Part of the Tasman Promise is delivering spaces that are safe, clean, and friendly. These might be the basics, but they’re not basic to us.

When you arrive at a Tasman holiday park, you will be welcomed as a friend to a clean and safe place that allows you to relax and unwind.


Such a cool spot! Parked right by the beach, loved the sound of the ocean all night and dog friendly beach just 5 mtrs away! What more can one ask for. Staff were excellent, facilities clean and tidy.

M B, Papamoa Beach

In our large (hired) motorhome during our NZ road trip we stayed at 31 different campsites. I would place this camp in the top 3 it was so good. All the staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities were modern, extensive and very clean.

Les N, Beachaven

A great place to stay with every thing you need in a camping ground. Pets are welcome which is a big bonus

Don, Beachaven

Set in beautifully kept grounds with the camp facilities absolutely spotless and top notch.

Carol S, Beachaven

Stayed two nights with my partner, set up a tent on one of their beach-side powered sites. The site was tidy and very sheltered. Staff were very helpful and friendly, the park is very family-friendly and the playground and jumping pillow would keep kids entertained for hours.

Adam Kerr, Waihi Beach

This is our favourite holiday resort to take our girls and since first coming here a couple of years back we have now visited several times. As soon as we arrive our girls are off on their scooters to play with the other kids around or to play on the playground. They get to safely experience a real sense of independence here. Which means that mum and dad get to relax!

Bike Mad Mum, Waihi Beach

Second time caravanning here, both times the site was on an elevated area overlooking the sea, was stunning to wake up to each day. Excellent facilities, great location close to shops etc. kids loved the fun bikes.

Dianne M, Papamoa Beach

We camped at Papamoa beach resort for 3 days and kids loved it. It is the cleanest campsite we have ever been to.

Phoebe H, Papamoa Beach

We stayed at the campground in our motorhome on one of the sites with a concrete pad. We had a view of the sea and close to the superb amenities: kitchen, toilets and showers. Lots of space and the safe swimming beach right there. Will certainly come again.

Larry D, Papamoa Beach

This place is suitable for all age groups and offers one of the finest stay experiences within the campus. Can’t expect anything better than this.

Aman Sharma, Papamoa Beach

Just one of the must-visit campsites in NZ which fronts onto one of the best beaches in NZ! Lovely golden sand and good surf for body surfing.

Wendy W, Papamoa Beach

We have stayed in one of the Seaview Lodges. Highly recommended! Modern, very clean and well equipped Lodge with amazing see views, loved it!

Albert and Isa, Papamoa Beach

Wow wow wow!!!! What an awesome place for a family holiday, the beachfront villas are perfect for a family of 4. The views are breathtaking and the supermarkets are close by.

Peter W, Papamoa Beach

If there is a place I’d love to go back to every summer, it’s this place. We stayed in a villa which is by the sea. Our room opens up to the soothing & relaxing smell of the ocean’s breeze. You forget all your stresses in life admiring the magnificent view in front of you. I am a nocturnal person, but couldn’t resist the urge to witness the sun rises and enjoyed my morning walk on the beach. It was indeed a vacation.

Grazee, Papamoa Beach

My boyfriend and I hired a powered site for our hired campervan at this holiday park during our recent trip to New Zealand. We had excellent beach views, the amenities were 5-star and the staff were friendly and very helpful.

Angie, Papamoa Beach

We stayed in our motorhome this time, and during off-peak we were allowed to bring our dogs, provided that are leashed. This is a fantastic place to stay. Beautiful walk along the beach with the dogs.

Jenny, Papamoa Beach

We all walked and brought take outs back and sat on the picnic tables enjoying the evening and sunset. The next morning we cooked breakfast in one of the units for 13. There was a barbecue outside which the bacon was cooked and we had 3 toasters going. It was a lot of fun and I wished I could of stayed a few more nights.

Ria, Papamoa Beach

Easter bliss! Great free showers, good cooking facilities, amazing beach location. There were lots of families.

Juzzy Hall, Papamoa Beach

This Holiday Park has a lot going for it. It is well situated next to Lake Te Anau and next to the town centre itself. Of course, it is also the logical Park to stay at if you intend visiting Milford Sound using your own vehicle.

Les N, Te Anau

Wow what a fabulous and clean holiday park! The best holiday park we stayed in… When we arrived at this holiday park we had so much to ‘wow’. They even had a jumping pillow and awesome play room with an extra tv in there, air hockey and foos ball which my 8 year old son absolutely loved. It was a quiet stay that we will remember always. Stay longer than a night though as Te Anau is a great little town!

Tara C, Te Anau

We found this to be the best holiday park on South Island road trip. We had a very spacious grassed-powered site for our 4 berth Campervan (I made sure I booked early though), right next to the showers, kitchen, bbq and (more importantly) the playground. It is an excellent base for going to either Milford Sound or Doubtful Sound.

Geoff C, Te Anau

Everything has been thought of at Waihi Beach Top10. The service by staff exceeded our expectations. We travelled with a disabled family member and the excellent service and facilities allowed their full participation and enjoyment.

Jo Liddell, Waihi Beach

The arrival process was easy and the staff were friendly. The grounds are nice and there is plenty for the kids to do including a modern playground, jumping pillow, trampoline, slides and not to forget the swimming pool with water slide and children’s pool.

Robert, Christchurch

We stayed in a cozy cottage with our two children. Great BBQ area, and my children loved the heated pool with a slide.

Suzy Dunn, Christchurch

We stayed at Kozy Kiwi as the name said it’s cosy. The room was warm when we arrived and I really appreciated that!

Umi M, Christchurch

Very helpful & friendly staffs..they even helped us booked trip to Akaroa for dolphin watching..we come back from Akaroa and stayed another night.

Syaze, Christchurch

It suited me well as a base for day trips in to town and the surrounding areas.

Michael E, Christchurch

Our family of four adults stayed here for two nights. The two bedroom ensuite unit was comfortable with a good sized fridge and self contained kitchen.

Leone N, Christchurch

Being situated within a Holiday Park you have access to all their facilities such as the swimming pool and washing facilities, which is great if you have been on the road from UK for a week in hotels.

Kev, Christchurch

We had a great powered site for our motorhome. close to all amenities which were very clean and tidy.

Rick, Christchurch
