Serious business in nature’s playground

The success and delegates’ enjoyment of any meeting or conference depends on the venue. Here is a New Zealand venue that has it all. The private location is dramatic, naturally pristine and close enough and accessible to Auckland, yet in a seaside location that seems a world away.

Grand Mercure Puka Park Resort, nestled in 25 acres of native bush, close to Pauanui Beach, is due to complete the refurbishment of its 48 chalets and public areas, to restore the tree house chalets to luxurious comfort level, with on trend fashion elements, fabrics, occasional furniture and accessories.

As delegates arrive they will immediately be embraced by the sense of tranquil peace surrounded by Coromandel forest and met by native birdsong. Checking in at the Lodge the delegates get a sense of the comfort and enjoyment from the facilities; the dining and social experiences; and the meeting spaces with the all important breakout rooms and team building opportunities on offer.

Finished with fabrics of natural flora designs and timber furniture feet, feature lamps and artwork frames, the ambiance is that of a mountain lodge.

The Chalet’s new bathrooms are sleek and well fitted out, with extensive use of stone, luxurious showers and in some rooms large free standing baths. These chalets amongst the trees are something to see and experience.

The draw of the wood fire in the main lounge will continue to be a feature whilst the addition of a fireplace in the restaurant will add to the overall dining experience. For groups the private dining area within the restaurant, lined by wall-mounted wine racks, will provide an intimate space for group dining.

Mixing eclectic visual art forms of digital graphics and traditional original artwork, delegates will be visually stimulated, and soothed at the same time, enveloped in comfort and warm service.

For delegates wanting down time, the outdoor solar heated swimming pool and spa offers hydrotherapy, whilst the gym and tennis courts encourage cardio activity. Mountain Bikes allow a chance to explore the local scenery, walking trails and visit the beach. There is an international Golf Course and excellent fishing close by too, for those with time to enjoy.

Puka Park Resort offers specially designed conference packages, unique dining and professional services for conference bookers. Ideally suited for small to medium meetings, conference organisers who request a proposal for an event at this natural New Zealand venue will be given the opportunity to experience the venue first hand with a hosted weekend away.
