Castaways Village

Castaways Village

Castaways for Groups, 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 new day spa, beautiful restaurant - Agave, and loads of adventure activities. It's one of the most popular wedding and conference destinations in the Greater Auckland region.

Castaways already have romantic 'couples' glamping in the form of their Coastal Tents and Totara Tree Tent - and now they've added a group glamping option - the Glam Camping Village. 

Sleeping up to 24 in their own rooms or 48 twin share, this is the perfect, unique group accommodation option. Whether it's a work team getaway, family reunion or special birthday celebration - the Glam Camping Village has the right vibe and atmosphere to create an event to remember. 

Each tent has two bedrooms with super king-sized beds. Each bedroom has its own ensuite, complete with flushing toilet and steaming hot shower. Hotel quality linen, bedding and towels are provided, meaning all you need to do is pack a suitcase.

Meals are completely taken care of - covered in the per person price. You'll have your own chef preparing a delicious meal for your group in the camp kitchen. 

The rustic outdoor setting comes complete with fire-pit for socialising and star-gazing. Other facilities include the outside bar, wood fire pizza oven, expansive outdoor kitchen with spit roast, extensive lounging area with plasma television, and a large dining area that sneaks hidden views towards the crashing waves and setting sun.

If you're looking for a unique and interesting way to celebrate a large special occasion - this is it!

  • 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.
