Wanaka, South Island

Enjoy total privacy, unforgettable experiences and exquisite cuisine in a setting which spans over 550 square kilometres of majestic beauty – towering mountains, lush green valleys, native forest and meandering rivers.

Mahu Whenua will give you the feeling of rural seclusion and privacy on what is virtually your own private national park, less than 30 minutes drive from central Wanaka.


The five Ridgeline Suites are beautifully appointed with  captivating  lake, mountain or river views, and feature luxurious finishes befitting of the environment. The Homestead and Suites are also available on an exclusive- use basis for groups or families travelling together.

Mahu Whenua Homestead is the perfect base for you to explore the expansive property, which consists of four adjoining high country sheep stations, stretching from Wanaka through to Queenstown and offering some of the most iconic and dramatic natural alpine scenery in New Zealand.

What makes Mahu Whenua so very special is its magical story. The owner has introduced sustainable farming practices, as well as an extensive plant regeneration and native bird breeding programme. More than 90% of the land has been protected by covenants making it the largest conservation undertaking on private land in New Zealand’s history. The name Mahu Whenua aptly translates to “healing the land”.

This is your chance to experience a unique and unforgettable eco sanctuary and lodge holiday in New Zealand.

Located in one of the most beautiful places in the world, Hapuku Lodge is a 5 star Eco-Retreat just a few km’s north of the eco-marine town of Kaikoura. Nestled 30 feet in the air, the tree houses sit amongst a native Kanuka Grove underneath the majestic Kaikoura Mountains.

"If you could but be a bird you could more fully appreciate the beauty that is Kaikoura." That was our inspiration – how could we put our guests among the birds? 

 

Our seductive crops of Manuka and Kanuka suggested the solution: station people in the tree tops and they would be closer to the mountains, closer to the ocean, closer to the birds. And that is what we have tried to do – allow our guests to nest in the treetops in a luxurious version of a child’s tree house.
 

A contemporary country lodge, Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses is composed of five luxury tree houses set 30 feet (10 metres) above the ground in the canopy of native Kanuka.  An additional four luxury lodge suites and the Olive House suite provide additional accommodation.

The idyllic setting adds to the allure, with the wild deer wandering on the resident farm, olive groves and a vineyard – all set up against the picturesque backdrop of the Kaikoura ranges.
