Luxury lodges

The Boat Shed dining area
You’ll find luxury lodges in well-known destinations like Taupo and Queenstown and some more hidden locations only accessible by boat or helicopter -like Minaret Station in the Southern Alps. Dotted throughout the country, a luxury lodge stay guarantees the finest experience to satisfy the discerning traveller.

While the top end ‘super lodges’ are in a class of their own, each has a unique character and offers a range of accommodation. Sleep in a tree house at Hapuku Lodge or an historic homestead at Annandale - complete with a private chef. Or, deep in the Marlborough Sounds you can walk the Queen Charlotte Track and stay at the perfectly positioned Bay of Many Coves. Most lodges will include breakfast and dinner and some also offer an all-inclusive experience.
