Orakei has an amazing elevated landform surrounded by water. Satori sits on the edge of its western slopes adjoining Awarua Reserve with an outlook across Orakei Basin and Hobson Bay to the city and Sky Tower beyond.
This established residential suburb features some of Auckland’s most desirable real estate in and around Paratai Drive, and is renowned for its safe leafy streets, beautiful beach and incredible views.
The area is steeped in history with Maori settlement dating back centuries. The local Orakei Marae at Takaparawhau (Bastion Point) continues to be the cultural heart of Ngati Whatua Orakei.
Orakei is a short drive from the CBD along picturesque Tamaki Drive. There are bus stops nearby on Grace Street and Coates Avenue, and the Orakei Train Station is just down the hill – making it an easy commute on public transport.
Some of Auckland’s top private schools are just across the bay including St Kentigern’s, Baradene College and Kings School. Orakei School is located on Grace Street, and Selwyn College is 5 minutes’ drive along Kepa Road.
