From the moment guests check in, they will experience the finest hospitality from our team and experienced guides. It’s a privilege to say that, after a visit to Poronui, our guests consider our staff and guides to also be friends.
Check in: from 2 PM
Check out: 10 AM
Sumptuous breakfast options are served each morning, catering to any dietary needs or desires guests have, before they head out with their guide for a day of fishing–by air or road. Helicopters arrive to pick up guests from 9 AM onward, whisking them away to incredibly remote and beautiful rivers and streams. All gear is supplied: waders, boots, rods, flies.
A bespoke packed lunch is provided for each guest to enjoy on the river. Throughout the day you’ll be casting your fly or nymph into the spring-fed waters, trying to snare a fat and iridescent rainbow or a stealthy brown, waiting another moment longer for it to turn with the fly in its mouth. It’s just your skill and the river at play–with excellent tuition from your experienced and knowledgeable guide who’s by your side every step of the way.
Arrive back at the Lodge late afternoon; guests often walk through the front door with waders still on and share the day’s experiences with other keen anglers before dinner.
Dinner is typically served around 7 PM and is served family style in the main Lodge. Created by our team of chefs with the freshest seasonal ingredients and accompanied by a selection of beautiful wines (all included in the tariff). A wine list is also available should guests prefer to purchase different wines.
Additional activities on property include trophy hunting (red stags, sika, fallow, rusa, Arapawa rams, goats), walk-up and driven pheasants (season May-August), hiking, mountain biking, gym, sauna, steam room, clay bird, horse riding, and more.
