Club Paihia consists of nine modern decor chalets, with a mix of studios, 1 bedroom
or spacious 2 bedroom apartments and shared, fully equipped laundries. Each unit
has its own deck where you can enjoy outdoor meals, while inside you have a full
kitchen and open plan dining-lounge area.
Between the chalets are six strategically placed spa pool pergolas for easy access
from your apartment. There is also a sauna room in the core block.
The resort is nestled on about 2.6ha of native bush with matted boardwalks

while listening to the birdsong. Meandering through the bush walk you can
stop in at the dedicated orchid house and check out the stunning array of rare and
When you complete the full bush loop you’ll walk past the well-used tennis court,
and fun filled children’s playground area, before passing the petanque court.
Without doubt the swimming pool complex is the most popular feature on the resort! The cascade of three heated pools begins with a spa rock pool, then on to an undercover heated pool which had proved ideal for young families. The third, heated and deepest pool is the most popular with young and old unlike. Finally, there is a much shallower unheated pool which is great for just about anyone especially on a hot summer’s day. Surrounding the pool complex are a series of loungers, tables and chairs. The pool cascade is connected by a walkway bridge for easy access.
The pool complex is beside the extensive owners’ lounge. In the past this has been
utilised as a full restaurant although today its an excellent gathering place, for all of
our guests. It is also the venue for the weekly “Owners Happy Hour”, when the
resort provides light refreshments & nibbles, so that the attending guests can make
new friends and share their ownership holiday experiences.
There are two barbecue areas, each with their own tables and chairs. The largest
barbecue area is beside the pools, while there are two gas barbecues in the
outdoor dining area above chalets 8 and 9. These areas are often great places to
meet your friends and fellow owners after a day’s shopping, sightseeing, fishing or
generally exploring the Bay of Islands and surrounding district.

One popular feature of our resort is the dedicated boat park. A rarity in this day
and age for a holiday apartment complex, but not at Club Paihia. There is room for
6 trailer boats and a few jet skis as well. Naturally you can expect facilities to wash
down your boat as well as a lockable gear & bait storage room (with freezers) and a
filleting station to complete the experience of a great day out on the water.
For the active people amongst us the fully equipped gymnasium and sauna are located
beside the boat park.
Next to Chalet 3 is the bike park, with free use of bicycles for the guests while
staying at Club Paihia resort. The bikes are on a combination lock with the code
available from reception on arrival.
