An Award Winning Marlborough Sounds Resort

Established in 2000, Hopewell Lodge’s simple, comfortable accommodations, spectacular location, superb cuisine and warm hospitality have earned hosts Mike and Lynley countless accolades and awards, setting them apart from other resorts and hotels in Marlborough Sounds.

Surrounded by native forest and turquoise waters, Hopewell is not only affordable, but a perfect retreat for relaxing with opportunities to enjoy a variety of fun outdoor activities. When you’re not lazing on the beach with a good book, star gazing from a hammock or soaking in the hot tub after your massage, try a hike, bike, swim, kayak, fish or wade the bay for oysters and mussels. Walk the trails or sail the Sounds, seek indigenous birds and resident glowworms. Share outrageous gourmet pizzas with fellow traveller’s from all over the world in our exceptionally well equipped and spacious communal kitchen.

You’ll find Hopewell is peaceful, truly authentic and unbelievably friendly; exceeding the expectations of the most discerning, experienced globe trekker.
