Rimu Lodge

Explore the untamed wilderness of the South Island’s west coast.

Rimu Lodge is a boutique hotel surrounded by magnificent nature yet close to the small town of Hokitika with its award-winning cafes. It is architecturally designed to take advantage of the wonderful views over the Hokitika River Valley.

The two ground floor rooms open onto a large deck whilst the upstairs rooms have access to the main deck from the ‘great room’.
