We embrace sustainability. Organically sourced foods or those fresh from our garden are our preference for the breakfasts we provide.


Gourmet breakfast: NZ$35 per person, Breakfast Hamper: NZ$25 per person.

For those who want a tremendous start, our seaside gourmet breakfast is just what you are looking for… It is a true tasting sensation with organic bread and cake, fresh brewed coffee or tea, home made smoothies, local produces, cereals, fresh fruit, European flavours and home surprises…

A breakfast hamper is another option. It contains all the goodies for a perfect start of the day: toasts with a wide selection of spreads, juice, milk, cereals and muesli, yoghurt and fruit. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate are always on hand.

If, one day, you want to escape from all these tasty temptations, you’re more than welcome to prepare your own breakfast in the privacy of your Suite.

Meal options

There are different delicious restaurants at walking distance from our Lodge. You’re more than welcome to let us now your preference. We will accordingly book a table for you. Remember that most kitchens in Golden Bay close around 8.00pm.

After a long day of travelling it can however be a fantastic feeling if you can take time to relax and slowly soak up the atmosphere and scenery of your new accommodation without any worries of restaurant choices or alcohol checks. We offer the following meal options that you can enjoy in the privacy of our Lodge.

Picnic lunches

For those planning a daytrip in the Abel Tasman National Park or a guided 4x4 tour on Farewell Spit, it can be handy to book one of our picnic lunches. Our packed lunch includes: two delightful sandwiches, cheese and nuts, crackers, salad, fruit, muesli bar, muffin, cookies, juice and water. Price: NZ$29 per person.

Gourmet Platters

Our selection of platters is an ideal accompaniment to your pre-dinner drink or as a smaller dinner option after a long drive or late arrival in the Lodge.

Our platters include a selection of local cheeses, Golden Bay olive oil and a wide range of other delicious accompaniaments such as locally smoked salmon, fish pate, salami, dried fruit, grapes, baby tomatoes, olives, gherkens, chutney, home made jams, basil pesto and nuts. This is all served with a selection of breads, grissini and crackers. Price: NZ$28 per person.

Stone grill

If you want to enjoy dinner in the privacy of your own Suite, we can arrange a European style stone grill with a nice variety of meat courses, accompanied by home made salads and sauces. This option includes: stone grill dinner, dessert and ½ bottle of wine pp. Price: NZ$65 per person.


Because the supply of food delicacies in Golden Bay is quite limited, we need to source our ingredients often in the Nelson area, what means a two hours shopping trip from our Lodge… This makes it essential that you make your meal reservations at least one week before your arrival in our Lodge.
