Otahuna Lodge – a Relais and Chateaux luxury lodge outside of Christchurch, New Zealand

Luxury Accommodation

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 bathtubs with separate showers, original artworks and bath toiletries created exclusively for Otahuna Lodge. 

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.

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.

Jockey Jones Suite

Brand new for 2023 the Jockey Jones Suite is a jaunty, sophisticated sanctuary comprising multiple rooms and honouring one of Otahuna’s most beloved personalities.

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.

The Loft Suite

Nestled under the gables of the property lies one of our most recent additions, The Loft Suite, offering a fresh and whimsical perspective on gracious country house design.
