Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. I appreciated the effort you went to to set up our sleeping quarters, provide clean bathrooms (the warm showers were wonderful!) and nourishing, delicious and plentiful supply.
The marae was a perfect venue for the learning our group did on cultural inclusion in education.

Nga mihi, Nga mihi


Thank you for the wonderful full-immersion into the tikanga of Tapu Te Ranga marae. The warmth and caring shown by all really helped me gain a fuller picture of being inclusive in my profession as a teacher.

Once again, thank you for the amazing location, kai and gentleness of your marae.


Thank you for sharing the wonderful environment you have created. It is a truly special place to be. Thanks for your manaakitanga.


I had an amazing time at the marae. The food was great. The ambience restful and welcoming.


Dear friends at tapu te ranga,
I was staying at your beautiful marae the night of the big earthquake on 14 November 2016. While the shake was long and frightening, I never once felt that the building was unsafe. I was with friends and felt secure, in a place of peace. I can't think of a place I would rather have been that night.
Thank you!


We spent 3 lovely days with Halima and her family working with a group of 20 on their leadership journey.
The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious and all staff helpful and considerate.

We received warm hospitality throughout our weekend-long hui for the Future Leaders rangatahi. Helima put on amazing kai for us all weekend to keep our energy levels up. We were honoured to have Pare and Bruce share some of the stories of the marae which make is so special. We even climbed up the maunga on Sunday morning. Thanks for having us at such a great venue!
