Perfect for exploring Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers
Set at the edge of Westland Tai Poutini National Park, this well-appointed hotel is an ideal base from which to explore Franz Josef Glacier. It is also just a half an hour drive from Fox Glacier. Popular local activities include guided glacier walks, heli-hikes, eco rafting, bush walks, kayaking and horse riding. The hotel is also in close proximity to the only indoor ice climbing wall in the Southern Hemisphere!
After an activity-filled day, unwind in one of the hotel’s four spa pools, or head to the Amaia Luxury Spa – which is set in the Te Waonui Forest Retreat – for a soothing treatment. Choose from two restaurants offering à la carte and buffet options with an emphasis on local dishes such as West Coast whitebait, Westland lamb rump and Whataroa home-smoked chicken breast. Views from The Glasshouse Restaurant provide a beautiful backdrop to your dining experience. Indulge in quality wines by a roaring fire at The Moa Bar.
The rooms are located in two wings and include free Wi-Fi. Standard Rooms are set in the older Graham wing while the more spacious Superior Rooms are located in the more modern Douglas wing.
At the edge of the Westland World Heritage Park and adjacent to the relaxing Glacier Hot Pools. Just a short walk from local restaurants and shops.
