Kaikoura, New Zealand
New Zealand's most luxurious Treehouses are found at Hapuku Lodge, situated between the mountains and the ocean in Kaikoura.
Located twelve kilometres north of the world renowned eco marine town of Kaikoura on New Zealand’s east coast of the South Island, Hapuku Lodge shares the 1,500 acre property with a deer stud farm, olive grove, fruit orchard and vineyards and is nestled between the Kaikoura Seaward Mountain Range and the Pacific Ocean.
This contemporary country lodge is composed of four Lodge Suites, five luxury Tree Houses built in the canopy of a native Manuka grove, and a three bedroom Olive House. Breathtaking views of either snow capped mountains or surf washed coastline are enjoyed from all rooms.
Additionally, the property features a spacious outdoor swimming pool, pool house and private room for massage and body treatments. All rooms feature attractive custom-designed and hand-crafted furniture with spa baths or two person Japanese soak tubs.
The area in which the lodge is located was at one time known as “Kai Whare”, the Maori term for “house of food”. Today the dining room is at the heart of the Hapuku Lodge experience.

We have been blown away by everything - hotels, food, people, golf, wine - the list is endless. You did an amazing job
Planning a 7 week trip is daunting enough without the complications of COVID cancellations, rebookings, and closures. Yet every connection, every transportation detail, every accommodation, every meal, everything was flawless.
From our arrival in Sydney .. to our last stop in Queenstown .. we will carry with us the best memories of our trip and all of your efforts. The incredible private boat tours .. the bespoke wine tours with the best guides .. our accommodations .. and the excellent itinerary and pacing, made for a perfect trip.
We can't thank Southern Crossings enough for making this trip all, and more, than we had imagined. You allowed us to see the best of your countries: the people, the beauty, the culture. Five stars, a blue ribbon, and a gold medal to everyone at Southern Crossings!
Your country, its people and your team could not have made us feel more welcome.
Thank you for all the special moments you enabled us to experience.
