If you need a lot of space, Kauri Hall is perfect!
Kauri Hall is a conference venue or concert hall, seating up to 700 people theatre-style with staging and roll out carpet.
Designed also for basketball, volleyball, indoor soccer and games, roller skating, rockwall climbing and team-building activities.
Even if it’s pouring wet outside, the fun just keeps on going inside.
Situated on a hill overlooking our site, this picturesque wooden chapel is steeped in history. Step through the little steepled porchway, and you’ll be
transported back in time to New Zealand’s early pioneering days.
Built in 1899 and originally sited near Feilding, it has been a quiet retreat for many generations of worshippers. The name “Apiti” means Gorge, named after
the river landscape where the church originally stood.
In 1988 the chapel was re-sited to El Rancho and carefully restored. The original stained glass window has been removed and remains in Fielding and a new
window was commissioned, reflecting the unique Kapiti Coast seascape. The Church provides a beautiful setting for small wedding ceremonies.
Apiti Chapel seats approximately 60 people.
Once used as a fully functioning cafe, Founders Lounge has it's own disabled bathroom facility and large kitchen space.
The kitchen includes fridges, hot plates and an oven. There is also a wood burner to keep you toasty warm during the winter months.
There is a range of couches, seats and small and medium sized tables. These can be configured in whatever way best suits your requirements.
Founders Lounge is suitable for small groups of up to 30 people.
