We stayed in one of the tree houses and they are stunning. One of the best rooms we have ever stayed in, with fantastic views, fireplace in the room and a deck for looking into the very dark night sky. The on site management team bent over backwards to give us the best service possible and the food was absolutely...

2/28/14-This place just blew my hubby away...as we walked into our upper branch tree house the iPod was playing our favorite jazz music. The views of mountains, olive orchards, deer farm and the Pacific peaking at the back edges were all so captivating. The food at the main lodge was fantastic (ask for chefs seating for a great show) The...

We stayed two night in one of the tree houses. Wow, I had seen the hotel on a trip advisor top ten tree house hotels of the world and decided I wanted to stay. Good idea and thank you trip advisor. It was an expensive treat but then it had cost a fortune to get to New Zealand anyway. Everything...

What a place - truly awesome and a must stay for whale watchers. The architects have done such a good job here with high quality materials. The views (sea and mountains) are stunning. Sunrise and sundown both gorgeous.

In our three weeks in New Zealand, I don't think anything approached the luxury of Hapuku Lodge. Everything is tended to here, down to the last detail. The service is top-notch, the food is spectacular, and the views may be the most stunning views I saw in New Zealand. Of course, there's supply and demand, and staying at Hapuku Lodge...

If you're like us you won't be able to stay for long - as it certainly isn't cheap - but what it is is unique and outstanding. The view back to the mountains from the top floor of our "family" (two story) tree house was breathtaking. The tree house itself was wonderful - beautifully designed and appointed. The dinner was...

Following a long trip from the east coast of the USA to the South Island we decided on a few days to decompress at Hapuku just outside of Kaikora. A 90 minute drive from the airport brought us to this unique setting where we settled in to a top floor of the tree house. This is not your average tree...

We were impressed upon arrival, but staying for a second night generated even more appreciation of the establishment. The "Tree Houses" are very well appointed - and their interior design is really something to see. We stayed in a "two story", with parents upstairs and teens down. Be mindful that the lower room is not quite as fabulous as the...
