As you wander into the grand lodge, what catches the eye is the awe-inspiring view over Palliser Bay, framed perfectly from every vantage point. Each room in the main lodge has a different feel, from large open lounges to smaller and more intimate areas such as the Palliser Room or Drawing Room. The antique furniture and over-sized fireplaces throughout the lodge capture the grandeur of yesteryear.
At the heart of it all you will find the Main Lounge, grand in design whilst remaining intimate in feel. Slide into an inviting sofa or armchair; take a moment to relax by conversing with fellow guests, or escaping into a good book.
The elegant Dining Room flows through to the impressive Country Kitchen and conservatory where large marble benches and an open kitchen offer guests the chance to discuss the chefs' secrets of the kitchen.
Walk through the French doors and step into another world; Wharekauhau's magical private courtyard and gardens. The immaculate croquet lawn and Petanque field border the inviting, sun-soaked courtyard, an ideal spot to enjoy a local Chardonnay or gather with new-found friends.
