Agrodome introduces the Pāmu PurePod

Jul 21, 2023

Amongst the farmland that is looked after by our Ngāi Tahu Tourism team at Agrodome, is a tiny glass hut that doubles as a great excuse for a romantic getaway or an adventurous escape.

This glass eco-cabin is known as the Pāmu PurePod and gives Agrodome’s manuhiri the chance to both enjoy a world-famous farm experience and a peaceful retreat amidst the stunning Rotorua region.

Essentially a glass eco-cabin, PurePods are designed to ensure that their occupants experience the best of nature whilst remaining sheltered in luxury.

The PurePod concept was developed from a deep love for nature combined with a desire to share New Zealand’s natural landscapes in a way that is memorable for their guests.

“We are over the moon to partner with Agrodome and Ngāi Tahu Tourism on our second North Island location. This expansion of our network creates a sought-after link for those wanting to ‘pod-hop’ throughout the country” says PurePod CEO Stephanie Hassall.

As part of the partnership with PurePod, Ngāi Tahu Tourism ensured that introducing the Pāmu PurePod to Agrodome would only have an effect of positivity on the environment.

The Pāmu PurePod has been created using sustainable energy and through using local water which is then returned to the local area. Conservation and reclamation of the natural environment is also close to the heart of PurePod, this shown through their partnership with businesses passionate about environmental sustainability.

The Agrodome team aim to use the commercial returns from their Pāmu PurePod to expand their conservation activities through the extension of nature covenants and the reduction of stock grazing sensitive areas.

“We see partnering with PurePod as another way we can connect manuhiri to our exciting and immersive farm and kiwi conservation experience” says David Blackmore, General Manager Agrodome.
