What we mean by luxury eco-lodge

For some, ‘luxury’ means gold-plated taps and material sumptuousness and ‘eco’ means living off the grid without comforts. In New Zealand we tend to regard ‘luxury’ as being more about a special place, tranquility and freedom of time and choice, combined with service that is friendly and attentive to detail. Our ‘eco’ is a luxury wilderness experience set in beautiful native bush and surrounded by birdsong. The Resurgence is well suited to rejuvenating vacations that embrace relaxation, outdoor activities and indulgence in healthy food, to seek time, space and privacy to recover from the stresses of busy modern lifestyles.

Evenings at New Zealand’s Luxury Lodges are special occasions. At The Resurgence we are reknown for our relaxed dinner-party style where guests share good food, stories and many laughs. Join your Hosts and fellow dinner-guests at 7pm for a glass of Nelson wine and the chef's daily 'amuse bouche'.

Served dinner-party style in the lodge's dining room, daily menus are executed by our head chef, Ernst Hoekstra, to feature fresh local produce and organic vegetables from the lodge's kitchen garden all cooked with passion. Peter has selected the best wines from the Nelson region to compliment our dinner menus.
