Here at Mahana our focus is on fresh produce and locally sourced ingredients wherever possible with a feast of Marlborough fare firmly at the forefront of our culinary experience.
We offer you a fully catered option if you would like to have an evening meal, breakfast and packed lunch included with your stay.
Alternatively, you can opt for accommodation only which includes a complimentary continental breakfast. This features free range eggs from our hens, fresh fruit from our garden when possible, home-made muesli, toast and spreads and, of course, juice, tea and coffee. Cooked breakfast options are available for an additional cost.
Evening meals are enjoyed in the delightful conservatory alongside the historic homestead where our lodge guests gather in the evening and enjoy a three course meal together served at a long table. Your lodge hosts prepare the meal and serve it to you.
We have a good selection of beers and wines available, carefully chosen to showcase the best of Marlborough, New Zealand’s largest wine growing area and known internationally for its Sauvignon Blanc. You may bring your own if you wish but there is a corkage fee.
Packed lunches are also available to take on your day’s adventure, hiking or biking along the Queen Charlotte Track, or kayaking to a nearby beach. Our lunches are designed for hungry adventurers with sandwiches made from chunky home-made bread and home baking to give you plenty of energy for the day.
We are happy to cater for special dietary requirements including gluten free, vegetarian and dairy free diets. Please let us know in advance so we can be prepared for you. Please note that there are no facilities for guests to cook their own evening meal.

Mahana Lodge is standout. It is one of the best places I've stayed in NZ in the last 11 years, and I've travelled around a lot. Beautiful surroundings, well-kept property, great hosts, and comfy well laid out rooms. It is obvious the care that the owners
A wonderful, relaxed stay, and we could not recommend it more highly.
This is a great place to stay when you are hiking the Queen Charlotte track.
I was incredibly impressed and had a very memorable one night stay here while mountain biking the QC track with my partner. Our room (number 4) was just lovely, with a private balcony and a gorgeous view of the inlet.
As the name Mahana suggests – warmth, shelter and hospitality . . . the lodge and surrounding gardens are immaculate. It is a very pretty setting with a private beach. The views from the lounge and kitchen area are breath taking.
