Located in the heart of the Abel Tasman National Park, the eco-lodge has a glass-walled Conservatory with breathtaking wetlands views.

Harakeke Restaurant operates an incredible organic garden, scattering its herbs and seasonal vegetables liberally throughout the regionally influenced menus. Bread is baked fresh daily on-site. The Lodge Cafe is an open outdoor courtyard where you can find a sunny spot and relax with coffee and snacks all day.

The main lodge is spacious, with a fireplace in the lounge and comfy armchairs around it.

Peppers Awaroa is also well-known for its sustainability mission. It has been awarded the ‘Silver Certification’ from EarthCheck for its eco-conscious efforts.

All this, in a wilderness so remote there is no direct road access.

Go there

The Lodge is minutes from the Abel Tasman Coast Track, but with no direct access by road you’ll need to think more adventurously. You can arrive by sea kayak or on the Sea Shuttle. Get close to the scenery and wildlife with an Aqua Taxi. Put your luggage on a water taxi and walk in on the Track, or enjoy a scenic flight by helicopter.


The restaurant and cafe is an integral part of the Awaroa experience. Savour the smell of freshly baked breads straight from the oven. Enjoy the freshness of seasonal vegetables and herbs handpicked from an organic garden and delivered to your table.



Immerse yourself in such natural wonders as glow worm caves, just 10 minutes walk from the Lodge. Visit a salmon farm and catch your dinner. Kayak out to fur seals and penguins and catch a water taxi back. The climate is mild and the area has the most sun-filled days in New Zealand.
