Aria – self-contained modern Apartment

Aria is often called a true Eyrie with stupendous views and an ever-changing light. It seems like the show never stops. This large guest wing apartment offers a clean modern fit out with high-quality beds and crisp cotton linens to enhance your stay.

Take a dip in the heated lap pool, after dark and under the stars for a little adventure. Dine alfresco on the expansive deck areas and yes, just look at that view! Listen to our national icon the Kiwi calling at dusk or at night. These unique New Zealand birds live in the native forest behind Aria. You will most likely hear them calling.

Enjoy staying in all day to enjoy the views. We wouldn’t blame you! Walking and hiking is an easy activity with easy direct access to our National Te Ara Roa walkway opposite the driveway. Whangarei Heads also has an array of great walking tracks for all ages and abilities.

There is a private parking area with access steps to the apartment.

Catering available, please view options here.
