Why stay at Amuri Villas

Amuri Villas

A trip to Hawke's Bay provides world-class walking trails, wineries, art deco architecture and so much more. With such a varied region it can be hard to decide on where to stay, and we suggest somewhere central, tranquil, and comfortable – here’s why Amuri Villas is a great option.

Centrally located

Amuri Villas is a country oasis just five minutes from Clive, smack bang in the middle of prime Hawke’s Bay destinations – it’s just 10 minutes’ drive to Napier, Hastings and Havelock North. One day you could be exploring Havelock North’s boutique shopping (with designer clothing shops and cafes galore – as well as a great little pub and restaurants), and the next you could take a guided walking tour in the art deco wonder of Napier, or else visit one of the many wonderful vineyards in the area for a very long lunch. Within five minutes you can be on one of the gentle and well-maintained Hawke’s Bay Cycle trails – perhaps cycling up beside the rocky coastline, or tootling along the river for a coffee or beverage at the lovely Puketapu country pub.

Small town

Clive itself is a classic rural Hawkes Bay town that’s easy to navigate and has all the basics that you need – whether that’s fresh bread from the bakery, or a bottle of good Hawke’s Bay red from the wine shop. You could grab some gourmet sausages from the local butcher to bring back to Amuri Villas, for throwing on the barbecue in your private suite.


Almost one kilometre off the main road and on a no-exit road, Amuri Villas is the epitome of tranquillity with birdsong and no hustle and bustle of traffic. You’ll be greeted by the enormous London plane tree at the gateway, and the English country gardens are packed with roses, peonies, lilies, irises, as well as native plantings of pittosporums and flaxes. At the back of these sprawling two-acre gardens, guests can gather nectarines, peaches, apricots, quince, mandarins, and many types of citrus.

Luxury suites

Inside the villas themselves you’ll get great views of the gardens but also experience the ultimate in comfort with the best quality beds and linens – something our guests rave about. You’ll love the privacy of being completely self-contained, and with each suite oriented to receive all day sun, it really is the ultimate getaway. With flat land and the ability to drive your car to the front door of each villa, it’s accessible for all.

As the owners of Amuri Villas we are long-time Hawke’s Bay locals, and very passionate about our region – so we’re always happy to help with advice on what to do during your stay. We look forward to having you to stay.
