The perfect luxury escape

Immerse yourself in our tranquil garden setting with towering birch and beech trees offering leafy shade and privacy to our three cedar-clad, luxury guest rooms. Choose the room that best suits your preferences and personal style. Each one shares an air of warmth, understated sophistication, and total comfort.

Within the main lodge area, French doors open onto a large expansive deck where guests can enjoy the wider views of the lush Tongariro riverside environment, listen to bird songs and feel at peace. Our beautiful lodge has been awarded first place in a prestigious New Zealand Architectural competition, testimony to the quality and style of our accommodation and its surroundings.
