An official update for you from Tony, Chris, Fiona and the Team at Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses.
At a little after midnight on the 14th November the Kaikoura area experienced a severe earthquake. All guests and staff of Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses, located just north of Kaikoura, are safe and well. Our buildings are designed to a high specification and suffered no structural damage – New Zealand’s building codes are among the world’s best.
Thank you to all the support we have received from the tourism industry, our partners and suppliers.
