Named after the native rock lily planted in our native gardens, the Rengarenga Room at Plume Restaurant can comfortably accommodate and seat up to 80 people. At 50 sq. metres it is ideal for medium to large sized conferences, board meetings, product launches, and more. With plenty of natural light, it has its own private entrance, courtyard, and gardens. The room overlooks the serene and idyllic landscape of pastoral Matakana.
The Wine Library
Productivity is top of mind, with the adjoining Wine Library available an inner sanctum, secretariat room, or break-out space for up to 16 people. The Wine Library is a private, quiet area for matters confidential, yet only yards away from our restaurant facilities, when it’s time to break for lunch, drinks, or an evening meal. This room features exquisite décor, a cosy fireplace, and a fine collection of some of the world’s top French crux wines, like Cheval Blanc, Mouton Rothschild, and Margaux, to name a few – and a part of the owners’ fine collection of some of the world’s top French vintages..
Frequently Asked Questions
What Makes a Good Business Conference Venue?
There are five key factors to consider when choosing a conference venue in Auckland – and Plume ticks all the boxes!

- Food and Drink. Our award-winning head chef, BJ Sebastian, is able to work alongside you to create the perfect menu for your conference.
