A luxury lodge situated amongst breath-taking New Zealand landscape An intimate and unforgettable stay,
Stonefly is a luxury lodge in New Zealand's most idyllic region. Our four guest rooms come with everything from private ensuites to a spectacular view - thereâ€™s nothing like immersing yourself in the wilderness of the Abel Tasman and Nelson Lakes at Stonefly Lodge. Your hosts, John and Kate Kerr, have over 50 years combined tourism and hospitality experience and enjoy sharing their dream lodge with visitors wanting professional, personalised service and the ability to explore and experience a very special part of New Zealand.
Complete fly fishing and adventure packages tailored to suit every guest
Stonefly Lodge provides the luxurious accommodation that you would expect from a 5 star retreat in the heart of Motueka Valley, between three of New Zealand's major National Parks - Abel Tasman, Nelson Lakes and Kahurangi. A wide range of nearby world renowned trout rivers and streams let guests enjoy any kind of fly fishing experience; from gentle, flowing, crystal clear waters to those more challenging in the backcountry streams.
Uncover the Ultimate Fly Fishing Experience
Surrounded by spectacular scenery, you will be casting dry flies over big, wild trout in crystal clear mountain streams - and watching the fish react to your fly. These fish are not easy to catch, but the reward is likely to be the catch of a lifetime.
Endless Variety of Fishing Options
Poronui has 25 miles of fishing water and fishing options to suit any level of experience including beginners. Fish a new location every day and use the option of a dramatic helicopter fly-out to access remote trophy waters on neighbouring Maori land - where huge trout cautiously cruise in deep clear pools.
Activities for Non-Anglers
The property is an elegant sporting lodge and offers a range of outdoor pursuits including hunting, horse riding, Maori cultural experiences, sporting clays and field archery. Wine tasting and sightseeing tours can be organised on request. Or simply relax in this pristine backcountry haven with a massage, beauty treatments or a good book.
Explore the magic of Poronui for yourself.
