Lodges that are members of the Lodges of New Zealand portfolio are small, intimate and considered the epitome of luxury and offering exceptional fine dining. They fulfill the promise of the outstanding New Zealand landscape, be it a lake edge or river bank, perched on a cliff top or mountainside, glorious gardens or the wilderness, set on a farm or vineyard, on the beach or an idyllic island.

“A Valentine’s Day offer fits in perfectly with the Gift Voucher and Bridal Registry service that Lodges of New Zealand introduced within the last year.”
