About | Lochmara Lodge
Welcome to Marlborough’s most unique attraction and accommodation experience.
Lochmara is a locally owned and operated small waterfront resort with your hosts Niki and Chris ready to welcome you all. Lochmara Lodge is a resort with no road access, located in Lochmara Bay, Queen Charlotte Sound, Picton, New Zealand. Lochmara has 14 rooms, a waterfront cafe, and is set on 11 acres of land with plenty of activities to keep all our guests entertained.
Arrive at the Lodge via a well-maintained side track or by water. Once here, discover bush walks on our character filled 11-acre property, endangered species breeding programmes, information panels on the native flora and fauna of the Marlborough Sounds, Underwater Observatory and sculpture trail and art gallery.
Relax in a hammock, indulge in a spa or massage and enjoy the best of Marlborough’s food and wine at our licensed restaurant. Return to the track, or pick up a kayak for the final stage to Anakiwa. Day visitors are also welcome to explore our property or enjoy a meal at our café.
Cruise-and-walk day trip options are available from Mistletoe Bay or Picton. “Once discovered… never forgotten…”
