About The Resort
Ohope Beach Resort offers the ultimate in residential and holiday living. This luxury complex presents magnificent views from most suites. To the south stretches a panoramic view of the fabulous Ohiwa Harbour. A wide expanse of blue water is beautifully contrasted with lush rolling hills of natural bush, interspersed with fertile farmland, all majestically framed by the intriguing steel-blue Kaimanawa ranges in the distance. Always generating interest, the pristine tidal harbour presents a pleasant array of predominantly local yachts amidst the regular activity of sailboats, wind-surfers, and kayakers.

To the north stretches the glorious Pacific Ocean frequently scattered with a myriad of fishing vessels. In the distance is the ever-mysterious White Island, an active volcano occasionally belching voluminous white steam into a typically azure blue sky. Whale Island provides interest just offshore from the Whakatane heads to the west while the receding landscape of East Cape beckons from the east.

If you can ever drag yourself away from the captivating views, the recreational opportunities both within and immediately adjacent to this complex will keep you well occupied. Within the resort you can relax at the poolside or lounge in the temperate water - not too cold, but sufficient enough to cool you down on any one of those endlessly warm sunny days. Should you require warmer temperatures, the two spas (generally more suited for the evening or cooler days) are perfect for quiet relaxation. If action is your pastime you can enjoy a leisurely game of tennis on the adjacent court. For the fitness minded, there is the lap pool for building up just as many lengths as you desire while the gymnasium provides a range of exercise apparatus to tone that great figure of yours. A sauna, games room, and petanque court round out a good variety of recreational activities.

The Lounge/Cafe ensures residents and guests a communal place for social interaction and a place to watch the activities of others. The option of enjoying the on-site Cafe menu incorporated in the Lounge, sure beats preparing meals yourself back in your fully equipped suite. It is also a great place to share a relaxing social time with friends and family. Even if you prefer the privacy of your own apartment suite, room service is a pleasant option to help you get the full benefit of your relaxation time.

Should family and friends want outdoor living, the designated barbeque area provides a pleasant spacious place to gather for the occasion. If the need to venture outside the resort arises the options are virtually too numerous to record. A wide range of recreational equipment and service is available in the area including: surfing, sailing, water-skiing, jet-skiing, boating, sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, land-yachting, kayaking, biking and parasailing. There is an incredible range of fishing options from simply using a rod from the nearby wharf to chartering a deep-sea game fishing excursion. A long line from the beach, a net in the Harbour, fishing from a boat, surf-casting from the beach or harbour shore, or simply gathering a little of the abundant shellfish from around the shoreline, round out a range of other alternatives. The golf club is a mere two-minute drive from the resort, while a simple walk around the Ohope Spit is a pleasurable way to enjoy half a day. In addition, a local Harbour tour operator presents a great way to discover the beautiful Ohiwa harbour and enjoy the abundant bird life.

Right on the front doorstep of the resort there's the beach - one of New Zealand's safest (and with the uncommon orientation of due north), where you can enjoy all the usual beach side activities. The harbour also presents an immediately accessible alternative to the beach for playing in the water or on the shore.

A little further a-field, the Whakatane area offers a wide range of activities and pursuits. Most are no more than a half hour drive away. The likes of bush walks, thermal pools, fishing trips, a White Island tour, swim with the dolphins, 4-wheel bike adventures, mountain biking, horse treks, hunting, and trout fishing are but some of the variety of local activities that can be experienced.

New Zealand is a beautiful country and the Bay of Plenty must be one of the highlights of any tourist's itinerary. It has certainly become a highly desirable destination for the Kiwi vacation. Whakatane and Ohope have been one of the country's best-kept secrets, but its popularity is growing rapidly as more and more people discover the fantastic opportunities on offer in this truly amazing location.

Whether you simply want to rest easy in the luxury of your spacious suite, lounge leisurely about the resort, or engage in any one of a wide range of recreational pursuits, nowhere is there a better place to live or holiday than at Ohope Beach Resort.

Alternative restaurants and cafe's start just down the road while the neighbouring corner dairy is convenient for a range of necessary supplies.
