Manakau Lodge gets its name from its idyllic setting by a Manaku grove near the coastal town of Kaikoura. This luxury B&B lodge is wedged between rolling highlands and the seaside. The sprawling property, with its landscaped gardens, is ideal for a laidback vacation, yet not too far from ocean adventures. Stay in any of the four exclusive ensuite rooms with luxurious bathing areas, outdoor deck and sit-out areas that overlook the Pacific Ocean or the impressive Seaward Mountain Range. Lounge by your outdoor patio, drinking in the beautiful landscape or venture out to explore Kaikoura town, which is less than a 15 minute drive away. Fuel up on the wholesome breakfast prepared by the lodge, before taking a stroll along the cafés, restaurants and art galleries of Kaikoura. Return to a relaxed evening, savoring the fresh fruits and artisan cheeses served on your private deck. Enjoy the spectacular South Pacific sunsets and starry skies over a glass of delicious New Zealand wine.
