Accommodation

Kapa Haka accommodation enquiries for Te Matatini 2025 in New Plymouth

With many hotels/motels/holiday parks now fully booked in New Plymouth, Emere Wano and her team are working hard to ensure that all our kapa haka teams have accommodation.

 

There is still some marae accommodation available and we would like all enquiries for kapa haka accommodation to go directly to Emere, so that these enquiries are managed from one place.  We ask that enquiries are not made directly to the marae.

 

For those roopū who have already booked their accommodation, can you also contact Emere with the details of your accommodation and numbers.

 

Contact details for kapa haka accommodation is: accommodation@tematatini.co.nz.

We appreciate your patience and interest in participating in Te Matatini 2025. Stay tuned for further updates.
