Enter Te Waonui Forest Retreat
Located on the South Island’s West Coast village of Franz Josef, Te Waonui operates with environmental preservation top-of-mind.
The retreat is not camping or ‘roughing it’ by any means.
You can choose from the super king- or queen-sized beds within a spacious guest room with beautiful views of the forest surrounding. It’s nice to look out your window and see a sea of green colours.
