The Verandah Suite at Otahuna Lodge


Each of Otahuna's seven suites is an enclave of refined comfort.  Here, the classical ambience created by ornate fireplaces, carved inglenooks and flowers freshly picked from the Estate has been enhanced with luxurious fabrics and lavish bathrooms. 

Sir Heaton Rhodes' former bedroom is the nucleus of a grand, four-room Master Suite incorporating an octagonal study.  The other Master Suite has a private, fourteen-metre verandah with views across the Canterbury Plains.  A further five Suites have their own individual charms, each located within a unique area of the original homestead.

All of the Master Suites and Suites offer super-king beds, fine custom-made linens, deep soaking bathubs with separate showers and toiletries by Pehanligon's.

Master Suites

Rhodes Suite

Originally the master bedroom, the Rhodes Suite is actually a series of four rooms which embodies the gracious character of Sir Heaton and Jessie Rhodes.

Verandah Suite

Epitomising the phrase "room with a view", the Verandah Suite was historically reserved for the property's most privileged guests and is noted for its panoramic, private terrace.

Botanical Suite

The Botanical Suite is situated in the original Morning Room of the house on the ground floor and offers a gingerbread mantlepiece and picture window overlooking the gardens.

Butler Suite

The Butler Suite comprises a series of rooms looking over the brick herb garden and the terracotta roof of the sunken game house – now a wine cellar – to the woodland beyond.

Clark Suite

Named for the Lady of the House, Jessie Clark, the Clark Suite was Jessie's former bedroom and enjoys views of the woodlands through its exquisite stained glass windows.

Garret Suite

Perched at the top of the house, the Garret Suite is a whimsical, timber-clad refuge which evokes Heaton Rhodes' passion for the great outdoors.

Polo Suite

So named for the tradition of the game at Otahuna, the Polo Suite occupies a sunny position at the front of the house overlooking a courtyard on one side and the Great Lawn on the other.
