About the property

"Lomani Wai" is Fijian for "Beloved Waters,' - a perfect name for this idyllic hideaway.

Fully air conditioned comfort with WiFi included.

Matuku apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and clothes washer.

Nature trails around the wetlands and lake allow you to take in the abundance of native birdlife.

Breakfast and travel transfers by request. Babysitting by arrangement. Dinner and wine tours also able to be arranged. Only minutes to Taradale, Ahuriri, Mission and Church Road wineries, Park Island sports facilities, and about 10 minutes to Napier CBD. Lomani Wai (Fijian for 'Beloved Waters,' ) is operated as a nature reserve homestay. Wake to the call of numerous native birds including Bellbirds, tuis, Fantails, Pukeko, and the very rare Matuku - Australasian Bittern. Also swans, ducks, (introduced and native,) and Dabchicks abound on the lake.

Dogs are welcome by arrangement and a kennel and run is generally available.

Property located out of the hustle and bustle of the town yet close enough to all amenities. Surrounded by farm land and over looking a pond. Quite and peaceful.

We had a great time at Lomani Wai.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Lomani Wai. Kids enjoyed playing with "pipi" and feeding the ducks at the pond. My wife and I enjoyed some quiet time with a glass of wine at the outdoor Spa. Fantastic quiet country location yet not too far from town. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys the peace and quiet of country living with all the modern amenities on hand.
