Bush Chalet - stand-alone studio suites

Bush Chalets are studio suites nestled in the bush with uninterupted views over Kahurangi National Park. With timber ceiling, natural colours and luxury wool carpet our Bush Chalets offer the same comforts as an Ensuite Room but more space and privacy. They are 35m2 (350 sq ft) with 2 large decks 25m2 (250 sq ft) with table and chairs, private hot tub and sun-loungers. 50 - 100m from the main Lodge.

Dinner Bed & Breakfast - Lodge Package includes continental and cooked breakfast, aperitifs at 7pm and our daily changing trust the chef dinner menu featuring garden to table fresh local produce served at 7:30pm.

Dining is like a dinner-party, where you get to know your hosts and fellow diners during pre-dinner drinks and enjoy lively conversation over 4 delicious courses of our daily trust-the-chef menu. We are not a restaurant or big hotel, so please let us know foods you dislike before arrival, just as you would if visiting a friend.

For anyone who prefers romantic dining, we have several options, both inside and out where you can enjoy the same chef's dinner at a table for 2.

We also offer a third alternative dining option. This 3-course casual dinner to eat in your suite, comprises a starter and dessert prepared by our chef with the choice of BBQ ingredients or a large composed salad platter. This option must be booked in advance and is ideal for honeymooners or for guests wanting a quiet evening alone.


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

Ideal for relaxed summer holidays & longer stays.
