Kawau Beach House
The recently renovated Beach House gets a solid five stars on TripAdvisor. Guests wax lyrical about the environment, service and food. Manager Katie Silcock and her partner, chef Zeyn Buksh have only been there four months, but they're certainly making their mark.
Despite being only in their twenties, the Waikato couple have clocked up impressive resumés. Their hospitality backgrounds include a stint together at London two-starred Michelin restaurant Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley (now just 'Marcus').
They love the lifestyle on the island. Katie says, "It's like living in paradise – you could be anywhere in the South Pacific!" Zeyn's looking forward to presenting their new summer gastronomy: a 5/5/5 option a la carte menu showcasing local seafood.
Kawau Beach House is sponsoring the top prize at Music in the Gardens 2016: a night in a Beachfront Suite with dinner and breakfast included.
