Kaikoura experienced a 7.5 magnitude earthquake on November 14, 2016. I am happy to let every one know that Hapuku Lodge have reopened for business.

This has to be one of the best that I have had the pleasure of working in and staying throughout the world. The attention to detail is fantastic, a credit to the Wilson family.

Kaikoura needs our support, if you are intending to travel to New Zealand and especially the South Island, this is one area that you need to visit, the history here is out of this world. You can do the Maori tours, Whale Watching, Quad bike tour, (not to be missed), Wine tour, Cave exploring. There is an abundance of activities to do while in Kaikoura. I have been informed that the Maori tours have all been cancelled, due to the earthquake, but I am sure that they should all be up and running around February 2017!




If you want to just chill then please stay at Hapuku Lodge, put your feet up, get pampered, enjoy cuisine in fact just be yourself, you will not want to leave.



The cuisine around Kaikoura is incomplete without enjoying tasteful seafood dishes!. Kaikoura is a mecca for seafood lovers dishesfrom grouper, cod, mussels, papa (abalone) and of course the towns namesake, Crayfish. Other delights such as oysters, scallops, and whitebait which are seasonal.
