About Hapuku Lodge
Hapuku Lodge is set outside the seaside town of Kaikoura, in one of South Island's most spectacular settings.
Hapuku is a contemporary country lodge with suites and rooms in the main lodge building, a freestanding two bedroom suite in the grounds with its own kitchen and a collection of unique wood clad treehouse.
Each Tree House is architecturally stunning, perched high in a native Manuka grove with arresting panoramic views of the dramatic surroundings of the mountains, ocean and the lodge's own deer park. The lodge itself serves delicious contemporary seasonal cuisine, locally sourced produce and a fantastic selection of fine New Zealand wine.
The lodge is positioned between the often snow capped mountains and the ocean and is a wonderful base for exploring the Kaikoura and East Coast area. Kaikoura is famous for its marine life and offers whale watching and the chance to swim with wild dolphins, making it the perfect destination for those with an adventurous streak.
How to get there
Three airports are within reach of Hapuku Lodge: Kaikoura airport is a 15-minute drive away; the larger international Christchurch Airport, to the south, is a 2 hour 30 minute drive and Blenheim Airport, to the north, is a 1-hour 30-minute drive.
When to go
The weather tends to be pretty unpredictable. That said, it means that you can go at any time of year and still get glorious days. At the bottom of the world (or top, depending on how you look at it!) the seasons are opposite to the Northern Hemisphereâs and most people who visit New Zealand choose to go during their summer season, which is December through February.
The risks to health whilst travelling will vary between individuals and many issues need to be taken into account, e.g. activities abroad, length of stay and general health of the traveller. It is recommended that you consult with your General Practitioner or Practice Nurse 6-8 weeks in advance of travel.
