Raetihi Lodge, Picton, New Zealand
Hidden away in a secluded bay in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds, Raetihi Lodge offers peace, tranquillity and comfort in stunning surroundings. Each of the 14 guest rooms opens out onto a private deck and you can choose from hillside rooms, those with a garden view or the ever popular sea view rooms, which boast magnificent views out to Kenepuru Sound. All the en suite rooms feature fluffy towels and bath robes, heated towel rails and have individual heating for cooler evenings.
Guests can enjoy excellent walking along scenic shores or fishing in the Sounds before relaxing back at the lodge with a glass of wine from the wide regional and international selection. There is also a sauna and spa pool and on-site aromatherapy massage for tired limbs. We always include the cooked breakfast option in our rates, which is perfect to set you up for the days exploring, and recommend that guests enjoy the delightful cuisine available for evening meals.
