Rooms at Hapuku Lodge & Tree Houses

There are 12 rooms at the lodge, seven wood-clad tree houses and the spacious Olive House Suite. All rooms have beautiful views of the surrounding mountains, the olive grove, or the Pacific coastline. You'll love the spacious spa baths with a view, the extra-large king beds and romance of the tree houses, which sit in a forest of manuka trees 10 metres from the ground and come with whirlpools. Wake up to sunlight streaming through the canopy windows in your very own natural sanctuary.
