About Omana Luxury Villa

Waiheke Island Maps image

In Travel + Leisure magazine's ‘Best Island in the World' category, Waiheke was named in fifth place – beating top destinations like Mauritius, the Galapagos Islands, and the Greek Island of Paros.

Waiheke Island is an incredible destination that lies in the Hauraki Gulf of New Zealand. It is a true hidden gem, allowing visitors to relish the island's natural beauty and soak up the sun.

What sets the island apart from other destinations is its stunning white-sand beaches, crystal-clear waters, and breathtaking scenery. It is the most accessible island in the gulf, with regular passenger and car-ferry services and a helicopter operator based on the island.
Waiheke has become known as New Zealand's "island of wine," home to a dedicated group of winegrowers who have successfully matched the maritime climate and ancient soil structures to select classical grape varieties to produce red and white wines with distinctive varietal character.
The Island has a relaxed atmosphere, and friendly locals are among the most appealing aspects of visiting Waiheke Island. Beyond art, Waiheke Island offers a wide range of outdoor activities, including hiking, kayaking, and fishing. Whether you seek a tranquil retreat or an action-packed adventure, Waiheke Island caters to every traveller's desires.
The neighbourhood around Omana Luxury Villa offers a diverse range of experiences, from relaxation to adventure, making it a perfect destination for travellers seeking a memorable getaway.

At your stay, you'll be able to enjoy stunning forest and sea views and catch glimpses of native birds and other wildlife. Whether you're looking to replenish, spend quality time with your loved one, or simply escape the hustle of daily life, our villas offer the perfect retreat.

Highly regarded New Zealand architect Pete Bossley was commissioned to design the villas to the highest standards of sustainability. Building products are all environmentally certified and bought locally where possible. Everyone involved in this project was hand-picked for both the quality and detail of their work as well as their passion for working in harmony with nature.

Co-owner Silmara Scholtz has personally led the design of all interiors with her passionate Brazilian heart – and with an inherent sense of style and flair. Bespoke furnishings have been hand-picked for each luxury villa, with no detail overlooked. Even the beds have been manufactured to her exacting standards.

In fact, every decision since Silmara and her husband, Cobus, purchased the property has been for the good of the earth as well as the eye. They have significantly invested in ensuring the Omana forest can prosper, ridding it of exotics, weeds and pests and developing a programme of native planting to create a more welcoming thriving environment for wildlife. This effort has already increased the bird life; the tuis are back!

For couples in pursuit of rekindled love, Omana is your haven on the enchanting Waiheke Island. Our luxurious villas provide an idyllic setting to reconnect, offering a sanctuary of tranquillity and intimacy.

Nestled amidst nature's beauty, our villas are more than just accommodations; they are the epitome of unwinding together.

Our Story

When Cobus and Silmara Scholtz first stepped onto the land now known as Omana Luxury Villa, neither spoke. The late afternoon sun cast a golden light across the humming earth.

Without exchanging words, both knew this was the energy they’d been searching for; this was exactly where they should be.


Nestled on three hectares of lush land on Waiheke Island lies a picturesque oasis with a forest of ancient trees that seamlessly link land and sea, cascading down to a serene crescent-shaped private beach.
