Matakauri Lodge Update

Matakauri Lodge has completed a large scale, soft refurbishment throughout the lodge and all room categories, spending nearly $1 million in the process.

Acclaimed interior designer Virginia Fisher has “edited and refined” the lodge’s offering by introducing a new colour palate of warm greys and straw yellows.

The soft refurbishment has included a repaint, new furniture and reupholstering of existing furniture including daybeds in the lodges Suite and Deluxe Suite rooms.

It has also included the repurposing of the Lower Lounge, which has become one of the lodge’s main dining spaces to allow guests to enjoy the room’s panoramic views of the The Remarkables, Cecil Peak and Walter Peak.
