Green light for $20m spa resort
Tuesday 23 March 2004
A $20 million spa resort has won resource consent and will be developed on 1.3ha of former citrus orchard land next to Pauanui's waterways.
By The LandlordThe three-level Orange Grove Spa will have 54 rooms, two restaurants seating 85 and 40 people, saunas, fitness centres, an indoor pool, a heated 25m lap-pool and eight treatment rooms.
Construction is expected to start in the next few months and it should open by the middle of next year.
Developer Rainer Hoehn – who founded the award-winning Puka Park Lodge and sold that in 2001 – is seeking investors to buy suites and have them managed by the resort. He has sold seven already.
The Orange Grove Spa bought the land off Hopper Developments for $1.2 million.
The development is the latest to be started on the Coromandel Peninsula with the $85 million Lakes Resort Pauanui – the brainchild of former Aucklanders Gary and Angie MacDougall – currently being built.
