Driftsand Boutique Accommodation has five rooms situated directly anew-interior-dotterel-accomm-pagecross the road from the beautiful Ohope Beach.

The recent renovations and refurbishment have been well received by our guests. Once again our thanks to stylist Erena Te Paa.

We have also renamed our rooms from the standard 1 through 5 to some of our wonderful native local birds. During the winter months we encourage you to book a night walk through the Ohope Scenic reserve to hear, and may be see some of the local kiwi.

The Kingfisher and Dotterel rooms take pride of place with expansive unrestricted views across the beach to White Island on the horizon, New Zealand’s only active marine volcano, to the East Cape, and beyond. From the living area, you can watch the sunset, and enjoy the stunning views of the Eastern Bay of Plenty.


The Bellbird room is our largest room just 50 steps from the waves and is a great family room.

The Rear Studio Units are now known as the Tui Room and Morepork Room. With new luxury King beds and sumptuous bathrooms, equipped with conveniences one normally expects in a luxury hotel they are a real statement in style.

As a sign of respect to the wonderful environment we operate in we use only the eco.logic range of bathroom amenities that are packaged in 100% recycled plastics made right here in New Zealand, and are certified as fair trade. Our Bed linen is from Alsco’s Platinum Service that entails quality sheeting with a higher thread count and a plush jacquard finish, providing a luxurious look and feel.

We look forward to seeing you here at Driftsand. Rest | Relax | Rewind
