Hotels in Hokitika New Zealand
The proximity of the rugged coastline to mountain ranges and primeval forests is a rare phenomenon indeed and, as if to complement an already perfect scene, the World Heritage and Glacier Regions lie beyond. Bounded by a magnificent unspoiled coastline, shrouded by rainforest and protected by the towering might of the Southern Alps, active pursuits and visual indulgences on the West Coast are abundant in their possibilities.
Clear mountain-fed streams feed the West Coast lakes and rivers providing excellent fishing and boating opportunities, while the primeval forests allow for exhilarating explorations into the unknown. Perhaps the only dilemma is which activity to pursue first. A gentle sail, a paddle-boat cruise, a scenic flight, a fishing expedition or perhaps a pioneering adventure into isolated bush and uncharted NZ waters.
Whatever your decision, be assured that nestled in this scenic wonderland is a comforting town centre from which to enjoy the magnificence that surrounds Hokitika. Our Hokitika hotel accommodation provides for every possible comfort after a day of exhilarating activity or leisurely pleasure.
Our Hokitika accommodation is friendly and hospitable. Choose from NZ award-winning restaurants, or the local gloriously secluded beach, all of which encourage indulged relaxation, while heritage trails, visitor attractions, gallery exhibitions and craft demonstrations provide information about Hokitika, interest and enjoyment.
It is no coincidence that craft artists, sculptors, jewellers, painters and poets have chosen Hokitika as their home. Rich in mineral deposits, natural materials and scenic inspiration, creative talent is abundant, celebrated and diverse. Gold, jade (pounamu) and natural timbers not only provide materials for our artisan talent, but have also contributed towards the economy and vibrant heritage of Hokitika.
