Yes there is mobile coverage in the tents.
We have built the tents to be as comfortable as possible in all weather conditions. However due to the nature of glamping accommodation – strong winds and rain can affect the tents more than a bricks and mortar building. Being perched high on a ridge with spectacular views, it can go from dead still to extremely windy and anything in-between. Each of our tents have wood fireplaces, water tight, and many of our guests love snuggling up inside by the fireplace during large storms and hearing the rain fall onto the canvas – it’s all part of the experience!
We aim to keep our Glamping Tents as peaceful as possible. For this reason we provide you with your very own electric buggy to reach your Glamping Tent.
Follow the signs to the Glamping carpark. Park in the designated parking area and grab any of the available buggy’s and follow the signs up to the Glamping Tents.
The bonus of having your very own buggy is you can take it down to the beach as they are licensed for the road!

Tent Korimako is the front Tent closest to the ocean. Level with the ground, it has a large outdoor area directly in front of the tent and the baths are on an added deck on the side of the tent.
Tent Kanuka is behind Tent Korimako and is higher up. It is perched up in the trees and therefore the outdoor fire pit is on the ground at the bottom of the stairs leading up to the tent. The baths are on the front balcony directly in front of the bedroom.
Both Tents have been tastefully decorated with luxury interiors with different colours. Both Tents receive breakfast, all luxury amenities and use of their very own electric buggy.
