"The best on the West Coast", that's what guests say! The best for luxury accommodation, stunning mountain to sea views, delicious cuisine, delightful hospitality, insightful guided nature tours and located central to the West Coast best scenic attractions and activities.

30 minutes drive south of Hokitika en route to Franz Josef Glacier, Paramata Lodge is sophisticated and spacious, with elegant handcrafted contemporary style, artworks, sculptural garden, library and piano. Three beautiful guest bed rooms with superking/king size beds, large ensuites, deep bath and several decks, this is boutique accommocation at its best.

Located in a natural paradise with forest, waterways and beach providing diverse wildlife adventures right beside the lodge. Ask us about guided walks, bird tours, farm or kayak tours, heli flghts, the new cycle trail or NZ fly fishing. There's more too, so you'll need several days. Hosted by two well informed New Zealanders, Kathy heads two conservation groups while Neil is the artist, with a deep respect for nature they will show you their sustainable wilderness lifestyle beside rare old growth forest.  

May 2019, it’s autumn and still warm enough for masses of tui, bellbirds and waxeyes to perform their breath-taking flights, flutters and gorgeous songs all around the lodge. Neil’s tree plantings now bring so much joy to us, the birds and guests! While it’s still warm why not join us for a weekend relaxing? Winter is coming and the tui will leave, the nights will cool and the calm sunny days will bring beautiful reflections, mountains in snow and at the lodge a warm and cozy place to lay your head and dream. Ask about our special reduced rates this season! 

Summer ahead will be busy so book now! Two nights is recommended by guests who want to enjoy the local sights as well as the peace and beauty at the lodge.  Ask about our multi-night discount when you book at least one month in advance, directly with the lodge. (Not available over the Christmas & New Year period or to agents).
