Ahuriri Valley

The Lindis


High country hospitality

Blending into the sublime Ahuriri Valley floor and flanked by New Zealand’s Southern Alps, The Lindis is a contoured slice of luxury.

The lodge features five handsome suites, the Great Hall for dining, a bar, lounge areas and a games room, all finished in the same beautiful aesthetic and designed for the utmost comfort and luxury under sweeping wooden ceilings. Outside find three mirrored glass pod suites that make the most of the views and privacy.

The kitchen celebrates local produce, foraged treats and Kiwi wine, refined yet hearty fuel for exploring the area on horse rides, hikes and fishing expeditions.
