My wife and I just spent several days at Westhaven in mid-April. What a gem! The lodge is set on a spectacular 1000 acres and has every luxury. We took a fun half day sea kayack tour, hiked several of the trails and just relaxed. The family proprieters could not have been nicer and more attentive. Food was also very... More

We began our honeymoon at Westhaven and do not think we can put into words how incredible everything was. It was like being on another planet. The most beautiful scenery you have ever seen, you can hike for hours and hours to different beaches, cliffs, tropical forests and rolling hills (all owned by westhaven) and so quiet. The hosts were... More

For Christmas 2013/2014, which we spend 18'596 km away from home, we were looking for a special location. It had to be peaceful, in the middle of nature but with all luxury, good food and hosts running their Lodge with a mix of professionalism and passion. What we found in Westhaven was by far exceeding our expectations (and it is... More

My wife and I will be departing tomorrow following a 2 night stay. Once you are in Golden Bay and pass through Nelson then Collingwood you must find a mostly gravel road up to the Lodge. Let me begin by saying the experience at Westhaven is worth the work to get here. The facility which was constructed by the family... More

West Haven Luxury Lodge, West Hell is more like it. In addition to meeting this lovely three generation family, you may stay in a well-appointed beautiful lodge, and yes, the views are quite pretty. What is not clear on the nicely produced website are a few important details. The road to this place is a nightmare of hairpin turns, on... More

Dear Madam, I am so sorry you felt this way. Your husband was not fully informed (did not read thoroughly) about the road, which is described in detail, with photos on the webpage and in directions we especially sent to you. The road is SAFE and very well maintained. It is regular School Bus Route. When you arrived, you were... More

Just stayed at the cottage (cheaper option) attached to the lodge. Very friendly hosts and will book again to stay at the lodge itself. Was able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner through the lodge provided by "2 Monica" (mum and daughter). If you are after a resort with large grounds, isolation, beautiful surrounds and hosts who truly are there... More

We stayed at Westhaven Lodge for 3 nights recently and it was only just enough time to hit the highlights. We will go back and stay longer and do some fishing, kayaking and further walks. We stay at 2 lodges in NZ each year and Westhaven is by far on every count the best lodge we have stayed at. The... More

It is not necessary to repeat the compliments that have already been expressed but we would like to endorse these. It is a credit to the family who have worked so hard to create such a superb place and to appreciate it properly it is necessary to stay at least two nights. We booked a suite which we felt was...
