Ha­puku Lodge

World Travel Magazine - - Where To Stay -

New Zealand

Sur­rounded by the drama of the Kaik­oura’s Moun­tains and close enough to the whale-rich wa­ters of New Zealand’s South Is­land, the Ha­puku Lodge is heaven sent for na­ture lovers. The tree­house suites sit tucked away be­tween the branches of na­tive manuka tow­er­ing above a 1600-acre deer farm. Beau­ti­fully crafted from re­claimed timber and soar­ing glass, the lodge is noth­ing short of a knock­out. Eco bliss is a high pri­or­ity at this stun­ning spot – where power is so­lar gen­er­ated, food gath­ered from the lo­cal farms and brand-new trees con­stantly planted to keep the area in bloom. Be sure to book one of the five tree­house suites with their far-reach­ing ocean and canopy views, read­ing nooks, spa tubs, crack­ling wood fires and pri­vate decks. Re­laxed lux­ury is the name of the game at Ha­puku; from lounging be­side the gen­er­ous so­lar heated pool to surf­ing the break­ers at nearby Manga­maunu Bay, bor­row­ing bikes to hit the nearby trails, and whale watch­ing trips. ha­puku­lodge.com
