Luxurious Te Waonui is filled with design flourishes that evoke the land: twinkly lights suggest glowworms, coal-black walls nod to the mining past, and local stone provides an earthy backdrop. Beyond the gorgeous, greenery-facing rooms, the prime draws are the five-course degustation dinner (included in the price) and the nightly Māori cultural show.

Top-notch green credentials include thoughtful use of natural light and building materials that are either recycled or sustainably sourced. Reuse your towels and the owners donate $5 to a kiwi conservation charity.
