Otahuna Lodge is an exclusive retreat situated just 20 minutes from the heart of Christchurch. This elegant Victorian mansion with elaborate 19th-century architectural details sits nestled in pastoral surroundings with an ancient volcano providing the backdrop. Look forward to an indulgent stay in spacious suites, some with unique themes, featuring ornate fireplaces and carved inglenooks. Fresh flowers lend a cheery air to the plush rooms with huge windows and period decor. Hit the courts for a game of tennis followed by some water therapy at the outdoor swimming pool or Jacuzzi. Spend some time near the manicured lawn and gardens strolling around the lake and walking across the three quaint wooden bridges. At dinner time, relish the chef’s five-course degustation menu which changes daily and features produce sourced from the in-house organic vegetable garden and orchards. Go back in time as you enjoy your meals in the opulent dining room or choose to have an intimate dinner in the library, the sunken wine cellar, or even the drawing room turret.
