Waitaki Wilderness is surrounded by native trees set alongside an ecosystem designed as a sanctuary to recharge, reset and rejuvenate.

With luxurious soft furnishings and a king size bed, fully equipped kitchen, ensuite with shower, air conditioning, and outdoor bath overlooking the stunning lake, these fully accessible chalets are the perfect place to gaze at the stars or partake in some yoga – mat provided.

There are two delicious meal options available as additional extras and the breakfast basket includes local bacon, free-range eggs, ciabatta bread, and fresh orange juice provisions for you to prepare at your leisure.

The platter + wine option is the perfect beginning to your Waitaki adventure.  Locally sourced treats include Whitestone cheeses, dip, chocolate, grapes, crackers, salmon, seasonal fruit, and a bottle of wine (Pinot of Gris).

To add a touch of Romance to your getaway, be sure to add one of our Romantic Delights gift boxes to your booking.
