Overview
Nestled on a secluded peninsula, Lake Okareka Lodge rests in splendid harmony with nature and its spectacular-by-any-standards surroundings. The five-star lodge is sheltered in calm waters on private sandy beaches, and every breathtakingly picturesque view is framed in native stone, natural timber and beautifully landscaped flora and fauna. Stylish architecture and casually elegant interiors create a welcoming and restful environment for those who want to get away from it all yet enjoy luxurious comfort. The entire lakeside Lodge and gated estate can be booked for exclusive use by a couple, family or single party of up to nine guests; or each of the three suites can be booked individually.
