Karaka Tree Motel was so named for the 120 year old karaka tree standing at the rear of the property. It was originally planted to mark the junction of the old Maori trails leading to the East Coast and Napier. The motel is situated next to the Waipahihi marae and the Onekeneke thermal creek which powers our spas, offering guests the same comfort and peace as in years past.
