CELEBRATIONS OF ALL KINDS

We all have times in our lives that we want to celebrate and make memorable for ourselves, and those that surround us.

Raetihi Lodge can provide the perfect exclusive venue for corporate, private or family groups. Our venue is ideal for corporate retreats or conferences; for the celebration of special events and occasions, or for extended-family holidays and reunions to ensure your family bond stays strong.

Our Lodge is nestled amongst 50 acres of private Sounds native bush within a location of unrivaled natural beauty touching the shores of the Kenepuru Sound in the scenic Marlborough Sounds. Picturesque views overlooking the calm blue waters of the Kenepuru Sound and magical sunsets over the Marlborough hills guarantee to impress your guests, and provide a sought after backdrop for those special function photos.

With a selection of meeting and dining spaces indoors and out, Raetihi Lodge offers accommodation for up to 30 guests on-site and can cater for sit-down meal functions for up to 50 guests and 70+ guests for hand around cocktail snacks & drinks.

Groups may choose to arrive by their own or chartered boat and then moor on one of Raetihi’s Guest moorings. Another option is to drive and park your car at Te Mahia jetty, then avail our Miss Raetihi Lodge Guest Transfer boat across the 10- minute scenic ride to Raetihi Lodge; there is the option to drive in, fly in by floatplane from Picton, or light aircraft from Wellington, Nelson or Picton landing on the Nopera airstrip just 4 kms away, or land on Raetihi’s private helipad by helicopter!

Sometimes that special celebration calls for a venue that can be exclusively yours for the duration, that’s when you need to look our website Exclusive Use page.
