Ahuriri Valley, New Zealand
The Lindis treats guests to complete and utter luxury in one of New Zealand's most rugged and remote landscapes.
The Ahuriri Valley is rugged slice of paradise in New Zealand’s south. Resting almost imperceptibly on the valley floor is The Lindis, a truly unique luxury lodge. Starting with an elegant wooden slatted roof paying direct homage to the contours of the earth below, the design of the building creates an undeniable sense of harmony between structure and land. The interior of the building features beautiful Spotted Gum wooden panelling and imposing Bluestone masonry throughout, reflecting the tones and geography of the outside environment, with sweeping floor to ceiling windows blurring the barriers between the inside and outside worlds.
Inside, the lodge features two spacious Master Suites and three luxurious Lodge Suites, as well as the Great Hall for dining, a bar, and lounge areas, all finished in the same beautiful aesthetic and designed for the utmost comfort and luxury.
Just steps away are three Pods which offer guests a truly unique accommodation experience. Nestled gently into the landscape, the compact Pods bring the environment well and truly into the fore while offering the ultimate in privacy and escape. Designed with double glazed mirrored glass walls on three sides, and an efficient 18 square metre footprint, these heated Pods allow guests to experience the ever-changing local environment in its most nuanced forms.
