Time away from life's pressures whilst being pampered turned in to so much more with Reinhard and Petra. Not only are you treated to mouth watering flavours that you must close your eyes to savour, you are enveloped by an environment where you can finally rest and contemplate. We experienced wonderful conversations reflecting Reinhards experiences and philosophies and came away...

On our journey through New Zealand we stayed at the Bushland Park Lodge for Christmas. It was a great and wonderful stay there. We could really enjoy it because Petra and Reinhard care attentively and friendly about us. The food they cooked by themselves was also brilliant and the luxury rooms and the relaxing athmosphere in their little paradies were...

Together with some friends we greatly enjoyed the lodge and hospitality of Petra and Reinhard during new year. It were some amazing days with walks through thick rain-forest, dolphin-watching and relaxing in their sauna - during the evening the chef surprised us with exzellent food. We want to thank our hosts and look forward to coming again to Bushland Park...

My husband and I spent two nights at the Bushland Park Lodge and resort with Petra and Reinhard, the perfect hosts. Our every need was catered for whilst respecting our privacy. The five course meal was amazing and topped off with wines to compliment each course. We finished off the night with a romantic bath together with bubbles and champagne.

Delightful blend of quaint amenities, quality food served on stunning glassware made by Petra and Reinhard, a serene environment and privacy for those special occasions. Glow worms, the bush and Wentworth Falls combined with the outdoor bath by candlelight adding that extra element making the overall experience magical. The ideal place to relax and rejuvenate!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Bushland Park Lodge & Retreat in Whangamata created its own speciality for a high quality and very personal hosting. The owners "Petra & Reinhard" love to share their passion with their guests for fine dining, glass-art & pure nature with New Zealand "bush & beach". Exclusively only 3 fortunate couples experience this very unique place in the Coromandel Peninsula New Zealand with a variety of attractive features: A private glow-worm grotto just 3 minutes from your dining table. Outdoors, close to the lily pond and with total privacy a "Double Slipper Bath" to gaze at the Milky Way stars with Champagne & Candles. Your "private Chef" offers high class cuisine in the Lodge's dining wine cellar; often on his own created art glass dinnerware. Bush walks to the famous Wentworth Falls start at the doorstep, and glorious white-sand beaches are only a few minutes' drive away. Two golf courses close by. Bushland Park Lodge is not just a stop along the way, but a destination in its own right. ... more   less
