“Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses is a contemporary country hotel that more than compliments its stunning natural environment in coastal Kaikoura, one of New Zealand’s top spots for whale watching. Wooden tree house style suites are framed by the majestic Kaikoura Mountains and stand ten metres above a canopy of native Manuka grove. Large windows ensure great views to the mountains or across the property’s own deer stud farm or olive groves, and they’ve got open fireplaces, balconies, Japanese bath tubs for two and rainforest showers to complete the luxury. For families and larger groups the Olive House Suite sleeps up to five, and has a kitchen, dining area and twin balconies with panoramic 360 degree views. Most of the furniture throughout is handcrafted – beds are custom designed and there’s a beautiful sequoia table in the lounge. Food is homemade and where possible locally sourced or from the garden, where free range chooks graze freely. The place is eco-conscious too, making use of solar power, recycling and there's even a project to plant native trees. Take time to explore the area of Kaikoura as it’s a wildlife haven – birdwatchers should keep their eyes pealed for the rare Hutton's Shearwater. A special place.”
