Take to the treetops at Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses hotel where canopy-level rooms offer views of mountains, sea and the hotel's own deer park. Set in seaside Kaikoura, on New Zealand's South Island, it's a top spot for whale-watching.

As a family of architects and builders, we designed Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses to be a contemporary country hotel. Not limiting our design efforts to the building, we also designed and handcrafted - with local wood working friends - the majority of the furniture throughout the Lodge, including the custom designed beds that some guests say are, "the most comfortable beds in the South Island.” We began in 2003 with six guest rooms in the Main Lodge and the Olive House. In 2006, we added the five luxury Tree Houses. In 2009 we remodelled the Main Lodge, converting the six rooms into four - two Suites, one Lodge Room, and the Hapuku Room - and also added a lap-pool and sauna.

At the heart of the Hapuku Lodge experience is a passion for good food and wine. Produce is sourced from the Lodge's own herb and vegetable gardens, free range chickens, as well as local market gardens, fisherman and hunters. Wild game is a regular feature on the menu along with crayfish (rock lobster) and other locally sourced seafood. 

We can accommodate most dietary concerns, though we can better provide for your needs with advance notification.

You don't have to be an in-house guest to enjoy the culinary experience at Hapuku.  We enjoy hosting visitors to Kaikoura and locals alike.

The waters off Kaikoura’s coast are extremely rich in marine life. New Zealand Geographic calls Kaikoura, “A maritime Serengeti,” “a Sea World without Walls.” The natural landscape creates an abundance of activities in and around Kaikoura for guests to explore.

 Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses is an ideal location for small and medium sized groups looking for an exclusive and rewarding retreat -- easy to reach, yet far from city distractions. Hapuku Lodge has dedicated and flexible spaces for either small groups seeking privacy, or those wishing to book the entire property for exclusive events.

 

Celebrate your marriage and begin the rest of your life together in one of our world renowned tree houses - the ultimate luxury honeymoon. Choose from the Honeymoon Escape; Heli-Honeymoon or Ultimate Hapuku Honeymoon packages, or call us to design your own special romantic experience.

 

The hotel offers a snack bar/deli. A bar/lounge is on site where guests can unwind with a drink. Guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast. An Internet point is located on site and high-speed wireless Internet access is complimentary.

In 2006, we added the five luxury Tree Houses. In 2009 we remodelled the Main Lodge, converting the six rooms into four - two Suites, one Lodge Room, and the Hapuku Room - and also added a lap-pool and sauna.

Our two large (80sq metres; 900sq feet), hotel-style Lodge Suites have separate living and sleeping areas, deep Japanese soaking tubs (with room for two!), rain fountain showers, fireplaces, and either a balcony (upstairs) or patio (downstairs) overlooking the deer paddock and Kaikoura’s spectacular environment. Our Lodge Suites can accommodate up to three persons.

The Lodge Suite amenities include:

Spacious suite accommodation, with separate living and sleeping areas

Living area with stone gas fireplace, lounge and private dining table

Balcony (first floor) or patio (ground floor) terrace with views of Kaikoura’s spectacular mountains

Japanese style two person soaking tub, rain fountain shower, heated towel rails and bathroom floor

LCD TV, DVD/CD player, iPod sound system, free wireless broadband, air conditioning/heating, fridge, tea and coffee facilities

 

One Lodge Suite is suitable for disabled accommodation, with wheelchair access.

The Olive House is our most spacious accommodation. It's the perfect place to unpack your bags and spread out a bit, even cook if you're in the mood, with room enough for two adults and up to three children. Just like home, almost, but with a much better view.

Features:

360-degree view of mountains, ocean, olive orchard, and deer farm

Separate bedroom with black-out curtains and king bed that can be split into two twin beds, a couple’s spa bath, and custom-designed furnishings

Fully equipped kitchen and dining area, for self-contained living; wood-burning fireplace and twin balconies.

TV, DVD/CD player, personalized iPOD sound system, free wireless

The Olive House is suitable for families; rollaway beds or a child’s cot can be made available.

 

A stay in the Olive House includes a 3 course dinner and full cooked breakfast for two in the lodge, just a short walk away.

Unique New Zealand accommodation, nested 30 feet (10 M) above the ground in the canopy of a native Manuka grove, each Tree House has spectacular views of Kaikoura's dramatic mountains and surf-washed Pacific coastline.

As with the Lodge, the Tree Houses are meant to be a contemporary complement to the natural environment. Their exteriors are clad in native woods and copper shingles. Large windows bring the tree canopy right into the bedroom. Interior furnishings were crafted by local woodworking friends.

One Bedroom

The one bedroom Tree House is a favourite for honeymooners and couples looking for a luxurious tree top stay.

Family

 

The two-floor Tree Houses were created with families in mind. They include the upper bedroom Tree House for the parents, with a lower bedroom (what we call the Lower Branch Tree House) connected by an interior staircase, for the children.

All the food at Hapuku Lodge is made in the lodge kitchen including breads, stocks, ice cream, jams and jellies - even the peanut butter. Fiona and her team change the dinner menu daily to take full advantage of the fresh produce, game and seafood available. A regular feature on the menu is local venison and wild blackberries in port on an agria and porcini gratin and warm hazelnut muscovado cake with wild raspberries in a Pinot Noir syrup with organic plum ice cream.

We have an extensive all New Zealand wine list, and a wide-range of traditional cocktails, along with local beer and non-alcoholic beverages.

The waters off Kaikoura’s coast are extremely rich in marine life. New Zealand Geographic calls Kaikoura, “A maritime Serengeti,” “a Sea World without Walls.” The natural landscape creates an abundance of activities in and around Kaikoura for guests to explore.

Hapuku Lodge is a great base camp from which to undertake a marine safari. World famous whale watching, giant albatross encounters, playful dolphin and seal swimming, sea kayaking, and deep-sea fishing are available year round.

For those staying off the high seas, options include Night Sky Tours, Maori Cultural Tours, scenic flights, horseback riding, biking, great hiking (or tramping as we call it in NZ), and the Baby Seal Colony just a short drive from the Lodge. Wine regions, north and south, are just a scenic drive away.

It's less than a kilometer down our country lane to the acclaimed surf of Mangamaunu Bay.

 

And guests can use the Lodge's mountain bikes (and helmets) to tour the local by-ways.

 Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses is an ideal location for small and medium sized groups looking for an exclusive and rewarding retreat -- easy to reach, yet far from city distractions. Hapuku Lodge has dedicated and flexible spaces for either small groups seeking privacy, or those wishing to book the entire property for exclusive events.  

Located on the ground floor of the Olive House, the Conference Room is designed to facilitate productive time spent in an environment of inspiring views. Around custom designed tables, attendees can look out to the Kaikoura Seaward Ranges and deer filled paddocks. The room is outfitted with digital projector, surround sound stereo, digital wireless whiteboard, wireless internet, printer and conference call facilities.
