初露民宿 KORU Hostel 

初露的名稱是來自於紐西蘭的國家植物:銀蕨(Koru, Fern),象徵著新生命、成長、力量與和平,也稱之為初露。 
銀蕨的葉子背面在夜晚中會反射星月的光輝,照亮穿越森林的路徑, 指引紐西蘭的原住民戰士(毛利人)回家的路。 
  
Koru is a meaningful word in the Maori culture. A symbol of new life, growth, strength and peace. Most of their tattos got the koru, and koru is on the Maori flag. It's also a part of nature and is symbolize by the silver fern, one of the New Zealand icon.

The back of the silver fern leaves reflects the moonlight and the stars. They will show the path through the forest guidelines for aboriginal soldiers in New Zealand (Maori) on the way home.


紐西蘭的淵源 


在2008年的夏天,民宿主人和友人放下一切,一起去打工渡假,踏上這個都是羊的國家,紐西蘭。 
湛藍的天空,筆直的海岸線,和藹可親的人民,讓我們徹徹底底的愛上這個國家。 
住過很多間不一樣的民宿,其中有幾間民宿,雖然稱不上是完美,但悠哉的環境和親切的服務態度,很讓人難忘。 

2010年回到台灣之後,雖然在紐西蘭一年半的點點滴滴都好像一場夢,但墾丁的天空、沙灘和環境,還是一直勾起那些在紐西蘭的美好回憶,因而勾勒出初露民宿的草圖出來。 

2012年,初露民宿的誕生,誠摯的希望這樣的環境能讓所有的旅客在這裡停留時,有像家一般的歸屬感。


~我們也會盡最大的努力維持著,並期待有更多不一樣的火花。~



The host of Koru hostel and friend went working holiday to New Zealand in 2008, they enjoyed the blue sky, straight coastline, nice people, and fall in love with this country. During their stay, they've lived in many B&B, and adapt to this new way of life. Comfortable environment  lovely people and good weather are their daily life.

After a year and half travelling around Aotearoa( New Zealand in Maori), they back to Taiwan, with a feeling of sadness to leave this country, and happiness to see family and friends. Then they found in Kenting the places who remind them their journey. Sunny day, hiking in mountain, have a walk on the beach. 

So here the story of Koru start in Kenting, a place of sharing stories between countries. And as the Maori say, when you offer a koru pendant, you share a part of your spirit as well. So, this place is our Koru, and looking forward to share an amazing moment together.
