About YHA Punakaiki, Te Nikau Retreat for Groups: 

Nestled in the native West Coast bush adjoining the Paparoa National Park, YHA Punakaiki, Te Nikau Retreat truly is one of the most unique accommodation secrets you’re likely to come across.

Our character lodges and cabins have excellent facilities with all the comforts of home, plus homemade bread and chocolate brownies baked daily for sale. Our property is just a few minutes' walk through the rainforest via the Truman Track to the breathtaking coastline.

YHA Punakaiki can cater for up to 40 people across 15 rooms. We have 13 dorm beds in 2 lodges along with various twin and double rooms, with or without en-suite bathrooms. Room configurations and numbers may be amendable if required for group gender splits. All of our rooms come fully made up with fresh linen and duvets.

Lodges may be booked for private sole use for groups. Please note that due to the layout of lodges, larger groups may be spread around a few minutes walk from each other. Shared bathroom facilities are situated in each group lodge along with full kitchens. All bedding is provided (duvets, sheets and pillows) and towels can be hired.  Please note that we have a limited number of private rooms with ensuite facilities, subject to availability.
