Marlborough Luxury Lodge Accommodation

Our focus is always on creating the most bespoke, comfortable and luxurious experience.

Designed by renowned architects, and built specifically to maximize and accentuate the surrounding scenery, The Sounds Retreat blends seamlessly into its surroundings, and allows ample opportunities for exploring the Marlborough region.

You will relish the total privacy and seclusion found at this luxury Marlborough lodge.

The guest suite is open-plan, with private access or through the main house, allowing you to choose the level of privacy or interaction at your discretion. 

The living space features panoramic glass doors leading to a spacious deck overlooking native bush and water. The constant views of the Queen Charlotte Sound are beautiful all year-round, as you soak in the hot tub, or relax with a glass of local wine.

As one of the premier luxury Marlborough accommodations, all the details are thought-out to combine perfect measures of style, comfort and decadence. You’ll find everything imaginable – and hopefully a few extra surprises you never imagined.
