The pool - just one of the many reasons Katikati Naturist Park won the "Holiday Park" Tourism Industry award for 2008!

 Accommodation Overview 

Naturist accommodation in New Zealand falls into two main categories - private & club.

All the clubs are member owned, and thus voluntary organisations. Not all the clubs can always supply accommodation, but for different reasons: some require the production of an INF card to visit at all, others may waive that requirement for overseas guests. However, any club that might be able to offer at least an overnight stay is included in this list. (This means that unless they would normally have a caretaker on the grounds, prior arrangements must be made with the secretary.)

The private accommodation also takes two forms: Homestay and Resort. The homestays are just that: residences where the householder is happy to welcome Naturist guests. The term 'resort' means a commercial venture, offering full facilities and essentially open to all, 24/7. At present the venture best fitting that description is Katikati Naturist Park. The 'homestays' vary widely. Waitata Bay would probably sit at the top end of the market (as it has an 'official' beach on-site), with Wai-natur, near Blenhim; approaching resort status. Those venues listed as a 'place' usually indicate that it's just the owner's humble abode. If a venue offering accommodation has it's own website, a link to that is used; otherwise there is a local page on this website.
