Furneaux Lodge

Furneaux Lodge - Accommodation

Hand-Picked Hotel

Peaceful paradise awaits at waterfront Furneaux Lodge, set in an idyllic location in the Marlborough Sounds.

Travel to family-owned Furneaux Lodge in the beautiful Marlborough Sounds and you’ll find yourself in paradise. Located at the head of Endeavour Inlet on New Zealand’s South Island, this is a place where time doesn’t exist. The lodge is the perfect place to relax and unwind, surrounded by a rollercoaster of forest-clad hills and nudging green-blue water. There’s a range of accommodation options available to suit your needs, from contemporary suites to basic hiker’s cabins and family-friendly cottages, all set among natural beauty. The lodge is only accessible by foot or bike on the Queen Charlotte Track, or by boat from Picton, giving you a real sense of being away from it all. Bring your appetite to the Furneaux Restaurant where you can tuck into local seafood dishes – the juicy mussels are a must – hearty burgers, or a platter to share. Pair with a regional wine to get a true taste of Marlborough. The sweeping sea views are the ideal accompaniment to a sumptuous meal.

Holiday location

Furneaux Lodge

Local Area

The Marlborough Sounds are a breathtakingly beautiful cluster of islands, inlets and sunken valleys at the top of New Zealand’s South Island. The region is draped in a huge variety of lush vegetation, from sub-tropical rainforest to a patchwork of flora and fauna. You won’t know where to point your camera first. Furneaux Lodge is situated at a point where Queen Charlotte Sound and Kenepuru Sound meet – since the depths are very different, you’ll notice a stark contrast in water colour. And what better perspective of the sparkling sea below than on an easy-going hike on the Queen Charlotte Track? This scenic bush walk meanders gently around the coastline to the lodge’s sister resort at Punga Cove. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the local wildlife – it’s common to spot kingfishers, fantails and the iconic flightless weka on your travels. Take to the water on a boat trip and you’ll likely see a passing pod of dolphins, little blue penguins, and stingrays. If you’re lucky, you might even spy an orca or a whale.
