Welcome to Poronui

New Zealand's Premier Sporting Lodge

Experience the very best of New Zealand in one place.

Poronui is the ultimate luxury sporting retreat, a place where you can have fun and relax in the authentic New Zealand countryside.

Located in the beautiful Taharua Valley on New Zealand’s spectacular North Island, the estate boasts some of the world’s best wilderness experiences. The scenery is breathtaking, the hospitality is second-to-none, but it is the attention to the little things that makes a stay here truly memorable.

Be engulfed by warm welcome, unforgettable experiences, passionate people, luxury accommodation and gourmet New Zealand cuisine.

The ultimate brown and rainbow trout fly fishing experience.

Whether you are a discerning angler or just starting out, nothing says ultimate fishing holiday like Poronui. Being surrounded by spectacular scenery and casting a dry fly over a big, wild trout in a crystal clear stream is what it is all about. Just a short drive or helicopter flight from the lodge, several of New Zealand’s best backcountry rivers run through the Poronui estate.

Luxurious Accommodation

The Poronui estate features three different accommodation options. Choose from the relaxed atmosphere of the Lodge, the seclusion of Blake House private villa or the unplugged bliss of Safari Camp.


Nestled in the secluded Taharua Valley on New Zealand’s spectacular North Island, Poronui is located in the Central Plateau region between Taupo and Napier.

Arrive by car, plane or helicopter or ask about our pick up transfer options from Taupo, Napier or Rotorua airports.

At Poronui there is nothing that you have to do, but plenty that you can do.
