Couples and guests often choose to arrive a day or two before the wedding, or stay afterwards, to relax and reacquaint themselves with friends and family. Ask us to arrange a simple gathering in the bar the night before the celebration, the wedding and reception on the day and a brunch on the following morning, to swap stories and reminisce.

Our fully licensed restaurant offers sumptuous menus that highlight the delicious local produce and world acclaimed Marlborough wines. We will be delighted to work with you to create a special theme and menu for your day.

I feel almost conflicted writing this review as I want to keep this place my little secret but it is too good to not share. We stayed here for 5 nights for our wedding so our expectations were already high. However, Ed and his team went above and beyond our wildest dreams and created magic for us at this paradise on earth. The highlights: EVERYTHING! The lowlights: Eventually we had to leave, but are already planning our next trip back!!

Had an awesome time at Punga for our friends' wedding. The scenery is amazing and the venue facilities and staff are fantastic. The jetty bar/cafe is a great spot for lunch and a drink, and the restaurant at the top of the resort boasts great views and amazing food.

This place is an absolute paradise. Gorgeous views from every angle and great amenities including two restaurants, kayaking and paddle board gear, pool and hot spas. The wedding we attended was seamless and all the staff were wonderful and friendly. Staff also helped with contacting other services (eg the local ferry) to help us out. We stayed in one of the A-frames, a comfortable one bedroom plus bathroom space with direct views of the sounds from the bed. Highly recommend.
