Massage and Health Treatments:
Our qualified aromatherapist will provide you with exceptional individual health treatments. We use only organic essential oils for their medicinal and therapeutic properties in massage, inhalation, topically, footbaths or as a bath treatment. Aromatherapy works on a holistic level by addressing the physical body, mind, emotions and spirit. Aromatherapy focuses on the development of wellbeing and enjoyment of life in a system of self-responsibility. It is a healing process in the capable hands of someone who can translate any concerns into a revitalizing and nurturing treatment.

Fine Dining:
Your fine dining experience will be created from locally sourced seasonal produce from the Canterbury and Banks Peninsula region, eg: Akaroa Salmon, Canterbury lamb, aged beef and pork.
Each quality cuisine course will be complimented by matching award winning local wines. The region is recognized for award winning Pinot and Riesling varieties. After your day enjoying the activities of Taurikura Lodge enjoy the ambience of the guest lounge with a pre-dinner cocktail. Then let your gourmet experience begin in the formal guest dining room.

Taurikura Lodge
  • The place and people were extraordinary. The setting was royal and the welcome was warm. For us who were strangers in the country were soon able to refer to the hosts as family / friends. The room was extremely comfortable. The menfolk enjoyed the jacuzzi. The environment made us spell bound. The host took us for a visit to the farm and we saw automated milking of cows. Mac their dog was not just friendly but wise as well. They received us far away from the lodge and drove us to the paradise on earth. They were the reason we made it on time to the tranzscenic train - drove us thro the right way and even helped us check in our luggage they went beyond their call and did us many favours. We actually felt like visiting family friends with our children and wished we could stay longer there. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE - you have to experience to believe it and how much ever is written it seems inadequate to express the awesome experience we had at the Taurikura lodge. 5
