THE LODGE

Situated above the Elephant Hill Winery Estate, Elephant Hill Lodge is an unsurpassed luxurious experience with breath-taking views over vines, the Pacific Ocean and the iconic Cape Kidnappers. Each room has been designed to nurture the heart and soul.

Nearly twenty years ago, my parents Reydan and the late Roger, fell in love with New Zealand and a piece of land on the beautiful coast of Te Awanga. Back then, it was merely a plot of bare land, quite an untidy deer farm that had been abandoned to the elements for decades.

Their vision for the land was simple: To create a world-class winery, restaurant and owners’ lodge of exceptional technical and artistic calibre, amidst the vines. The grapes would be the source of the best wines that Hawke’s Bay could produce, handcrafted and genuine.

By making the lodge available to select guests, I hope you experience the same fascination for this unique location and treasure in Hawke´s Bay as my parents have.

Enjoy your stay.
