Stayed at the lodge for a weekend for a family wedding at Blake House. Pretty much had both places to ourselves: incredible venue for a wedding, gorgeous locality; amazing staff; delicious food. Faultless:

Our stay in Poronui came at the end of our visit to New Zealand and what a place to ensure you want to return . In fact all of the other guests there were returning visitors and we can see why . We spent 3 days riding on the vast estate . Our guide Olivia was exceptional , not only was she extremely accomplished with the horses but also very knowledgable about the estate and the different activities , fly fishing , forestry , hunting and history . Our horses were perfect , used to the terrain and well looked after . The accommodation was five star , the food , our picnics and dinner delicious . We felt like we were staying with family yet treated like royalty . I could not recommend this highly enough .

Our private bungalow was hospital clean with a deck view of the hundreds of Red Stags and thsheep herds grazing next to a crystal clear river that was home to monster trout that took flys readily. Dining with all guests and guides made it feel like eating with your family and the food and wine was as good a many Paris eateries. Quiet elegance on a 16,000 acre estate designed for its guests seeking adventure in splendor with impeccable sincere and authentic New Zealand old fashioned hospitality. Big trout take dry flys here.

I have stayed at Poronui and the Blake House a number of times, and all stays without exception have been fantastic. The station is over 16000 acres so lots to do and see. I have visited on business (as well as with family) you are well catered for, and looked after by Eve and her team. Lots of different accommodation on the property from the cabins at the main lodge, the majestic Blake House, down to the camping by the Mohaka River at the Safari Camp. Unique experiences are something that the Poronui team exceed expectations on, my favorite would have to be private chef at the Blake House or dinner in the underground wine cellar. Poronui is pretty magical and if you are wanting once in a lifetime kind of experience - highly recommend.
