Drifting Sands is a Beachfront Retreat located in Hokitika on the untamed West Coast of New Zealand. Nestled on the beach and flanked by the grand Southern Alps, here you can experience both in such close proximity.

Vacationer, explorer or avid traveller, we are your home away from home with a fabulous beachfront to relax and unwind. A perfect base for your west coast adventures with amazing beds, an infinity beach garden and a cosy fire.

The space
Nestled on the beach and flanked by the grand Southern Alps, here you can experience both in such close proximity. Offering an unrivalled friendly welcome and 'home away from home' experience we are just a five minute walk from the town centre. We share all our favourite spots and tips for a bespoke tailored time while visiting our cool little town. We pride ourselves on our quality 1350TC linens, hotel grade mattresses, goosedown pillows and down duvets ensuring a sumptuous and well rested sleep.

Dine at one of our recommended restaurants or prepare a banquet for your family in our fully equipped kitchen.  Relax by the fire in our cosy lounge or chill out in the private beach garden with a good book listening to the roar of the crashing waves just metres away.

The sunset on our front lawn will take your breath away as it lights up the sky and sets slowly into the Tasman Sea. After dark stroll to the glow worm dell, light a bonfire in the fire pit or sink into our stargazing hot tub under the milky way.

You will understand why one night is never enough. Leave fully rested, rejuvenated and fuelled for your onward adventures. Your satisfaction is at the heart of our every offering...

This is Drifting Sands.
