Cliffside Coastal Tents

Cliffside Glam Camping, Karioitahi Beach

Cliffside Glam Camping is set on a spectacular North Island coastal property (next to Castaways Resort) in the South Western corner of Auckland, just a 50-minute drive from the CBD.

There are three Cliffside Coastal Tents located on the secluded cliffs above Karioitahi Beach. The same owners also have a tree tent suspended in between two mighty totara trees 10 minutes inland - and the unique Cliffside Glamping & Events Venue further along the beachfront clifftops.

The Cliffside Coastal Tents are located 10 minutes by golf cart from the Castaways Resort, giving couples a chance to instantly unwind in a truly restful and romantic spot. A gourmet self-cook dinner and breakfast can be added to the package, so if you choose this option all you need to think about is getting yourself there - the rest is taken care of.

The Castaways Resort offers, a tranquil day spa, beautiful restaurant - Agave, loads of adventure activities - which can all be booked directly through Castaways Resort.

These specially designed tents have everything you need. Although completely off-grid, solar power produces electricity for lighting, stereo, even an espresso machine and refrigerator. So bring your own food to self-cater, or add the full catering package for the ultimate in 5-star glamping.

  • Things To Do

    You can completely unplug and reconnect at Cliffside Coastal Tents. Read, relax, soak in the outdoor tub, or lounge in the hammock. Cosy up in bed with a good book and listen to the sound of the surf.

    Enjoy the amazing views and changing light on the ocean from wherever you are - the bed, the bath or the hammock! If you can tear yourself away, go for a stroll on the property, either on the farm, or down to the beach.

    Castaways offer a range of activities, such as archery and clay target shooting, that you can book directly with Castaways once you've made your booking. You can also book into Bersantai (Castaways day) for a hot stone massage or one of the many other tempting treatments available. Once you've made your booking just contact Castaways directly to book your treatment. 

  • Your Hosts

    Glam Camping at Castaways is set on the stunning cliff tops above Karioitahi Beach, overlooking the Tasman Sea just 50mins from Auckland airport.

    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 was developed by Gavin and Raewyn Shine and expanded
    to include 25 chalets and studio units, a day spa, a beautiful restaurant, and loads of adventure activities. KP's now one of the most popular wedding, conference, and glamping destinations in the Greater Auckland region.

    In 2017 Castaways was sold to Marsden Group by which it is run and owned. However, Glam Camping At Castaways remains a small family-owned business, which is run and owned by sisters Serena and Jasmine Shine. Serena and Jasmine are enthusiastic glam campers and are inspired to create unique glamping experiences for guests to truly relax and unwind. Serena and Jasmine have extended the couple’s experiences to a Glam Camping Village where they host exclusive events.

    The weather was very stormy when we stayed, but we weren't put off at all. Sitting in a hot tub in the middle of a stormy night was still relaxing. I'd come back anytime of the year, value for every cent.

    Glam camping at Castaways was amazing! We spent one night here as a break after our wedding, and it was everything we could have hoped for - a completely remote and private setting to unwind and slow down. The food provided was beautiful, and there was plenty of it too. Highly recommend!

    If you're looking for a true couples' getaway that is different and a bit more adventurous, this is it! Lovely views, private, secluded. I booked a couples' getaway package, and everything we needed was provided. A great drive just out of Auckland, beautiful black sand beach, and you can drive on the beach (there is a small waterfall walking distance just up the beach). My wife loved it, worth it. Spa is a must too!
