Raetihi Lodge offers an All-inclusive Exclusive Use private boutique lodge on the waterfront in the Marlborough Sounds, South Island, New Zealand.

Exclusive Use on the 50-acre estate includes: Accommodation, all Meals, Private Chef/Staff and we accommodate between 10 – 28 guests.

Human connections are the foundation of what we offer with our All-Inclusive Exclusive Use facility at Raetihi Lodge. 

 

When the Lodge is not being used for Exclusive Use bookings, we also offer limited bookings for our All-Inclusive Stay & Dine Packages.

These are available many weekends throughout the year, together with more flexible Stay & Dine dates that are offered over the Summer/Autumn/New Year period. 

 

The pandemic taught us our soul craves connection, family and friends.  Now is a good time to surround yourself with family and friends to create the moments that should not go uncelebrated.

Nature in the Marlborough Sounds has been resting and rejuvenating and is now inviting us back to explore and remind us of her beauty once again.

Welcome to Raetihi Lodge All-Inclusive Exclusive Use facility

P1040136 2

We invite our guests to experience Raetihi Lodge through new endeavours, whether it’s to:

  • reunite family to nurture connection, a sense of self and belonging, joy and laughter
  • be surrounded by old friends, share stories and celebrate significant birthdays, small intimate weddings or occasions whilst being at one with nature
  • be together in a space to inspire colleagues and creativity

We want our guests to feel the intangibles of serenity and peace derived from our surroundings. With your own private chef, house staff and scrumptious meals, you’ll feel like they’re sitting in the comfort of their own home whilst being spoilt with the food and service of a boutique hotel.

With this in mind we invite you to absorb, connect, reflect and be mindful in the beautiful surroundings and facilities at Raetihi Lodge.
