Christchurch / Otahuna Lodge

Built in 1895 for Victorian benefactor Sir Heaton Rhodes, this exclusive Relais & Chateaux homestead is surrounded by spectacular botanical gardens and retains many original features, from stained glass windows to ornate fireplaces and carved inglenooks, enhanced by an impressive art collection including a number of New Zealand specifically commissioned works. Yet it is also the state-of-the-art services that impress. Individually designed suites exude refined comfort, superb seasonal cuisine and fine wines, all setting the tone for an unforgettable stay. In the dining room there’s an air of Victorian opulence, or choose to dine at a private table in the sunken wine cellar or drawing room turret. For recreation there’s a spa pool, Woodland Massage Studio, complimentary tours and hands-on cooking lessons from Executive Chef Jimmy McIntyre which are always popular with guests. Altogether this is a honeymooners’ paradise.

When to visit New Zealand

New Zealand’s seasons are the opposite to those in the UK and less extreme. The North Island is sub-tropical whilst the South Island is temperate. The warmest and most popular months to visit are from December to April, although the shoulder seasons are also very pleasant and highly recommended.
