About Kiwi Paka Waitomo

Waitomo Kiwi PakaLess then 2 minutes walk is Kiwi Paka, Curly & Crusty’s Recommended place to stay in the heart of the Waitomo village. Green and spacious, Kiwi Paka Waitomo is a special experience. When it opened in 2002, people wanted to stay and pizzas were flying out the door before complex had officially opened. Everyone loved the special feeling the place had. In 2009 Crusty and Curly decided on a new venture and took over Kiwi Paka. They are good hosts at both the Curlys Bar and at Kiwi Paka. Crusty is Passionate about Waitomo, his Dad was one of the founders of Tourism in Waitomo and key to its success. Crusty continues that legacy. Curly has been in the district for over 20 years and knows all the locals likes and dislikes. He is a true Waitomo character, warm and hospitable.
