The Kereru Suite also has a private spa pool. Dining options include seafood-oriented Foredeck for regional specialties and a casual waterside café. The property also comprises a heated pool, a cedar hot tub, a seasonal spa and 10 moorings for boats. Outdoor activities include treks to see bioluminescent glow-worm colonies on the property and beech forest bush walks. Dolphin interactions and fishing charters are also available.
