Invest in a coastal paradise
By the quiet water’s edge on Hokianga Harbour you’ll find the welcoming Copthorne Hotel and Resort Hokianga.
With its scenic location and proximity to top tourist attractions, this four-star, Qualmarkrated hotel is the perfect coastal escape for city-weary travellers and a fantastic destination for adventureseeking tourists. It’s also a popular wedding venue with couples drawn to this romantic beachside setting in the ‘winterless north’. The hotel consists of 33 units in three buildings. With 12 rooms facing the harbour in one block, and the balance of 21 rooms with beach and garden views, this is a dream investment. With the beachfront rooms a short stroll from the shore and those with balconies offering magnificent views of the harbour and sand dunes, it’s hard to think of a more tranquil coastal retreat. With its white and pale wood accents and high vaulted ceilings, the attractive main building houses the popular Sands Bar and Briars Restaurant, plus quality conference facilities and the administrative block. Also part of the property are 10 popular luxury villas known as The Heads, which will form part of a management agreement between the current owner of the Copthorne Hotel and the new owner. Income from the accommodation will be split between the parties. Copthorne Hotel and Resort Hokianga has benefited greatly from becoming part of the Copthorne Hotels brand, operated by the Millennium Hotels in 2012. One of the most dynamic hotel companies, Millennium Hotels owns, asset manages, and operates more than 100 hotels across the world and New Zealand. This stunning retreat is perfectly situated to explore all that the Hokianga Harbour area has to offer, including forests, sand dunes and the sandbar. Horse treks, bicycle tours and fishing charters all draw adventure seekers to the area. Hokianga Harbour is also the ideal base from which to explore Omapere and Waipoua Forest, home to one of New Zealand’s best-known attractions, the ancient kauri tree Tane Mahuta. With tourist numbers breaking the 3 million mark, this is a once-ina-lifetime opportunity for wouldbe investors. Tourists pumped more than $930 million into the Northland economy in the year to April, a number that’s expected to keep rising. One of the sunny Northland’s bestkept secrets, the Copthorne Hotel & Resort at 335 State Highway 12, Opononi, offers a substantial accommodation base and meaningful food, beverage and conference facilities, making this hotel a key player in the area.
