Waihi Waterlily Gardens
Apartment, Bed and Breakfast, Cottage, Luxury Accommodation - Waihi
Set in 15 acres of unique and enchanting water gardens, architecturally designed cottages, 'Lily Pad' and 'Lotus' are 2007 additions to the Waihi Waterlily Gardens.
'Lotus' Self-contained, bed and breakfast or fully catered accommodation. Open plan and delightfully laid out, bi-fold doors merge outside gardens with open-plan cottage interiors. Built for four seasons, spacious decks invite summer relaxation, while cosy fires ensure a snug winter. With stylish decor, both cottages have a luxurious king-sized bed, full cooking facilities and entertainment.
'Lily Pad' Cottage features a double-sized mezzanine, a unique sleeping experience for a second couple or children.
The Waihi Waterlily Gardens, established in 1950, are located at the intersection of the Coromandel, Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions, on the outskirts of Waihi, one of New Zealand's most historically recognised towns. Rich in gold, the area has some of the country's most scenic bushwalks, scattered with relics of the region's mining past. The Waihi Waterlily Gardens are in the midst of it all - just minutes away from glorious bushwalks, beaches of golden sands, a great golf course, and a township with a 'heart of gold'.
Beautifully mature trees, rolling topography, and a lake fed by a gently meandering stream set the framework for the Waihi Waterlily Gardens. The ponds, more than twenty in all, are rich with splashes of yellow, red, white, blue, pink, peach and cream; waterlilies delicate on the surface. Broad, rolling areas of lush green grass are segmented by clusters of ponds, giant trees and natural waterways.
The Water Garden Cafe is a central point of the property, with ample outdoor dining, expansive lawns and a giant Chess Board. Fully licensed, it offers, amongst other things, the best of local wines. There are a range of refeshments, including delightful coffee (often described as "the best, ever!"), teas, smoothies and organic juices. A display cabinet with freshly prepared food provides a great range of sweet and savoury, and for the seriously decadent, a platter with site-smoked salmon, freshly baked breads, crostinis, home-made chutneys, hummus, dips and local cheese has had more than its fair share of outstanding comments.
