Puketui Forest Escape


Luxury accommodation with a conscience. Hidden away in a privately owned Central North Island native forest you will discover Puketui. Located just 12km from Taupo, Puketui is an environmentally conscious, luxuriously appointed couples escape.

Puketui is glamping on a whole new level. Our bespoke handcrafted adjoining pod houses, one for sleeping, the other for relaxing, have been built and furnished to exacting standards, with every little detail considered for a fun yet luxurious experience. Our pod houses are insulated, double glazed and heated by our fabulous little Flick fireplace. With a nod to the environment Puketui is totally off the grid, with a substantial solar system in place and a modern hygienic composting loo. Whether you choose to simply relax on the deck, cozy up too the indoor or outdoor fires, or take a therapeutic walk through our beautiful forest , you will feel refreshed and energised. Your stay directly contributes to our forest conservation efforts.
