Within walking distance of the stores in Franz Josef Village and just a short drive from many of the island’s top attractions – including the famed Franz Josef Glacier – this is the ideal base for exploring.

After active days exploring this unique destination, return to the retreat and its Monsoon Restaurant & Bar, the perfect spot for enjoying dinner on the deck or cosying up in front of the fireplace with a glass of wine.


Stay in a charming Deluxe Tree Hut, nestled amid the rainforest and featuring a king bed with pristine linen and plush pillows, a large en-suite with rain shower and underfloor heating, a Nespresso coffee machine, breakfast-making facilities and a TV. With a guaranteed late 12pm checkout included, it’s everything you need for a cosy escape with someone special.

Deluxe Lodge Upgrade: Enjoy the luxury of more space and a generous outdoor deck when you upgrade to a Deluxe Tree Lodge. Furnished with one king and one single bed, these secluded lodges can sleep up to three people.


On every morning of your stay, you’ll receive a gourmet continental breakfast hamper to prepare in the privacy of your tree house. Set yourself up for the day with freshly baked bread, cereals, muffins, fruit, juice and preserves.

After long days exploring, return to Monsoon Bar for one nightly drink per person. Choose between a glass of house wine, beer, spirit or soft drink.

NZ$50 food and drink credit per room is also included in your escape. Treat yourself and someone special to a bottle of wine to share or dine on delicious dishes such as gin and lemon cured salmon, gourmet pizzas and burgers, salads and New Zealand lamb.
