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.
Each suite has a classical ambience, created by ornate fireplaces, carved inglenooks and flowers freshly picked from the grounds. The grounds of Otahuna Lodge are recognised as “A Garden of National Significance” and offer a range of guest amenities and activities including swimming, tennis and croquet. The cuisine at the lodge celebrates the best of seasonal New Zealand produce. Dinner is a 5 course degustation menu which changes daily and which makes use of fresh produce sourced directly from Otahuna’s garden and orchard.
