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 contemporary luxury lodge. Starting with an elegant wooden slatted roof paying direct homage to the contours of the earth surrounding it, the building’s design creates an undeniable sense of harmony between structure and land. Interiors feature beautiful Spotted gum wooden panelling and imposing Bluestone masonry throughout, reflecting the tones and geography of the outside environment. Sweeping floor to ceiling windows blur the barrier between the inside and outside world.
Inside, the lodge features two spacious Master Suites and three luxurious Lodge Suites, along with a Great Hall for dining, a bar, and lounge areas all finished to a high aesthetic standard and designed for the utmost comfort and luxury.
Just steps away are three Pods offering 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 private 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 form.
Guests enjoy stargazing as a complimentary after dinner activity. Head outside into the night sky and learn about the stars using a star map and an app to find stars and constellations.

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.
