A truly New Zealand-style experience awaits at Mahu Whenua. Located near Queenstown, the majestic beauty of towering mountains, lush valleys, and meandering rivers in the surrounding landscape will keep you enraptured.
Mahu Whenua is a luxurious country homestead for guests seeking total privacy and exquisite food and wine. With only four individual suites, you will easily feel like you are living within your own national park. Each suite is a magnificent private retreat for two. Large windows frame jaw-dropping, sweeping vistas across New Zealand’s raw natural beauty. Try taking in the views of mountains and Lake Wanaka while soaking in a deep tub.
Rustic design incorporates locally-sourced materials with modern features. Stone walls, wooden ceiling beams, and a mostly earth toned color palette keeps the natural theme going. Eco-conscious travelers can learn about the sustainable farming practices and native bird breeding programs at this eco-sanctuary. The majority of the land surrounding the homestead has been protected; appropriate, since the name Mahu Whenua translates to “healing the land.”
Creative chefs whip up exceptional cuisine, prepared with local produce and served with wine selected from the premium wine cellar. Before dinner, canapes and cocktails help you wind down for an evening of leisure.
Gather with other guests in the Homestead, featuring a farmhouse kitchen, living room, dining room, library, and game rooms. On a chilly evening, cozy up next to one of the two open fireplaces.
You can also opt to pack a picnic, heading beyond the property to absorb the scenery. Horseback riding, yoga, biking, and hiking all get you moving in the great outdoors. Sheep in these parts graze on grass so green that you will swear it can’t be real.
It would be a shame to visit New Zealand without sampling its wine. A helicopter transports you into the vineyards for tastings and returns you back to your retreat at Mahu Whenua.Request Information
