Otahuna Lodge

224 Rhodes Road, 7672 Tai Tapu Christchurch, New Zealand Access

Otahuna Lodge

Established in a 19th century Victorian residence- a few minutes from Christchurch- Otahuna Lodge is an exceptional house- seamlessly knitting past and present together. Antique furniture- period woodwork and remarkable library elegantly intermingle with contemporary creations of New Zealand artists and a rich collection of Maori art. The atmosphere of the 7 suites brings back the glorious Victorian era- with candlesticks and fireplaces of that time- but there again- the patina of bygone times is subtly mixed with luxury and refinement. Outside- this small hill among the hills -meaning of Otahuna in Maori- unveils striking views over the Banks Peninsula- the Canterbury Plains and the hundred-year old garden- home to many rare and protected species.

We had our wedding at Otahuna, and it was absolutely wonderful. Everyone was impressed by the venue and its beautiful rolling grounds. The service staff were highly trained and very professional. Otahuna helped us with a lot of the planning for the wedding and connected us with some great suppliers. The food was exquisite. All made on site from fresh local ingredients. The breakfast was wonderful as well, there isn't a menu, the just made whatever we felt like eating!
