Bush Lodge - stand-alone luxury suites

Our most luxurious suites are extremely well appointed with a spacious open plan design, polished timber floors and earthy colours. With great views to Kahurangi National Park you have total privacy, yet still close to the main Lodge for the pool and dining. Rooms are 50m2 (500 sq ft) and outside there are 2 large private decks 30m2 (300 sq ft) with table and chairs and sun-loungers.

Select the Lodge Package for the unique New Zealand Lodge experience with full breakfasts, daily aperitifs & table d‘hote lodge dining. [For anyone staying more than 3 nights, we offer an option of a 3-course dinner with BBQ pack or a lighter main to eat in your suite one evening. Even if you dine out on one evening, it is still our best package for anyone not planning to cook for themselves every night.]

Alternatively, book the Self-cater option to escape the world for a quiet getaway. A welcome basket and daily breakfast supplies mean you can enjoy a healthy breakfast with free-range eggs from the Riwaka Valley in the privacy of your own suite or on your deck; self-cater or dine at local cafés (casual dining options 20 minutes drive, fine dining 40-60 minutes drive) for full freedom in the evening. You can mix-and-match and add Dinner at the Lodge for one or more nights, or a cooked breakfast. [Dinner on arrival night is recommended. In early or late season especially, dinner may not be available at short notice if no other guests are booked or we have insufficient staff or ingredients for late dinner bookings.]

Bush Lodges are serviced daily.
Kitchen & BBQ (shops & cafes 20 minutes away)
Guests have full access to pool, spa and all Lodge facilities.

Ideal for honeymoons and the ultimate luxury experience.
