Lodge Facilities

A luxury New Zealand lodge near Abel Tasman National Park, Nelson Region. The Resurgence is a destination in its own right. Set in the delightful Riwaka Valley, in 20 hectares (50 acres) of bush. You are surrounded by native birds and tranquility. There is no road noise and no other buildings in sight.

With 5km of walking tracks, divine massages & therapies, a saltwater pool, hot tub, gym & yoga area, bikes and games there is always plenty to do; or just relax with a book and a glass of sauvignon blanc.

Soak up the Lodge atmosphere and experience the local cuisine with refined lodge dining in a convivial atmosphere or self-cater and enjoy a peaceful evening accompanied by the sounds of nature.

What we mean by luxury eco-lodge

For some, ‘luxury’ means gold-plated taps and material sumptuousness and ‘eco’ means living off the grid without comforts. In New Zealand we tend to regard ‘luxury’ as being more about a special place, tranquility and freedom of time and choice, combined with service that is friendly and attentive to detail. Our ‘eco’ is a luxury wilderness experience set in beautiful native bush and surrounded by birdsong. The Resurgence is well suited to rejuvenating vacations that embrace relaxation, outdoor activities and indulgence in healthy food, to seek time, space and privacy to recover from the stresses of busy modern lifestyles.
