Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses

‘Relaxation Surrounded By Beautiful Nature’

Hapuku Lodge & Tree houses is a 5 star Eco-Retreat in a beautiful part of the world near the town of Kaikoura in the Abel Tasman & Marlborough Region. Designed as a contemporary country hotel, much of the property is crafted from natural products. The lodge rooms and suites are spacious with fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. They also feature large bathrooms with Japanese soaking tubs for two and rainforest showers.

In Our Opinion

‘The Family Tree House is great for families with an upper floor bedroom for parents and a lower floor one for children and all the time offering staggering natural views.’
