Tucked away on its own in the bush this is the ideal hideaway yurt. Listen to the sounds of nature. Awaken to the chorus of native birds. Hidden away but less than 100m from the central hub of the garden. The accommodation is clean, comfortable, affordable and beautifully presented. Surrounded by lovely wild and tamed organic gardens.
The price is per person.. Okuti Gardenis good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).

The space
Sleep under the stars. Awaken to the sounds of bell birds, kereru and the gentle buzzing of the New Zealand bush. Exciting, unique and well presented accommodation available in either
