The glamping experience at Fossil Bay

Glamping - short for 'glamorous camping' - is the perfect marriage between staying in the great outdoors and enjoying hotel-style amenities. No need to pitch a tent, roll out a sleeping bag, or endure freezing cold showers just to experience the beauty of bush and wildlife. At Fossil Bay Lodge, every glamp is outfitted with convenience in mind to bring you the best of nature and comfort at once. Each bell tent includes:

  • Queen-size (or larger) memory foam bed, with bedding and towels provided
  • Fully covered sisal mat flooring
  • Indoor seating and tables
  • Private outdoor area with table and chairs
  • Private 'wine barrel' bathroom with hot water, rain-head shower, sink, and camping toilet
  • Battery-powered lanterns and battery charging packs for mobile phones/devices

A large shared lounge/kitchen is also available to all with a full kitchen, dedicated fridge space for each guest, WiFi access, washing machine, and more.

Positioned on Waiheke Island's northwestern tip, Fossil Bay Lodge is only a short ways from Oneroa village and the Matiatia Ferry terminal yet is still far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of a much more rural property. Owhanake and Oneroa beaches are a quick walk away and several Te Ara Hura walking trails are right at our doorstep.

What our guests have to say

Fossil Bay Lodge glamping on Waiheke Island is our new favoured Waiheke getaway for when we don’t want to travel far, but we want to feel worlds away from city life. The Fossil Bay glamping experience allows you to unwind and relax and feel like you’ve shipped yourself away to a remote island, but doesn’t come with the pain and hassle of having to set up your own tent or cooking arrangements. LoveYaGuts Travel, February 2024
I cannot say enough about this place. [...] The grounds are a pleasure to hang out in. We spent many hours reading, writing, and taking pictures of ducks. Beautiful gardens which feel special to spend time in. The area is perfect for a quiet getaway that is conveniently located. It’s a 15 minute walk to town for groceries or any meals you need, but the lodge is removed enough that you are in a quiet place that you could relax on all day. [...] 10/10 for a thoughtful and relaxing getaway. Peter, guest in 2023
