Hamurana Lodge was far superior to any other hotel we visited while in New Zealand - even ones that were more expensive. I cannot say enough good things about this lodge. The hosts were friendly and perfectly attentive, not that you would expect anything less from two former Four Seasons executives. The suite was large, spacious, clean, quiet, and had a spectacular bathroom with every possible amenity. The gardens were beautiful and included livestock, flowers, herbs, and fish ponds.
The restaurant is fantastic and every dish we ate included something from the hotel's herb and vegetable garden. The term restaurant is not really sufficient, though; it is more like a private dining experience with a personal waitstaff.
My wife and I compared every other hotel in New Zealand to Hamurana Lodge, and none of them measured up. We still talk about our stay there and how much we enjoyed it. I recommend you stay at least two nights, four or five would be ideal.
