We arrived after 8 hours on a 25 km walk as part of the Queen Charlotte Track. We were warmly met at the jetty by Liane, and that welcoming approach characterised all of the staff during our 2 night stay. The lodge is secluded, relaxing and well appointed.

Would strongly recommend to walkers to build in a day's break, as we did, to recharge our batteries in this beautiful place. Had the best massage ever from Juli - still feeling thankful for how good our bodies feel after what was a very long walk for us. And there are plenty of activities on offer, if you wish.

The food was superb. Best seafood chowder. The Brazilian and Chilean chefs add to the range and quality of the menu choices. Recommend the pork belly, the salmon and the lamb shanks.

Not surprisingly, there are guests who come only for the dining, or the relaxing.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights as a break in between our busy visits to the north and south islands. The rooms are warm and cozy with most having a beautiful view of the bay. Service was impeccable while still personal and friendly. The food simply outstanding both in presentation and quality. Lots of places to take long walks to enjoy the scenery and plant life. This was a great place to relax and wind down. Loved it !

Wow, we only visited for lunch by water taxi from another Kenepuru accomodation but Raehiti is sensational.
A lovely welcoming jetty, beautiful grounds.
We were warmly greeted and even though we were early we were asked to choose any table inside or outside that suited us. Very lovely waitress and helpful with wine choices.
The meals were delicious and of a very good quality. I don't think I've ever enjoyed such a great calamari salad, prices very reasonable. After lunch we were invited to wander the grounds and come back for coffee or dessert, we lounged on deck chairs in the shade for 1/2 hour then returned to share dessert.
The decor was just beautiful, very tasteful but warm and welcoming. We so wish we were staying there and didn't have to return to our own accomodation!
We are looking forward to visiting again and staying!!

Raetihi is a bit hard to get to, but it's definitely worth the trip! The view is pretty incredible. And I can't say enough about the staff, they were so helpful and friendly, it really added to the experience. They helped us plan some great day trips in advance.

Room Tip: Sea-view is worth it

This part of New Zealand is extremely beautiful. Raetihi Lodge is a little tough to get to although I didn't find the windy drive up bad at all. From previous reviews I was worried. There is an airport 5 minutes away and not expensive to fly....wish we had known that before we arrived. The breakfast is very good, I do think they could offer a few more options for lunch and dinner, like soup or hamburgers. Food was good but not so good we wanted to eat there all the time. There is no where else to go for food so plan accordingly and bring a few appetizers and bottles of wine. Extremely nice owner and friendly staff. Rooms very quiet, clean and comfortable. They even took the effort to replace all room fridges with expensive French ones which make no sound. Birds in the early morning are lovely to listen to. Wears socks when hiking, the sand flies like ankles. Water was warm enough to swim, sound calm one day windy the next.

Room Tip: Splurge for the seaside rooms, they are slightly bigger and more comfortable than the garden view.
