Ngā Whare Mānatu is a unique retreat offering luxury accommodation above the beautiful boutique village of Geraldine. Nestled amongst native plants, stunning birdsong, views to the east coast sunrise and the amazing night sky, our vision is to provide you with a magical relaxing experience that showcases our natural environment and everything that connects us to our whenua (the land). Relax in your hot tub and enjoy the wonders of the stars then continue to view this magic from your bed through the large ceiling skylights and wake in the morning to incredible birdsong while watching the sunrise on the East Coast of South Canterbury.
Our whares are designed to reflect our natural environment and have been built with a mix of natural and raw materials, such as exposed steel beams, architectural timber walls and ceilings, natural tile floors on the inside and are clad in corten steel with exposed aggregate concrete decks outside, which house the stainless steel cedar hot tubs.
All units have underfloor heating, heat pumps and reticulated gas for endless hot water in your hot tub or walk in shower.
"The view and location is perfect, it has such a secluded feel and look, yet it is only a 5min drive to the township! The outdoor bath is my favorite and you never have to worry about it running out of hot water!! It also has the best view of the sun rise. Have been in both the summer and winter and each time was just so relaxing. It truly is worth every cent."- Tish
"This was the best accommodation I have ever stayed in. Such a treat. The location, the privacy, the comfort, the outdoor bath, the warmth....everything was perfect. I left feeling so relaxed."- Melanie
"The place was absolutely stunning. Amidst the nature we could hear the birds chirping and the rain pouring on the skylight while we were cozy inside the room. The hot tub and the views made it even more memorable. All the ammenities were set to a high standard to give a feeling of a luxurious escape. Highly recommended!"- Dhrishti
"This was one of the highlights of our trip. It was peaceful and modern. Watching the stars from bed with the sunroof, and chilling in the hot tub for hours (the bath salts are amazing)."- Chloe
