When staying with us at OMAKA LODGE, it’s the little things which make the difference …

…little things like a soothing night’s sleep, a delicious meal, a luxuriant soak in a spa bath, having your little friend stay with you (by prior arrangement), relaxing indoors or out, or exploring the glorious gardens or local attractions. It’s these little things and more which add up to a great stay at Omaka Lodge, a tranquil oasis amidst New Zealand’s Forgotten World.


“To sleep perchance to dream” – Shakespeare

Sleep is to be enjoyed at Omaka Lodge, with top-quality beds and no sound but the gentle rustle of luxurious linen.  You’ll wwaken in the morning to melodious birdsong, refreshed and renewed for the day ahead, whatever it brings.

Eat at Omaka Lodge


“Let food be thy medicine” – Hippocrates

The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink and somebody to love you. Omaka Lodge can satisfy the first two of these, and Grayson & Katie, our little friends, will love you unconditionally.

“Soap is to the body, what laughter is to the soul” – Yiddish Proverb

Soothe the dust of everyday life from your soul via a soak in the spa bath or in the mains-pressure massage-head shower. Lather up, rinse off, dry off with our fine cotton towels. Feel your soul become restored.
