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 bedroomed Owners Cottage. 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.
