Environment. At Huntaway Lodge and Retreat we live in the most amazing natural environment and act with the local community as Kaitiaki(caretakers) to cherish and preserve our unique heritage.
We aim to reduce the adverse effects on the environment through sustainable and environmental practices without compromise to guest comfort and enjoyment.
People. Staff employed at the lodge have all joined us from the local community. We use local companies to provide our guests with tour services and assorted leisure activities.
Products. Produce, furnishings, materials, stationary, toiletries and services are purchased where possible from local suppliers and growers with an emphasis on eco friendly and environmentally responsible production. The gardens are gradually being restocked with native plantings to encourage wildlife. You will see a variety of birds, butterflies, native owl, tui and the most beautiful starry skies. An increasing amount of herbs , vegetables, fruit and flowers are harvested from our garden. We recycle and compost.
Water Supply. Rainwater is collected and filtered for drinking and household purposes. The Enviroflow system then filters waste water for use in the gardens. Appliances are chosen with water and energy saving features a priority.
We appreciate our guests support.
