Fodor's Review

Generous use of glass and balconies off each luxurious accommodation capture magnificent views over the Motueka River, with a peep of Kahurangi National Park's Mt. Arthur thrown in, all accented with lofty wooden spaces and river-stone pillars. Guest rooms have hand-crafted wooden furniture and posh bathrooms, two with spa bath, while public areas include the sunroom, lounge and dining area, Matai Bar, and games room. Dinner and breakfast are included in the rates. You can drive here, though helicopter is the more popular transport mode for most guests. After managing luxury lodges throughout Australia, owners John and Kate Kerr built their own piece of paradise in the middle of Nelson fly-fishing country and can arrange fishing expeditions (the main draw) and other tours to Abel Tasman National Park, Lord of the Rings mountain movie locations, and Nelson's wineries, art studios, and restaurants. Minimum stay is two nights.
