A weekend getaway, for two!

Looking to recharge and get reinvigorated? only 2 hours 30 minutes north from Christchurch Airport or 1 hour 40 from Blenheim, Kaikōura is the perfect, easily accessible location for a relaxing weekend away!

Day One

Drive to Kaikoura, arriving ideally late morning allowing ample time to explore our beautiful coastal town on day one. 

To capture the beauty of the town you will call home for the next two nights, we recommend first experiencing it it all from above with a Helicopter flight.

Pick your choice of flight options, whether its whale watching, an alpine landing in the mountains or a tour to learn about the 2016 earthquake, they have you covered.

Indulge in an unforgettable New Zealand experience, and stay a couple nights in a heavenly Pure Pod nestled amongst nature. We have two Pure Pods to choose from in Kaikōura, but whichever you select we know you wont be disappointed. Each glass eco-cabin is designed to ensure you experience nature's show vividly. It's an unforgettable New Zealand experience that enables you to connect with nature and that special someone.

Day two

Wake up to the sound of bird song, and enjoy the peace and quiet over breakfast before embarking on the day. 

Only just opened in 2021, Hapuku Kitchen at its heart, is focused on reconnecting the kitchen to the land and sea, celebrating the abundant larder nature has to offer - taking inspiration from the wild Kaikōura landscape. Join Fi and Chris, for a hands-on, farm-to-table cooking experiences, a private cooking class or a seasonal evening feast at their Supper Club. 

Just down the road, head 5 minutes south for a spa treatment or wine at Kaikoura's very own Hapuku Lodge and Tree Houses. Known for its luxury offering the team at Hapuku Lodge will be sure to pamper you. 

After a day of indulgence, head back to your isolated slice of Kiwi paradise, at Pure Pods. At night, we recommend exploring the stars of the southern sky from the comfort of your luxury bed.

Day 3

After a relaxing two days, the weekend is almost over...

But before departing Kaikōura which literally translates into "to eat Crayfish" we recommend a must do Crayfish meal to line your belly before the drive home and a delicious lavender ice cream from Lavendyl Lavender Farm.
