Here at Kiwi Holiday Parks and Accommodation (KHPA) we’re constantly flaunting the plethora of amazing things to see and do in New Zealand. So much so that it’s easy to overlook our own services and what we provide holidaymakers and overnighters at each of our parks. Here are seven points that set us apart from the rest.
- Location, Location, Location.
It’s the old real estate adage of location, location, location. We too believe location is key to enjoyment which is why we’ve got 41 parks in the best holiday locations around NZ. We have something for everyone: whether you want to hear the calming sound of waves lapping against the shore, to be surrounded by charming native New Zealand bush, or to feel the buzz of the city centre.
- The choice to ‘stay your way’.
We pride ourselves on having all bases covered when it comes to different types of accommodation. This is precisely why we changed our name to Kiwi Holiday Parks and Accommodation. We’re not just a network of camping grounds as some may suspect. Instead, we offer everything from a site where you can pitch your tent, to self-contained kitchen cabins that sleep up to six and feature everything you need to cook the kind of meal you would at home. We also provide motel units with their own bathrooms, powered sites with connections for campervans and caravans, and even hostels and lodges suitable for housing larger groups. We make it easy to ‘stay your way’.
- More amenities, facilities and activities than you can shake a stick at.
Our KHPA members believe that good accommodation shouldn’t just be a place to lay your head at night – it should be as much a part of the holiday experience as the places of interest you visit on your journey. As such we make sure that there is plenty to do for the whole family without having to leave the park.
Dinner is sorted regardless of your accommodation type with barbecues and other onsite cooking facilities available. The kids are kept fit and occupied with playgrounds, swimming pools, games rooms, holiday programmes, farm shows and animal feeding; while adults can relax with hot tubs, TV rooms, complimentary bikes and breweries and restaurants.
- Your wallet will love our Kiwi Card
In the same way we like to provide accommodation options for all tastes, we like to cater to all budgets too. We achieve this through our different accommodation types and with our Kiwi Membership Discount Card. Valid throughout the country for two years, the card entitles you to great savings on accommodation, ferry tickets, car and campervan rental, tours, adventure activities, museums and food. Head here to learn about the more than 65 discounts involved.
- Our parks are social hubs
With so much going on at our 41 parks around the country, visitors often report a social feel during their stay, almost like they’re part of a small community. Kids enjoying meeting new friends from different parts of the country and adults often end up meeting interesting people from around the world. In the evening you’ll see complete strangers chatting about the wonderful adventures they’ve had that day and discussing what they’ve got planned for tomorrow. It’s a great way to sample what’s going on in the area before you even leave the gate!
- We’re as safe as houses
KHPA is a safe, secure and affordable alternative to freedom camping. We have security gates and systems, lighting and managers or owners onsite at all times. This gives you peace of mind and makes for a better night’s sleep as you don’t have to worry about your gear or your own safety.
- Friendly places and faces at every park
Most of our parks are owner-operated so the staff you deal with have a vested interest in your custom. They enjoy what they do and they like nothing more than to offer friendly advice and suggestions about local activities, where to go next, or simply how to get more out of your holiday. So, don’t be afraid to speak up and ask questions if you’re unsure.
