Sitting snug in the idyllic surrounds of the Ahuriri Valley on the working Ben Avon Station, and covering 600 acres of rugged landscape, is the unique and iconic Lindis. Here, one can experience Kiwi hospitality at its best while enjoying the serenity and stillness of nature away from the stresses of modern-day life.

The Lindis has five suites located within the main lodge building, each featuring an outdoor area and fireplace. Expertly designed to blend into the landscape, it has a smooth curved roofline, which parallels the dramatic undulating mountains around it.

Inside, the lodge combines timber and rock with elegant and sophisticated designs, accentuating the bold beauty of the area. The artistic ceiling in the lounge evokes the sense of a chequered blanket suspended above you, adding a sense of warmth and security to the otherwise cool and spacious open-plan design. With glass panel walls, you are pulled into the rugged landscape that lays before you as you wake, bathe and relax.

Positioned in close proximity to the lodge, distinctively designed pods, enclosed with mirrored glass and floor-to-ceiling windows reflect and frame the spectacular environment.  Wooden interiors encompass soft furnishings and cosy bedding while outdoor bathtubs promise toasty relief in the winter, under a canopy of galaxies.

The restaurant makes use of ingredients that are sourced from their own garden and local farmers to create a menu inspired by the seasons. You can further relax knowing your pre-dinner drinks, dinner and afternoon tea are all included.

Its location, far from any light pollution, makes this the ideal place for stargazing. Hiking, mountain climbing, mountain biking, gliding, horse riding and fly fishing are more examples of the wide range of activities you can immerse yourself in here.
