Orama Oasis

Orama Oasis is a large accommodation facility in the north of Great Barrier Island, facing west in beautiful Karaka Bay.

Awesome Dark Sky tours, beautiful sunsets and fun. Come and stay in one of our attractive self-contained motel units or a beach cottage right on the shore. The Lodge has 18 guest rooms to choose from with either en-suite or shared facilities. We also have grassy lawns and private coves for campers, and simple hillside cabins for walking groups and trampers.

Relax on a verandah to take in the beautiful view and sunsets of Port Abercrombie, or the exceptional Dark Sky. Why not make a plan to join one of our Dark Sky tours with our resident Dark Sky Ambassadors?

As well as accommodation for over 100 people, Orama Oasis has a large dining room and full commercial kitchen to cater for your special event. Either meet our Orama Oasis team and other guests at mealtimes in the dining room, let us help you plan meals with our hampers in your unit, or cater completely for yourself.

If you want to plan a group retreat or team building time, we have lecture rooms and an attractive Lodge lounge. In the event of wet weather there is a large indoor sports area and break-out spaces.
