September Newsletter 2017 Hello Spring!

September 2017

Welcome Spring! It’s the wonderful time of the year when the trees begin to blossom and the streets look lively and green again. We can’t wait until temperatures start going up, and the sun starts shining all day!
The increase in domestic and international tourism continues to bring visitors to our region over the winter months, and in particular the Nelson/Tasman region has seen steady and consistent growth. This is a very exciting time for us and reinforces that as a destination, our focus continues to be on service, staff, assets, infrastructure and partnerships.
Despite the welcomed international tourism growth, New Zealand families continue to be the core part of our summer business. Our vision is simply that Kaiteriteri will be the best coastal outdoor recreation destination in New Zealand.
One of our current projects is the refresh of the “Shoreline Restaurant,” which as well as undergoing refurbishment is also in line for new branding. Watch out for details in our next newsletter due in early December, and we look forward to seeing you in there over summer.
Work continues on upgrading and extending the Kaiteriteri Mountain Bike Park. Cycling is a platform to help New Zealand’s recreational tourism growth and Kaiteriteri is linked to this through the Park and also the Great Taste Trail. This is a whole new reason to visit Kaiteriteri, so bring your bikes and start exploring.
Gone Burgers continues to operate as before with some of the best burgers in the region, but now from the courtyard. We are also doubling the number of coffee machines on the Reserve and adding a coffee shack in the camp grounds to increase our coffee service.
We trust that by now all regular guests have used their “rebook” privilege to confirm their holiday plans for the 2017/18 season. Please refer to the respective policy on rebooking privileges.
Most of you will have done your booking when you departed last season, and with this in mind we now confirm our 2017/18 rates which take effect from the 1st October 2017.
The daily rate for adults is increasing from $21 to $23 per night, and children from $10 to $12 per night.
However as a one off special deal, we would like to offer all guests with existing bookings arriving on or before the 28th February 2018, the chance to take advantage of last season’s rates.
To do this you will need to pay your booking charges by 31st October 2017. This date also applies to additional guests, so if you normally pay these during your stay, the new rates will apply.
If you need a copy of your booking confirmation or need any help with the amount you need to pay,
please do not hesitate to contact our office staff.
These fees were last increased in 2015, and still represent excellent value. Kaiteriteri is the gateway
to the world renowned Abel Tasman National Park and famous for its golden sand, turquoise water
and four seasons of recreation and events with accommodation and dining to suit everyone. It is the
perfect place to visit throughout the year, and is the envy of many people who struggle to get a
booking over our busy times.
We are also trying to streamline the check in / arrival process, and to avoid delays we are
encouraging guests to pay prior to arrival. This prepayment means that if you know your site
number, you can proceed directly to the site and then advise us you have arrived prior to office
Please remember that if your booked number of guests differs from your actual paid number of
guests at any time during your stay, you must advise the office immediately and pay for these
guests. This will be at the new rate.
Our aim is to continually improve your experience at Kaiteriteri, while maintaining the same relaxed
feel and friendly atmosphere it has always had. Our staff always have the time for a chat and are
only too happy to be of assistance in any way we can.
We have also updated our terms and conditions along with our Reserve code of conduct, and these
are attached. Please take time to familiarise yourself with these.
We look forward to seeing you soon!!
