Mahu Whenua Ridgeline Homestead & Eco Sanctuary

12 5 5

Ultimate Luxury In Wanaka

Located in New Zealand’s South Island just 20 minutes drive from central Wanaka, 60 minutes drive from Queenstown or a 10 minute helicopter flight from Queenstown Airport, the Ridgeline Homestead and Cottages at Mahu Whenua are easily accessible while giving you the feeling of seclusion and privacy on what is virtually your own private national park.

Exclusive use of Mahu Whenua can accommodate up to 12 guests in four individual Ridgeline Suites (two Homestead Suites and two Cottage Suites) which each sleep up to two people.

Explore The Surrounding Area

The property consists of four adjoining high country sheep stations - Motatapu, Mt Soho, Glencoe and Coronet Peak – which, combined, stretch from Glendhu Bay in Wanaka all the way through to Arrowtown in Queenstown and host some of the most iconic and dramatic natural alpine scenery in New Zealand.

Where The Natural Environment Is At The Heart 

What makes Mahu Whenua so very special is its magical story. From the start, the owner’s vision has been to regenerate the land on the stations. In addition to introducing sustainable farming practices, he has started an extensive plant regeneration and native bird breeding programme which has been an enormous success.

To ensure that the owner’s conservation initiatives continue, more than 90% of the land has been protected by covenants (Queen Elizabeth II National Trust), making it the largest conservation undertaking on private land in New Zealand’s history. The name Mahu Whenua aptly translates to “healing the land”.

This is your chance to experience an unforgettable eco sanctuary and lodge holiday in New Zealand. All stays are hosted with a dedicated concierge team and creative and innovative chefs to cater exceptional cuisine and premium cellar selection wines. With exclusive-use stays you will also have experienced guides on hand for guided activities.
