With stunning views over the ocean, Haka Lodge Bay of Islands is the best spot in town! From here you can easily tick off bucket-list activities such as swimming with wild dolphins and sailing around the Bay of Islands. We are only a short stroll from the bars and local hangouts which means you can party with the best of them whilst knowing that a quiet night’s sleep awaits you back at the Lodge. Our staff are multinational, friendly and ready to you help you experience the very best of the northern tip of New Zealand!
We are a premium penthouse backpackers located in central Paihia, the largest township in the Bay of Islands, with amazing views and an ethos that puts the customer before anything else.

Hotel Quality Mattresses – Who says cheap accommodation on the Bay of Islands has to mean uncomfortable beds? We don’t. We have hotel-quality mattresses for a great nights sleep.
Eco-friendly – We love our planet and our oceans and we try to minimise our impact on the world around us by recycling everything we can, feeding some lovely local pigs with our food waste and not using single use plastic if we can help it! We use recycled newspapers in the bins in our rooms, and use refillable bottles for our soaps and cleaning products. We also have a selection of reusable bags for our guests to use, to minimise the use of plastic bags in our town, and the water in our taps is safe to drink, so no need to buy plastic bottles either!
