Type: Luxury lodge

Grade: Superior


Since the 1930s, this 14-room boutique hotel has built a reputation as one of the most popular destinations in the Marlborough Sounds.

A water's-edge retreat, the lodge sets its own standards for gracious and unsurpassed hospitality. Offering a wide range of recreation options, guests can book a relaxing massage, indulge in a game of pentanque or croquet, or borrow one of the complementary fishing rods, kayaks and bikes in order to explore the area. Found in a private bay only 30 minutes from Picton, this lodge offers bush-covered hills and expansive views of the beautiful Kenepuru Sound.

The Raetihi Lodge Restaurant offers sea food and fresh local produce cooked up and served for all three meals of the day. Picnic lunches are available on request.

The retreat's 14 rooms each include a fridge, mini-bar, en suite bathroom and tea/coffee making facilities. The Hillview Rooms are private, comfortable and inviting, while the Garden View Rooms are rooms tucked away in a quiet corner to allow guests to unwind in the seclusion and serenity of the beautiful surrounding gardens. The Seaview Rooms sit at the waterfront and overlook the blue waters of Kenepuru Sound. Spacious and beautifully appointed you can enjoy the expansive views of the Sound from your private deck.
