to relax and unwind. Also a great base to explore Napier and its surrounding area. We hope to return one day.
