Luxury Accommodation

There are several reasons why native forestry accommodation is favoured by some individuals and organisations:

Sustainable development: Native forestry accommodation promotes sustainable tourism practices by minimising disruption to the natural environment. It focuses on utilising existing resources and structures, such as trees and natural landscapes, rather than building new and environmentally harmful structures.

Conservation and preservation: By integrating accommodation options seamlessly into the forest environment, native forestry accommodation helps preserve and protect the natural landscape. It allows guests to enjoy the beauty of the forest while fostering an appreciation for conservation efforts.

Immersive nature experience: Staying in native forestry accommodation allows visitors to immerse themselves in nature and experience the tranquillity and wildlife of the forest firsthand. This type of accommodation provides opportunities for nature walks, wildlife spotting, and other outdoor activities that enhance the relationship between humans and the natural world.

Ecotourism promotion: Our accommodation contributes to the growth of the ecotourism industry, which promotes responsible travel practices and encourages tourists to support conservation efforts. This type of accommodation attracts travellers who are looking for unique experiences that align with their values of environmental sustainability and wildlife conservation.

Economic benefits: Native forestry accommodations also boost local economies, especially in rural (like Northland) or remote areas where forests are often located. By attracting tourists, these accommodations generate income for local communities through accommodation fees, guided tours, and other related services.

Overall, native forestry accommodation provides an opportunity for individuals to reconnect with nature, promote sustainable development, and support the conservation of forests and their ecosystems.
