My husband (Macesta) and I just spent 3 days in Nelson and I am so glad that he found Parautane Lodge. We had a lovely, relaxing stay in, for me, high luxury. While the drive up to the lodge is a bit steep the thrill of the view is well worth it. The view from the car park is amazing and does not diminish once you walk down to the lodge itself. Our room was lovely - and as my husband pointed out - Heated Floors in the bathroom! We spent our down time looking out the window at the amazing views of the ocean and mountains beyond. If it had been warmer we would have been able to sit outside on our private balcony.
The lodge is located outside of Nelson proper, but not too far away from all the attractions and restaurants. The hot tub, slightly down below the lodge itself, feels like one is a thousand kilometers away from the rest of the world. We greatly enjoyed watching the birds and the surrounding nature.
Overall - a great place. We will definitely go back!
