Welcome to Otahuna Lodge

Set in pastoral surroundings against the fluted cone of an ancient volcano, Otahuna Lodge is a beguiling Victorian mansion that offers its guests a unique sense of wonder and discovery.  New Zealand's largest private historic residence has been revitalised with luxury accommodation, glorious gardens and sophisticated cuisine.  In its patrician sense of calm, the grace and charm of its grounds and its refined yet personable service, Otahuna combines the romance of the past with the cosmopolitan pleasures of the present - the very best of both worlds.

This is Otahuna Lodge. This is New Zealand at its finest.
