New Zealand Has An Awesome Treehouse Resort

Those views though.

You just can’t beat that Kiwi countryside. Home to hot springs, hobbits and unrelenting solitude, our neighbours to the east sure do pack a punch – including these ridiculously cool treehouses we’re officially obsessed with.

Sitting smack bang in the middle of one of the most beautiful landscapes on earth, Hapuku Lodge is a five star eco-retreat located just a few k’s north of Kaikoura, on the South Island.


Reaching ten metres tall in the air, the treehouses sit above a canopy of native Manuka grove beside the spectacular Kaikoura Mountains. The lodge complements the environment so easily, it almost looks like nature built it.

Designed by a family of architects, Hapuku Lodge consists of five spacious lodge suites and five treehouses. Each room features locally hand-crafted furnishings and large windows that bring the tree canopy right into the bedroom. Each room has spectacular views of Kaikoura’s impressive mountains and the surf-washed Pacific coastline.


If you can tear yourself away from the views, the lodge also has in-house spa services, a gym, sauna, swimming pool, Wi-Fi and access to some of the region’s best walking trails.


Starting at $753AUD per night, room rates also include a three course meal and an à la carte breakfast.
