CATERING & BEVERAGES
Kauri Springs Lodge offers in-house catering by some of Waiheke Island's best chefs and caterers, so you'll enjoy a quality culinary experience during your stay.
We work with three outstanding caterers to ensure an excellent range and selection. From canapes to banquets through to daily menus for breakfast, lunch, morning and afternoon teas, dinner and sweet treats, you will have a delicious variety of dining and meal options to choose from.
We recommend these caterers who are familiar with the Lodge and its operations, and offer excellent service and value for money for small to large groups.
Self-catering, fully catered or a combination of both, it’s up to you.
We welcome guests to make use of our kitchen facilities if they wish to self-cater. There will be service fee charged for self-catering to cover the cost of operating the kitchen. Guests can also choose to cook with the barbecue at each house.
The local Countdown has a large range of food and beverages on offer, and there is a number of speciality food stores on the island including Raw, The Island Grocer, etc. There is a local bakery, Francos - located just two minutes drive from the lodge - that has a range of excellent breads, pastries, cakes and fill rolls. The croissants and danishes are not to be missed, and be sure to order early to ensure you secure your supply.
Our liquor policy
Kauri Springs Lodge does not carry a license to sell or supply alcohol on our premises.
Guests are advised that they need to bring their own beverages, including alcoholic beverages, if they intend to consume them during their stay. We encourage our guests to use responsible practices and behaviour with respect to the supply and consumption of alcohol while staying at the Lodge.
Kauri Springs Lodge is a BYO venue for alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Guests need to supply all their own wine, beer and other drinks, as well as ice. Plus, we do not charge corkage fees.
As Waiheke Island has a reputation for producing some of New Zealand’s finest wines, we recommend you sample a few before leaving our shores. You can order alcohol from the Waiheke Wine Centre, an excellent wine shop with a large and quality selection of beverages. These can be delivered directly to Kauri Springs Lodge in time for your event and charged back to your credit card afterwards less any returned beverages not consumed.
