About Hapuku Lodge & Treehouses

Weddings and events at Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses are private and intimate.

The property is well suited for small gatherings of up to 30+ people. With creativity and planning, we can cater for larger events. There are several venue options to choose between including a new dedicated conference event room, gardens and a large dining room. The dramatic landscape surrounding Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses provides an inspiring setting for any gathering.

The Lodge’s convenient location and multiple transportation choices make Kaikoura easy to reach. With Tree House bedrooms and wireless internet, the accommodation at Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses is somehow both romantic and pragmatic. Our open kitchen and large dining room offer an entertaining venue for any sized group. Within Hapuku’s food philosophy of using simple, fresh and flavourful ingredients, our talented chefs can create menus to the needs of each group.


As a family of architects and builders, we designed Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses to be a contemporary country hotel.

Not limiting our design efforts to the building, we also designed and handcrafted - with local wood-working friends - the majority of the furniture throughout the Lodge including the custom-designed beds that some guests say are "the most comfortable beds in the South Island.”

We began in 2003 with six guest rooms in the Main Lodge and the Olive House. In 2006 we added the five luxury Tree Houses. In 2009 we remodelled the Main Lodge converting the six rooms into four - two Suites, one Lodge Room and the Hapuku Room - and also added a lap-pool and sauna.

“A SLICE OF HEAVEN - We stayed at Hapuku Lodge for our wedding night and also had our small wedding ceremony there. It was the most beautiful place we had ever seen. The rooms are just perfect and it almost feels unreal being up in a tree in a luxury room. You can’t believe it until you see it. Even though the lodge was fully booked we barely noticed any other guests there, the atmosphere was truly peaceful. The staff was really helpful, warm, kind and went out of there way to help make this evening special for us. We can not recommend Hapuku Lodge enough and we can not wait to go back and celebrate our anniversary there next time we visit NZ. Worth every penny!” - Kidjan and Alexander - Norrköping, Sweden
