Wildernest specialises in the creation of pop-up boutique accommodation, custom-made eateries, bars and parties. 

In 2011, Hayden & Anita started their exciting NZ-owned business adventure with Wildernest, their ambition to create magical experiences using New Zealand's nature as a backdrop. After their first event, a festival, they came out with rave reviews which quickly led to the pair creating heavenly & luxurious campsites for private holidays, weddings and crafting spectacular pop-up hotels for the corporate market.  

Now the couple not only creates luxurious glamping getaways, they have handcrafted a large selection of reclaimed wood furniture for hire plus they specialise in creating pop-up eateries and bars for events. Not to mention you can also purchase your own Wildernest Bell Tent.  After many years experiencing all types of NZ weather, the pair have perfected the Bell Tent for NZ weather conditions, a tent they are so confident about, they are happy to put their name to it. To meet Hayden and Anita, take a look at their creations in their videos here and their portfolio of work here.

From conception to completion and with no detail spared, Wildernest will plan and create your experience set amongst New Zealand’s most stunning scenery. 

We accommodate festival guests in a custom-planned ‘Glamping’ village, can create a perfectly styled pop-up hotel and party for your wedding, craft an unforgettable team-building getaway for your colleagues and clients, or deliver an exceptionally luxurious private holiday for you and your dream date - the experienced team at Wildernest will forge the perfect event tailored to your individual needs.  

With imagination and flair, the Wildernest team creates a harmonious mix of nature’s backdrop with comfortable surroundings so you can relax, enjoy yourself, and know every detail will be taken care of.
