Castaways Coastal Tents

Castaways Coastal Tents

Karioitahi Beach

Castaways Resort is a spectacular North Island coastal property in the South Western corner of Auckland, just 50 minutes drive from the CBD.

The well known resort offers guest accommodation, a tranquil day spa, beautiful restaurant - Agave, and loads of adventure activities.

Castaways have embraced Glam Camping, and with three Coastal Tents located on the secluded cliffs above Karioitahi Beach, a tree tent suspended in between two mighty totara trees and a unique new group glamping Village - they've not done it by halves.

The Coastal Tents are located 10 minutes by golf cart from the main resort, giving couples a chance to instantly unwind in a truly restful and romantic spot. With your gourmet self-cook dinner and breakfast included in the package, all you need to think about is getting yourself there - the rest is taken care of.

These specially designed tents are the ultimate in 5 star glamping. Although completely off-grid, solar power produces electricity for lighting, stereo, even an espresso machine and refrigerator - which you'll find stocked full with all the food you'll need to create delicious, gourmet meals on the BBQ.

  • Your Hosts

    Castaways is set on a recreation reserve in the most south western corner of Auckland City.

    In 2002 Gavin & Raewyn Shine purchased the property and existing business (KP's) and after extensive renovations to the restaurant, reopened as Castaways, a Wedding, Conference and Dining destination.

    Over the years Castaways has grown and expanded to include 25 chalets and studio units, a day spa, beautiful new restaurant - Agave, and loads of adventure activities. It's now one of the most popular wedding and conference destinations in the Greater Auckland region.

    In 2013, Gavin and Raewyn started a whole new Castaways experience with Castaways Glam Camping. They started with just one, and now have the three coastal tents and the Totara tree tent to offer guests. Their latest glamping endeavour is the brand new Glam Camping Village. Serena Shine, Gavin's daughter has taken over management of the glam camping for Castaways and is supported by a number of friendly and helpful staff, including live-in resort managers.
