Congratulations on opening Tiritiri Lodge.
It is absolutely beautiful and you should be extremely proud of it.
We had one of the best holidays I can remember. I couldn’t believe that Tiffany turned our handpicked cherries and mushrooms into such gourmet treats, whilst you and Denis made us feel so at home.

We were so spoilt at Tiritiri Lodge that the rest of our honeymoon found it hard to compete. You made our time with you incredibly special, so that Tiritiri Lodge and Wanaka now hold a very special place in our hearts and memories.
We look forward to being able to come back for a repeat visit. In the meantime, we're singing your praises to all our friends.
From the minute we walked through the front door and saw the elegant foyer and the grand piano it was luxury, luxury, luxury. We thought the first night of delicious pre-dinner drinks with Tiff's exquisite oysters in a subtle Thai sauce, followed by a dinner which included melt in your mouth venison accompanied by wonderful local wines and then into bed with the world's finest linen could not be improved upon... how wrong we were! It went on and on and on - a great walk in the mountains with the reward of a light delicious picnic, and then back to the Lodge where our personal masseuse awaited us. Each night Tiff produced a beautiful meal, Steph and Denis produced more splendid local wines, Denis serenaded us on the grand piano and then to bed in that finest linen.
And I haven't even mentioned Tiff's breakfasts - so good they were the only thing that would get me out that bed with that linen. Would we go back? Absolutely!

The very short stay in this natural environment was definitely the highlight of our trip in the South. The scenery as well as the hospitality we could enjoy in the Tiritiri Lodge will always stay in our memory. We would love to come back and stay longer!

What a stunning lodge in beautiful Lake Wanaka. We could not have imagined a more caring & thoughtful welcome. Thanks for a good three days!
Rhys and Vanessa, London UK
Thank you both for a wonderful stay and all the great advice. It has been a perfect ‘rest period’ in an otherwise hectic honeymoon. All the best for the future here!
P.S. We wish we could have stayed longer.
