Welcoming all


River Haven at Ngatimoti is a true jewel amidst the spectacular scenery of New Zealand’s South Island. The Motueka Valley offers not only beautiful mountains, glorious rivers and rolling landscapes we also have the best driving roads anywhere in the world!! Thats why River Haven is now a true Motor Haven.

Our vineyard setting offers ample parking and large areas for car displays. Our events team delight in personalising the Venue according to your needs. Add bespoke menus featuring locally sourced ingredients, a great beverage selection and award winning wines and your visit to our “Motor Haven” will be truly memorable. Just ask the dozens of motor clubs and hundreds of car enthusiasts who’ve already enjoyed River Haven hospitality.

The extra mile

Just like to thank you for your hospitality on Sunday, and also for going the extra mile getting the owner to come say a few words. Much appreciated.

The Porsche Club

I wish to express my sincere thanks for the way you received our Porsche Club Members for lunch at River Haven yesterday. I was particularly impressed with the extra effort you had gone to with the video of Porsche cars and the appropriate magazine on the table. It was a very pleasant place to spent an afternoon with people sharing the same passion. Thank you.
