Welcome to Kimi Ora Eco Resort. Kimi Ora means "Seek health" in Maori - and it is here you will find it! Nestled amongst 12 hectares of tranquil hillside bush, Kimi Ora Eco Resort overlooks the golden sands of Kaiteriteri beach and is right on the doorstep of the popular Abel Tasman...
Stayed just for one night...just to get away. Brilliant value for money 'off peak' season when you factor in breakfast included and all the facilities. Check out is 10.30am, but we were welcome to use the facilities that day for as long as we wanted....More
So inviting stepping into a warm clean studio with everything at your fingertips. Great place to step away from the kids for the night. Swim sauna dunk in cold water then dinner and walk off the meal to check out the glow worms. wake up...More
Stunning location, fantastic service, spacious clean rooms with a view, great food and an relaxing massage. A really nice touch was the birthday card and chocolates - couldn't have asked for a better birthday treat!
Stunning hillside location looking out to Kaiteriteri Estuary and beach. Our family only live an hour's drive from Kimi-Ora, but our stay felt like we were on holiday a million miles away! This said, our warm, comfy room surrounded by native bush and friendly staff...More

There are bus/shuttle services that go from Nelson to Kaiteriteri. I didn't use it as we had a car when staying there, but they are daily and most likely more than 1 a day from various companies. Once you've booked your accommodation, I would suggest you contact the resort directly and ask them to either advise you which company to use, best way to get to them or they may even be able to organise a transfer for you from Nelson. They were very helpful and lovely to deal with when we stayed there.
Its a short walk from the main beach up to the resort although not the easiest with luggage.
A beautiful part of the country and you can get water taxis from the main beach up into the National Park for day trips if required. So you can see a lot without needing to have a car (as long as you are able to walk short distances).
I can recommend sea kayaking in the area and an overnight stay at the Awaroa Lodge near the top of the park if you want to spend a bit of time walking some of the tracks. There are plenty of day trip options too where you can visit some lovely beaches, and seal colonies and do some walks.

Hi. Kimi Ora Resort is about an hour from Nelson I am unsure of the buses that go to Kaiteriteri as we have never had to use them. The other alternative is to hire a car for a couple of day's. That will give you the freedom to look around a bit & you will want to as it's a beautiful part of the country.
