Nestled in a serene valley in the heart of rural Nelson, Edenhouse is an overdue reminder of the genuine meaning of luxury. This enchanting luxury lodge, set in fifty acres of private grounds and ...More internationally acclaimed gardens has an enviable location - perfectly positioned between Nelson and The Abel Tasman National Park -- it's surrounded by the activities and experiences in which its guests delight. In the June 2016 edition of The Hideaway Report, Andrew Harper concluded of Edenhouse: “It is always a delight to discover a hideaway that I can unequivocally endorse. Edenhouse is a true gem” and “Hospitality just doesn’t get any better than this”. The Edenhouse “Harper Rating” of 97 out of 100 is the highest-equal among Mr. Harper’s assessments of New Zealand’s most exclusive and highly regarded luxury accommodation. Edenhouse is finished and furnished to a very high standard with an emphasis on comfort, relaxation, understated luxury, attention to detail, and fine food and wine. Edenhouse accepts only 6 guests thereby retaining the "small boutique lodge" experience. It comes as no surprise that two prestigious publications, Tatler and The Robb Report, included Edenhouse in their 100 Best Hotels of the World. Less
