Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses is located 12 km north of Kaikoura on New Zealand’s South Island.
Set on an olive grove and deer breeding farm, this luxury ecolodge sits at the foot of the Kaikoura Ranges and looks out over the rugged Pacific Coast.
The renowned surf spot Mangamaunu Bay, on the northern part of the Kaikoura coast, is just 1km to the east.
The lodge itself has four guest suites, each designed to offer stunning views of the surrounding scenery, plus there’s a separate private apartment with three bedrooms and five unique luxury treehouses which allow guests to get closer to the birds, the mountains, the ocean and the sky.
Rates include a generous breakfast and an exquisite three-course evening meal. The menu focuses on local, seasonal foods, and the lodge offers a fantastic selection of New Zealand wine, sourced primarily from small individually owned wineries.
There are endless activities that you can experience from Hapuku Lodge - you can use the lodge’s mountain bikes and explore the local Hapuku trails, learn to surf at Mangamaunu Bay, enjoy either a gentle stroll or a more challenging walk from the lodge, or you can help pick olives (from May-June).
The lodge’s location makes it a fantastic base for exploring Kaikoura and the east coast where you can enjoy whale-watching excursions by boat or air, and you can even swim with wild dusky dolphins in their natural habitat off the Kaikoura coastline.
