We visited Otahuna during spring and the gardens were lush and splendid, the hospitality of Miles, Thomas and Jimmy warm and welcoming, and the house as regal as ever. It was my second visit to Otahuna and it's great to see that this luxury lodge has become all that Miles and Hall envisioned. The Rhodes Suite was the perfect respite... More

We stayed at Otahuna Lodge on the 16th March for just the one night . From the moment we arrived, when we were greeted by the house staff , to the moment we left , it could not have been a more perfect stay. the Rhodes suite within the house was assigned to us. Very spacious and comfortable . We... More

Otahuna Lodge is tranquility defined. From the beautiful gardens and pathways, to the stunning home, to the friendly, helpful staff, to the absolutely wonderful food and wine, I could have stayed here much longer than the two nights we had booked. It was lovely to be greeted at the door and to walk into a "hotel" that is by no... More

Sybaritic and superb From the moment either Hall or Miles welcome you to Otahuna to the moment one is waved of by one of them, one is treated as a member of the family, returning after an arduous tour of duty and in need of rest, relaxation, refreshment and restorative healing. The ambience created by Hall Miles and their excellent... More

We stayed here in June to set up for our daughters wedding on 20th December. The Lodge is a perfect setting for such an important event and they carried the whole weekend off superbly. Jimmy the chef is superb, fresh ingredients grown on the property and perfectly prepared. The team could not be more professional and looked after our every... More

Again words cant adequately describe Otahuna Lodge. We recently revisited Otahuna for the third time where we were absolutely spoilt during our entire stay. Right from our arrival when all the management team and staff greeted us on the steps through until we departed we were treated like royalty. On this visit we were in the Veranda Suite, what a...

As with a number of the other reviews how do you adequately describe a level of service and pampering that simply has to be experienced. The property is exquisite, even in winter, and the chef, Jimmy, is a passionate advocate for local, organic produce. His wizardry in the kitchen is second to none. Everyone from the owners to the entire... More

This place is truly a gem. We started our honeymoon here and wow, it did not disappoint. It was sheer opulence since the moment we drove through the gate, nothing was too much trouble for AJ, Jimmy and their crew! We booked three nights and they kindly offered the fourth for free, of course we took it! Words cannot describe... More

All the above adjectives used by previous reviewers to describe Otahuna Lodge are not an exaggeration! We started our three weeks holiday in New Zealand in the South and went from one lodge to the next until we reached Auckland . WE stayed three nights at Otahuna and since then our benchmark to judge a hotel has been pushed a... More

Nothing is too much trouble in this sophisticated oasis. The personal attention, service and thoughtful touches added to the pleasurable experience of luxury bedrooms and linen, huge bathrooms, elegant dining, brilliant homely breakfasts and overwhelming comfort. And the hosts, well, Miles and Hall were always charming and engaging, altogether a memorable stay, thank you.
