On a secluded deer breeding farm on NZ's South Island sits Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses. The epitome of rugged luxury and tranquillity, this contemporary country hotel is surrounded by mountains, wildlife, and the glorious Kaikoura Coast. Along with exceptional luxury accommodation and facilities, Hapuku makes the perfect base for couples and families to enjoy the spectacular landscapes and a host of exciting outdoor experiences.

Hapuku Lodge occupies a prime spot along Kaikoura’s rugged coastline. Here, you’re just a short walk from the acclaimed Mangamaunu Bay where you can surf, enjoy some whale or dolphin watching, or perhaps do a spot of fishing. Just a bit further around the bay, only 10 minutes drive from the lodge, is the eclectic township of Kaikoura where you can dine, shop, explore or arrange a day trip out on the water. 

Back at the lodge, there are also plenty of activities to enjoy. Explore the property’s mountain trails by bike. Take a walk along the pristine beaches with a blanket and a picnic basket. Go on a fishing trip and watch the baby seals playing under the Oahu Waterfall. Or simply relax in bliss with a massage in your room. If you're staying in May and June, you can even help pick olives at the farm.

Dining at Hapuku Lodge is a feast of the region’s bounty and is the heart of the Lodge experience. The relaxed open-plan restaurant features simple wood furniture and timber floors. Watch as food harvested from the in-house gardens and nearby farms is prepared by Hapuku’s skilled chefs. Expect elaborate dishes featuring Kaikoura’s famous crayfish plucked fresh from the lodge’s own tank.

Hapuku Lodge offers a range of accommodation options that are suitable for couples, families and small groups. This includes five unique tree houses that sit at least 10 metres above the ground. Each accommodation offers spectacular views of the lush surrounds and the mountains beyond, along with access to all of the lodge's facilities, including the sparkling lap pool.
