Otahuna Lodge is an outstanding historic estate surrounded by more than 30 acres of lush productive gardens and set against the fluted cone of an ancient volcano.


Nestled among the rolling hills of the beautiful Canterbury region, Otahuna Lodge is a 30 minute drive from Christchurch on New Zealand’s South Island.


Each of Otahuna’s seven suites have been designed and styled with relaxation and comfort in mind. Enhanced by luxurious fabrics, designer furnishings and lavish bathrooms, each suite has its own charm and is located within a unique area of the original homestead. The lodge features beautifully designed spaces where you can relax and read a book. There is also a swimming pool, spa pool, tennis court and gym.

What we love

Everything about this magnificent, historic lodge is truly spectacular – from the tranquil gardens that feature an endless variety of fresh, homegrown produce, to the sublime service provided by hosts, Miles & Hall, and their very capable team. A true hospitality masterpiece that you simply cannot miss.
