Countryside great estate.

Set in New Zealand’s pastoral landscape in the shadow of an ancient volcano, Otahuna Lodge is a Victorian mansion hidden among a 30-acre garden. The three-story homestead offers modern amenities blended with Old World charm.

Insider Tip

No trip to Otahuna is complete without a visit to the property's celebrated kitchen gardens, with 140 different varieties of organic fruits, nuts, and vegetables.

Where You’re Staying

Each of the seven suites are individually appointed with original fireplaces, carved nooks, and flowers picked from the estate. Select suites offer an octagonal study, a deep soaking bathtub with separate shower, and a private verandah with views of the Canterbury Plains.

Where to Dine

Otahuna Lodge offers a five-course menu that changes daily, utilizing the fresh produce sourced from the garden and orchard. Dining takes place in a formal candlelit dining room with original wallpaper and a roaring fire.

Where to Relax

Therapists at Otahuna Lodge’s Woodland Massage Studio provide massages in various styles and pressures, and offer a range of wellness treatments. Swim in the heated outdoor pool.

What To Do

Set sail to a volcanic harbor. Explore the ancient seaside town of Akaroa. Embark on a train ride and traverse the island’s majestic landscapes. Take a cooking lesson and learn about the philosophies behind the lodge’s food and wine program.
