Fresh & Local
We embrace sustainability. Organically sourced foods or those fresh from our garden are our preference for all the meals we provide.
Our lodge is offering two breakfast options:
• A breakfast hamper delivered to your suite (12-hour notice)
• A gourmet style breakfast in our lounge (24-hour notice)
Our home-made breakfasts are not included in your Suite price. This gives you completely freedom to create your own breakfast or to order one from us.
All our Suites are fully equipped allowing you to prepare your own breakfast if desired. If one day you want to escape from all our tasty temptations, this means you are more than welcome to do so!
If you like to enjoy one of our home-made breakfasts for the first morning, please order your breakfast online in combination with your Suite and Excursion preferences.
Breakfast Hamper in your Suite
Our beautifully presented continental hamper contains all the goodies for a perfect start of your day. It is full of healthy and homemade goodies: organic cereals, yogurt and fruit. This all to be followed by the smell and taste of freshly oven baked bread and croissants/pastries and a nice selection of spreads. Not to forget our local delicacies like cheese, meat or salmon. Coffee and tea are always on hand. This all in a full room service, delivered to your Suite at the time of your preference. Price: NZ$ 28.00 per person.

After a long day of travelling or outdoor activities, you may prefer a smaller and more relaxing dining option to slowly soak up the lovely atmosphere of our Lodge.
