With less than 4000 inhabitants, Kaikoura is home to fishermen, farmers, artists and craftsmen. The town thrives on crab fishing and is still one of the region's largest suppliers. With an unparalleled marine life, Kaikoura quickly became one of the best eco-marine tourism destinations.

The stunning scenery and tranquil rural setting make Kaikoura a popular destination for families and solo travelers. There are numerous activities available in the area throughout the year. These include whale watching, helicopter tours, skiing and dolphin watching.

On the grounds of the lodges you will find a game enclosure with numerous deer and deer. These belong to the owners' farm and some are bred for slaughter. However, most are used for breeding.

At the heart of Hapuku Lodge you will experience an unparalleled passion for good food and drink. All ingredients, such as herbs and vegetables, come from the lodge's garden. Fresh eggs from free-range chickens are also used in the kitchen. Everything you order to eat here is homemade - from jams to ice cream and pasta to peanut butter. You'll also be served an extensive menu of New Zealand's best wines.

During a stay here you will be spoiled for choice of accommodation. Which type you choose is entirely up to you. You can choose between two very spacious suites with breathtaking views or the highlight, the Tree Houses, which are ten meters above the ground.

Tree Houses

Each of the houses is individually designed and provides you with spectacular views of Kaikoura's beautiful mountain ranges and the surf of the Pacific coastline.

Inside, you'll find contemporary furnishings inspired by the nature all around. From the outside, the treehouses are clad in natural woods and copper shingles. Large windows bring nature right into your bedroom, creating a special atmosphere. The furniture inside has been hand-carved by locals.
