The climate in New Zealand is incredibly pleasant, with warm and balmy summers and cold crisp winter months with wonderful clear, blue skies. The warmer high-season months of November to April are perfect for outdoor exploration. The colder months of June to August are the best time to ski.
Both North and South Islands are drier on the east coast, rather than on the west, where mountain ranges act as a trap for the moisture-rich winds from the Tasman Sea. It is also worth remembering that it is usually a few degrees cooler on the South Island than the North Island and as New Zealand has a maritime climate, the weather can change rapidly.

Nestled in the pristine Ahuriri Valley in New Zealand’s South Island, you will find The Lindis. New Zealand’s newest luxury lodge has been created for you to unwind and relax while taking in the surrounding idyllic setting.
Epitomising the Kiwi notion of “manaakitanga” meaning hospitality, The Lindis has been designed to be a place where guests can relax and unwind in nature, slowing down from the fast-pace of everyday life whilst being enclosed by pristine wilderness.
Encircled by a rugged landscape of wetlands, tussock land and mountains and adjacent to three conservation parks, The Lindis not only provides guests with exceptional views both day and night but has also been architecturally designed to mirror the landscape it resides in. With a rolling, undulating timber roof reflecting the neutral tones of the environment, The Lindis’ design offers a sense of seclusion and privacy, far from prying eyes of the masses - a secret lodge built to define the essence of wild luxury.
Offering two master suites and three lodge suites featuring contemporary furnishings and luxury amenities the décor at The Lindis exudes bespoke quality. Rooms feature panoramic windows allowing guests uninterrupted views of the landscape beyond whilst individual fire-places and faux- fur throws create a unique sense of warmth and comfort.
Food and wine at The Lindis is equally as impressive and the daily menu’s pay homage to the wide variety of local produce the Central Otago and Canterbury region of the South Island is known for.
Activities from the Lindis are abundant. Located near to one of New Zealand’s most renowned fly-fishing areas a wide variety of fishing-related activities are available whilst guests can also partake in horse trekking rides, cycling tours, and exhilarating 4WD tours. The abundant wine producing region of Central Otago borders the Ahuriri Valley so vineyard visits are possible to arrange whilst the adventure capital of Queenstown is only a short journey away.
In an ever fast moving and stressful world, The Lindis will give you the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the stillness of nature in modern, sophisticated luxury, all while enjoying Kiwi hospitality at its best.
The Lindis has two master suites and three lodge suites which can either be booked individually or on an exclusive basis with all featuring panoramic views across the wilderness beyond. Each room has been designed using natural materials from wood to stone and features luxurious high quality furnishings and fine custom-made linens alongside bespoke fireplaces and deep free-standing baths.
With an uninterrupted view of the Ahuriri Valley, the lodge suites offer refined high-country luxury with the most sumptuous furnishings.
Slow down and enjoy the stillness of nature in modern, sophisticated luxury with a Master Suite at The Lindis. Indulge in one of the most generously proportioned suites and enjoy extra room to relax. The two Master Suites both feature a spectacular view of the Ahuriri Valley, a private sitting area both indoors and outdoors, your own private ensuite, super king-sized bed, double sided gas fire place and a luxurious bath tub.
The Lindis accepts children although there are no specific childcare facilities.
