Fodor's Review

In World Heritage rainforest beside the Moeraki River a 20-minute bushwalk from the Tasman Sea—the superb surroundings and passionate eco-guides make this lodge an ideal place to relax in and learn about the amazing natural environment here. This place is about more than meals and a bed. On-site naturalists introduce you to native plants and animals. Rates include a full breakfast, four-course dinner, use of canoes and kayaks, and two short, guided walks or kayak trips. There are 24 Rainforest Rooms and four (even more luxurious) Riverview Rooms. Two to three night stays are encouraged, to really get the essence of the surroundings.
