As a family of architects and builders, the Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses has been designed to be a contemporary country hotel. Not limiting the design efforts to the building, the entire property, where possible has been designed and handcrafted with local wood workings, with the majority of the furniture throughout the Lodge, including the custom designed beds that some guests say are, "the most comfortable beds in the South Island.” The property began in 2003 with six guest rooms in the Main Lodge and the Olive House. In 2006, five luxury Tree Houses were added. In 2009 a remodelling of the Main Lodge, allowed the conversion of the six rooms into four - two Suites, one Lodge Room, and the Hapuku Room - and also added a lap-pool and sauna.
Unique New Zealand accommodation, nested 30 feet (10 M) above the ground in the canopy of a native Manuka grove, each Tree House has spectacular views of Kaikoura's dramatic mountains and surf-washed Pacific coastline. As with the Lodge, the Tree Houses are meant to be a contemporary complement to the natural environment. Their exteriors are clad in native woods and copper shingles. Large windows bring the tree canopy right into the bedroom. Interior furnishings were crafted by local woodworking friends.

Serving continental or cooked breakfast, and a three-course dinner menu with numerous options, the kitchen focuses on fresh local ingredients -- fish, meats, and all manner of seasonal vegetables, many from the properties own little farm. The chefs prepare meals utilizing the bounty of food-stuff that Kaikoura and New Zealand have to offer. Fresh, unpretentious, and delicious. Guests are treated to an extensive all New Zealand wine list, and a wide-range of traditional cocktails, along with local and international beers and non-alocholic beverages. The hotel can accommodate most dietary concerns, though we can better provide for your needs with advance notification.
