Otahuna Lodge

Christchurch, New Zealand

Otahuna Lodge

All luxury suites at Otahuna Lodge offer super-king beds, fine custom-made linens, toiletries by Penhaligon’s of London, deep bathtubs and separate rain showers.

The cuisine at Otahuna Lodge celebrates the best of seasonal New Zealand produce, with an emphasis on fresh Otahuna estate-grown offerings. Dinner is a five-course chef’s degustation menu which changes daily, making use of the best fresh produce and guests’ dietary requirements. Honest, uncluttered flavours, the finest local ingredients and elegantly restrained presentation are the hallmarks of the Otahuna table. At dinner, guests dine communally in the opulent formal dining room - ornate original wallpaper, a roaring fire and sparkling candlesticks exemplify the gracious living of the Victorian era. Alternatively, they may retreat to a private table for two in the sunken wine cellar, the intimate library, the drawing room turret, or a location of their choosing. Should this pique one’s taste buds, many culinary experiences may be pursued on the property including cooking classes and seasonal mushroom foraging. Private tours of local, artisanal food providers are arranged upon request. 

The spectacular 110-year old gardens of Otahuna were laid out and cultivated under the direction of A. E. Lowe who trained at Kew Gardens, London. Wide vistas over lawn and lake contrast beautifully with intimate walks which wind through heavily wooded areas. The gardens of the country estate offer a range of guest amenities and activities including swimming, tennis, croquet and petanque among others.

Otahuna Lodge is the perfect base camp for exploring Christchurch and the wider Canterbury Region. Area activities that can be arranged include private garden tours, horse riding, golf, heliskiing, fishing and hunting excursions. The Lodge is also conveniently located for the scenic French settlement of Akaroa with its fascinating marine life, the varied recreational offerings of the Southern Alps, and the Waipara wine region.

After a busy day of exploring, guests may enjoy the benefits of luxury accommodation by indulging in a relaxing or therapeutic massage. Therapists provide a range of treatments, styles and pressures to accommodate a wide variety of preferences.
