Unique Stays

Accommodation that offers a unique location, stunning scenery, or a downright cool or quirky place can be an experience in itself. 

Watch the stars from the comfort of your bed at one of the PurePods on Rakiura Stewart Island, or wake up to the sounds of nature while glamping at Te Anau Lakefront Backpackers. Ever wanted to stay the night in a train wagon or church? You can do just that at Te Anau Lodge or The Church 1914! If you want to indulge in luxury, we also got you covered. Enjoy delicious paddock-to-plate cuisine at Cabot Lodge in Fiordland, or take a relaxing bath in the outdoor hot tub at Beresford Height in The Catlins. Awe-inspiring views are all around you in Southland, and there are plenty of places to stay where you can sit back and enjoy the scenery. Experience the beauty and majesty of Fiordland National Park at the Milford Sound Lodge or stay at the stunning high-country station huts at Welcome Rock Trails

Find the most unique and unusual accommodation that is so much more than a place to sleep at night, and make your trip to Southland one to remember! 



Southland has an abundance of places to stay, offering plenty of variety, no matter your itinerary or budget.
