Te Waonui Forest Retreat – Hibernation

Following New Zealand national border restrictions put in place due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, traditional seasonal closures and the hotel’s high profile of international guests, our Te Waonui Forest Retreat will be placed into hibernation, reopening in September 2021. We will continue to monitor and review as restrictions are lifted and look to providing travellers exceptional experiences again.

Alternative accommodation is available in Franz Josef Glacier at four star rated Scenic Hotel Franz Josef Glacier.
