  • Otahuna LodgeTai Tapu, New ZealandWell before you pull into the circular gravel drive,lodge owners Myles and Hall are standing on the frontsteps eager to welcome you to their recently acquired,resplendently restored Victorian manor. An intricatelyhand-carved kauri wood staircase leads from the old-world parlour to the upper level and seven classic,sumptuously furnished suites. Although each has itsown layout and décor, all feature original fireplaces,reading nooks, stained glass windows and deep soakingtubs. Fresh flowers, soft classical music and a sheepskinrug placed by the bed at turndown are some of thesmaller details that Myles and Hall insist upon – andthis is what keeps Otahuna a cut above the rest. Apartfrom the accommodation itself, the two big drawshere are the food and the gardens. The two go handin hand because outstanding head chef Jimmy pluckssome eighty per cent of the ingredients for his menusfrom Otahuna’s extensive grounds, which support fruit,vegetables, herbs and livestock. If you’re lucky, Jimmy’shomemade prosciutto will feature in one of the disheson your five-course degustation menu. Produce aside,the gardens and woodlands themselves attract dayvisitors and locals stream in from nearby Christchurchin early spring to view the annual explosion of daffodilsfor which Otahuna Lodge has been famous since 1895.www.otahuna.co.nz travel&living 63
