The comfort of home...

in the heart of the wilderness

Relax in spacious, luxurious, open-plan suites with breath-taking panoramic views over the beautiful Bua River.

The Rooms

Tongole Wilderness Lodge features four luxury riverside suites and a beautiful two-bedroom family cottage.

The Riverside Suites

The riverside suites are perfectly designed to comfortably accommodate two adults. Two of the riverside suites are equipped with super king sized double bed and the other two feature twin beds, which can be easily joined to create a super king if required.

All rooms are en-suite with a spacious shower, twin marble basins, flushable lavatory and a large hand-built sunken bath, doubling as a plunge-pool ‘with a view’!
Every room has a fantastic wooden deck area offering stunning views over the river and forest; the perfect spot to enjoy a peaceful moment with nature.

The Family Cottage

Crafted by locals using the same distinctive red earth and rock upon which Tongole stands, the riverside family cottage has two bedrooms and a spacious lounge and deck area.

In addition to a second bedroom, the cottage provides plenty of extra communal space and is therefore ideal for a family or two couples travelling together.

Careful construction

The lodges have been carefully constructed so that they blend in with their natural surroundings; guests feel part of nature and the lodge is unobtrusive to any passing wildlife.

The lodge is supplied with 240v power and hot running water generated by the solar-powered system and back-up generator. Guests are normally too relaxed to feel the need to log on but WiFi is available throughout the lodge is needed!

All building materials were locally sourced and sustainable.
