Mohua Motels

Takaka, Tasman

Ken and Steve, the new owners of Mohua Motels, would like to welcome all Gaystay travellers to Golden Bay.

We chose Golden Bay partly because it is one of the most gay-friendly places we have ever been and encourage other gay travellers from around the world to come and visit.  Whether you are into mountain biking, stunning scenery, beaches, kayaking, tramping (all forms!) or fine dining we encourage you to take a closer look at Golden Bay!

We pride ourselves on winning the award for tripadvisor certificate of excellence, three years in a row. We love to share our local knowledge of the different places to explore in Golden Bay to help guests get the most of their time visiting Golden Bay whether here for business or leisure. We are the largest motel complex in Golden Bay so are perfect for group/bus tours.

Abel Tasman National Park and Kahurangi National Park, two fantastic locations in the Golden Bay region. Mohua Motels is ideally situated in-between both Parks. We are booking Agents for Farewell Spit Eco Tours and Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle.


Fifteen units are on the ground floor with 5 studio units (two with spa baths) on the upper level. All units provide you with the comfort of a warm spacious lounge with single, queen, king or super-king bed options.

Visitor Reviews

Takaka is a lovely township with individual shops and a wealth of quality eateries. Ken and Steve offer first class accommodation at a reasonable rate. Quality linen on a huge bed, beautiful view of the Takaka hills and walking distance to all facilities. Ideal base for exploring Golden Bay. Woke up very relaxed and refreshed, ready to explore. Thank you, we'll be back. :)
