Otahuna Lodge

2 1 1

Otahuna Lodge is an intimate, exclusive retreat offering seven individual suites within an 1895 homestead.

The 2 master suites and 5 suites retain grand architectural features from the 19th century such as ornate wood-burning fireplaces, carved inglenooks and stained glass windows.

Food and wine are an integral part of the Lodge experience. The menu celebrates the best of fresh New Zealand produce with an emphasis on seasonal estate-grown offerings. Honest, uncluttered flavours, the finest ingredients and elegantly restrained presentation are the hallmarks of the Otahuna table.

The spectacular 110-year old gardens stretch over 30 acres.  Wide vistas over lawn and lake contrast beautifully with intimate walks which wind through heavily wooded areas. Meanwhile the formal “Dutch” garden invites guests to meander its hedged pathways to discover exotic trees, including some of New Zealand’s largest and finest specimens.

Situated at the base of the Banks Peninsula, Otahuna Lodge is just 20 minutes drive from the city centre of Christchurch, making it the ideal place from which to explore Canterbury. Wineries, private gardens, championship golf, world-class fishing and even the world’s rarest dolphins are all just a short drive - or helicopter ride - from the front door.
