New Zealand destinations
Situated in beautiful mountain surroundings among groves of manuka trees, and enjoying panoramic views towards the blue waters of the South Pacific, Manakau Lodge is a luxury rural retreat, offering the discerning traveller the finest in bed and breakfast lodge accommodation and friendly, country hospitality.
Our four purpose-built guest rooms are spacious, elegantly appointed, and supremely comfortable. Each has its own veranda with spectacular views: to one side, the majestic peaks of the mountains, snow-capped for most of the year; to the other, an ocean panorama, fabulous sunrises, and more often than not, a glittering night sky.
Our guests' comfort is our number one priority. Rooms are individually air-conditioned and feature hand-made New Zealand rimu furnishings, deep-cushioned armchairs, LCD televisions, and the most luxurious modern bathrooms, with heated floors, warm towels, and superb monsoon showers. We offer complimentary use of an in-room iPad for the duration of your stay, as well as Apple TV, and free WiFi.
Our two Lodge Rooms offer super-comfortable king size beds with fine cotton linens. For added indulgence, our slightly larger Deluxe Rooms feature super-king beds, and the addition of deep, free-standing baths. These rooms can also be converted to twin single beds if preferred.
Your stay at Manakau Lodge includes a choice of hearty breakfast menus, including delicious home-baked croissants and pastries, fresh fruits, yoghurts, cereals and juices, with the option of several hot dishes, cooked to order. Guests may also enjoy a two or three course dinner at the Lodge. Our fine dining menus are prepared using fresh local ingredients, including New Zealand lamb, beef and seafood. Light snacks are also available for late-arrivals. Evening dining is by prior reservation
Manakau Lodge is a quiet, peaceful haven for rest and relaxation at any time of the year. Yet we are just an easy ten-minute drive from the shops and restaurants of Kaikoura, and the many leisure activities and award-winning marine excursions enjoyed by visitors from all over the world. We are a stone's throw from some great wilderness walks, and just minutes from beaches and coastal scenic reserves.
Whether you are visiting as part of a once-in-a-lifetime holiday tour, or treating yourself to a special short break in this beautiful part of New Zealand, Manakau Lodge is the perfect base from which to explore Kaikoura and the magnificent landscape around us.
