Encircled by towering mountains and verdant green valleys, this unique eco lodge boasts exquisite views in every direction from its ridgeline position. Stretching across the breadth of four high country sheep stations, the protected Mahu Whenua eco sanctuary, translating to ‘healing the land’, is the largest private conservation effort in New Zealand. With a native bird breeding programme and over one million trees planted since its inception, guests can see the working farm in action, feed the inquisitive flightless weka or simply explore the peaceful landscape on foot, horseback or electric bike. With a rustic farmhouse design, the lodge itself offers a haven of tranquility and many cosy communal areas to relax and take in the astounding views. Just four suites ensures that service is warm and personalised and dining here is truly memorable, from delectable pre-dinner canapés to gourmet riverside picnics, all created using only the freshest local produce. For an unforgettable stay in pristine surroundings, Mahu Whenua will not disappoint.
