Luxury Holidays At Otahuna Lodge

Built in 1895 by parliamentarian, Sir Heaton Rhodes, Otahuna Lodge – with its romantic rooflines and elaborate architectural detail – is one of New Zealand’s most iconic Heritage-listed properties and is a member of Relais & Châteaux. Interiors retain traditional features, such as the original fireplaces, period furniture and stained-glass windows, whilst the divine guest suites offer views of the spectacular gardens or the Southern Alps. Such is the status of the property, the magnificent Verandah Suite once hosted King George VI and the lodge additionally  houses a private collection of New Zealand art – thirty-five pieces - including works by Peter Beadle and Craig Primrose. During the autumn and winter, the lodge is a magnet for gourmands from around the globe, who come to sample the incredible flavours of the New World Truffle, grown nearby at Brochii Park Truffière.

Hotel Experiences

A stay at Otahuna Lodge is all about tranquillity, relaxing and de-stressing. Embark on woodland walks and horse-riding, or borrow one of the lodge's bikes and explore the vast country estate, as well as its surrounding lakes. For those with an interest in the culinary world, there are three-hour cooking classes to be enjoyed and a whole garden of ingredients to inspire you. In addition, heli-skiing, wilderness treks, lunch at Pegasus Bay Winery and trips to the harbour town of Akaroa can all be arranged.


Combining complete luxury with the striking natural beauty of its surroundings, few places in the world match Otahuna Lodge in charm and romance. With just seven guest suites - each complete with a deep-soaking bath, luxurious fabrics and freshly picked flowers - a stay here ensures true privacy and exclusivity. Enjoy an intimate woodland stroll through the lodge's enchanting 118-year-old gardens, before enjoying a culinary celebration of New Zealand at a private table for two in the sunken wine cellar. For a shared experience of a lifetime, take a thrilling helicopter ride over the breathtaking Southern Alps.

Lakes & Mountains

Secluded, rural and with the backdrop of an ancient volcano, Otahuna Lodge provides a luxurious base from which to discover the striking region of Canterbury - marked by grassy plains, clear lakes and snow-capped mountains. Cycle the scenic six-kilometre loop in Otahuna Valley, or head for the largest downhill mountain-bike park in the Southern hemisphere or, taking one of the world's greatest train journeys, head to Arthur's Pass National Park, where you can hike in a stunning forest teeming with glacial streams and waterfalls. During the winter, attention switches to the ski fields, making Canterbury a thrilling, snowy playground.

Spa & Wellness

Embrace the sense of calm that pervades Otahuna Lodge and its striking surroundings, with an indulgent and relaxing massage from an exclusive menu offering various treatments, styles and pressures. The tranquil Woodland Studio will provide a contemporary haven for luxurious one-hour or 90-minute massages.
