Our spacious glamping tents are situated on a laid-back holiday park offering the ideal surroundings for surfing, boating, fishing and diving. The park can easily be found while following one of New Zealand’s best touring routes – the Pacific Coast Highway.

Tatapouri is a fantastic base to explore the untouched solitude of the East Cape. When you stay out at Tatapouri, you'll feel like you're a million miles from anywhere.

The space
Our secure Lotus Belle tents situated on right on the water's edge with an amazing sea view. These very spacious tents are made up with a comfortable queen bed, quality linen, duvet, pillows, and towels. Solar powered LED lights and portable lamps are provided.

We have communal facilities that include a kitchen equipped with gas hobs, microwave, fridge/freezers, pots, pans, cutlery, crockery, toasters, and kettles. Our bathrooms are kept tidy and most importantly we have hot showers. There is a coin operated laundry available.

We are located at Tatpouri Campground which is 12mins from Gisborne township which has supermarkets, cafes, restraunts and shops.

Where you’ll be

Gisborne, New Zealand

We are right next door to the world famous Stingray feeding at Dive Tatapouri. But if you're here to relax you won't need to go far. Makarori Surf beach is just around the corner and Wainui beaches are just a few minutes away.

The township of Gisborne is only a 12-minute drive away and has all the necessities you may need while on holiday with supermarkets and shops. If you want to catch a movie head to Dome Cinema for a unique viewing experience.

You can continue further past the township and head to the natural phenomenon Rere Rockslide or if you're looking for something with less of an adrenaline rush, you can visit one of the many vineyards while you are in the Chardonnay capital.

Kia Ora friends! We are a locally owned and operated business on the stunning East Cape of Aotearoa.

My partner Shanti and I have always dreamed of creating a space which could encompass all of our passions; creative expression, nature appreciation, connection, good food and community. After doing our dash in the big smoke we decided to opt for a simpler existence. A life that would bring us back to nature, ourselves and one another. Little did we know that our dreams would manifest in the form of a boutique campground in Gisborne.

When we stepped on the scene in April 2019 the space was in desperate need of some TLC. With the help of family, friends and team, we were able to combine our skills and efforts to give it an extreme makeover, campground edition.

We are grateful to be here, waking up to the world’s first sunrise each morning and love to share the beauty of this whenua with everyone.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you soon,

Shanti & Nathan
