Our Location / Contact
Bell Lodge is located in Tauranga, a city in The Bay of Plenty region in the North Island of New Zealand. It’s situated around the body of water of the same name. The bay was named by Captain James Cook after he noticed the abundant food supplies at several Māori villages there, in stark contrast to the earlier observations he had made in Poverty Bay.
Tauranga is one of New Zealand’s main centres for business, international trade, culture, fashion and horticultural science and is an ideal base for visitors. You can find out more here and check out our list of things to do in the area.
We are ideally located close to exit and entry points for SH2 to and from Auckland. We offer a range of facilities at Bell Lodge to make your stay more comfortable. A map is available on our Contact Page.
