Made up of two separate islands, New Zealand is known as the “Paradise of the Pacific.” New Zealand is a beautiful country adorned with mountains, beaches, and plains, making it incredibly biodiverse despite its relatively small size. There are only a handful of small cities in the country, which makes New Zealand a pretty sparse country with plenty of nature to see and explore. New Zealand has tons of natural beauty in its landscape so why not consider staying in a yurt while you’re here? It’s a little more upscale than a tent, but still offers guests the chance to immerse in the outdoors. Read on and check out these top yurts in New Zealand.
This yurt accommodation in New Zealand offers all the fun of glamping with the outdoorsy excitement of staying in a yurt. The yurt is open all year round with heating options in the winter, as well as cooling in the summer. The sights from the yurt are luxurious and offer a calming experience with garden views. The yurt provides a large and comfy king-size bed complete with linens and pillows. Guests can enjoy the outdoor tub that’s right next to the yurt, as well as proximity to town and included amenities such as an Apple TV, USB ports, a coffee maker, and bikes available on request.

Known as “The Chocolate Yurt,” this accommodation is a perfect place to stay in the Motueka Valley region. The yurt is located in an “eco-village” just 15 minutes away from the valley. Despite being in an eco-village, the yurt is fully loaded with some pretty nice amenities including Wi-Fi access and kitchen access. It is also connected with electricity while still being off the grid. There’s a wood-burning fireplace to warm up during the colder months and there is a free parking space included.

Located on the private property of the owner, the yurt is pretty secluded in the garden area of the home. The yurt comes with a skylight so you can check out the stars at night while resting cozily in the queen-size bed. The yurt also has handwoven carpets on the floor and furnished with hand-painted wooden furniture. Amenities such as Wi-Fi access are also included, though guests should be aware that the kitchen, toilet, and shower are not directly attached to the accommodation.

With the Tasman Sea on one side and Mount Karioi on the other, this yurt offers the chance to stay outdoors in a beautiful setting near the local beaches. While electricity in the yurt is available, only the fridge, lights, and water pump are electrically powered. During the colder months, there is a gas-powered water heater, as well as a stove. The kitchen area is located off the yurt’s immediate area, but there is a barbecue on-site and guests can borrow kayaks if they wish to cruise around the water.
