Waipuna Hotel and Conference Centre is one of New Zealand’s largest and most comprehensive conference facilities, and is only 15 minutes from Auckland’s citycentre and the international and domestic airports. Meaning ‘Spring of Water’ in Maori, Waipuna is set amongst 6.26 acres of beautiful parkland overlooking a picturesque saltwater lagoon. Guests enjoy the stunning, always-changing, view of the tidal lagoon and can enjoy walking or cycling the pathways around the lagoon. Waipuna prides itself on providing a warm welcome for all guests. Sometimes that welcome needs to be more than a friendly smile and good service, so for accessible customers, Waipuna provides facilities that will make any stay a comfortable one. Rooms are spacious and appropriately appointed and public areas are ramped in most places with easy gradients. Parking is accessible, plentiful and free. Waipuna is proud to channel its profits back into the local community, supporting initiatives such as local parks and playgrounds, sports fields, local education, historic place and conservation.
