The vision was there, back in 1992 when we purchased Te Mahia Bay Resort. We were captivated by the natural beauty of the bay, its enchanting beach and surrounding bush.

To enhance this even more, we delved into the wonderful rich history of Te Mahia as a holiday resort for thousands of holiday makers over the last century.

The last 29 years have seen us undertake major refurbishment of the original buildings, giving them back their feeling of warmth and character with special personal touches. These are now known as our heritage units where the icon of the kiwi batch remains, but with all of today’s modern home comforts.

To cater for the growing demand at Te Mahia by holiday makers, we built four spacious motel units in 1996. These have been a tremendous asset and blend in beautifully with the original buildings at Te Mahia.


In 2006 Te Mahia underwent another amazing transformation with the development of two new superb up-market sea view apartments. These stunning apartments are fully self catering with magnificent water views out through the phoenix palms.

Adding to the peaceful, tranquil atmosphere, we have continued to develop the wonderful gardens for our guests to relax in.

Our philosophy is to show we care.

We care for our unique environment at Te Mahia, we care for our wonderful buildings steeped in history, we care about the special little touches, we care about our family and staff.

We care about you, our clients, to ensure you have a wonderful holiday, taking away with you those special and fond memories of what Te Mahia Bay Resort is all about.
