Treat your team, colleagues or delegates and host your next conference, board planning session or corporate retreat at Flaxmill. We offer a unique, relaxing environment within a 2.5 hour drive from Auckland, Hamilton or Tauranga. 

With only birdcalls and lapping waves to distract you, our tranquil setting near Cooks Beach on the Coromandel Peninsula is an ideal place for strategic planning and clear thinking. Our large grounds provide ample space for team building activities.

Flaxmill offers flexible venue and accommodation packages for groups of 4 to 50 (depending on your required bed configurations) and are one of few such providers in the local Mercury Bay area.

Guests stay in our superior apartment-style Accommodation and enjoy modern conference faciities in our Function Centre. For attendees who are wheelchair users or have reduced mobility, 2 of our 3-Bedroom Houses offer Accessible Accommodation.

Our location is convenient to many off-site team building activities and we can give you some ideas and information that might best suit your group - from low cost options of digging a spa pool at Hot Water Beach or enjoying the Cathedral Cove coastal walkway to paid boat trips and fishing charters, kayaking, snorkelling, a round of golf or local craft beer and wine tasting. See our Things To Do section.

Here's a couple of testimonials from people who have used Flaxmill for business purposes.

"50 people enjoyed an amazing weekend at Flaxmill for a Business Retreat/Conference. Each house is so welcoming, with beautiful decor, lovely outlook, set amongst manicured grounds. The houses have 3 double rooms (comfortable beds!) and 2 bathrooms, gourmet kitchen, gas fireplaces and extensive decks. The Conference area is also tastefully furnished and well equipped for purpose. It was warm and comfortable. The 'camp' kitchen is well equipped, and we were well able to satisfy the needs of our 50 guests, nice crockery, glassware etc. The host/managers were most helpful and we had an amazing time. This is the second year we have held our event there and would recommend it as an outstanding location." - Coralie (May 2018)

"What a beautiful spot for our team planning retreat. We stayed in three of your houses, and felt instantly 'at home'. The picturesque surroundings were just perfect for allowing us all to slow down, and start thinking. Such gracious and thoughtful hospitality, too - everyone wanting to go the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect - and it was!" - Fiona
