Welcome to Kokonga Lodge, Bed and Breakfast Accommodation (the first operator in Central Otago to receive an Enviro Gold Award)

Kokonga Lodge was home to Sir Peter Jackson when he filmed “The Hobbit” in the dramatic scenery of the Maniototo Plains in Central Otago. Sir Peter wrote that he “loved” his stay at Kokonga Lodge. Now you can follow in the footsteps of New Zealand’s finest film maker. Experience the Maniototo, soak up the ambience of Kokonga Lodge and discover why this stunning area will feature in his next three films.

Whether you are biking or walking the Otago Central Rail Trail, fishing, ice skating, curling, gold-panning or exploring, stylish and supremely comfortable Kokonga Lodge is the perfect haven at which to stay.

Kokonga Lodge sits on a commanding elevated site surrounded by five acres of gardens and with panoramic views across the Maniototo – landscapes that have inspired writers and artists for more than 100 years. The lodge offers six beautifully furnished and supremely comfortable en suite rooms and stylish guest areas.

One of the greatest pleasures of a stay at Kokonga Lodge is the warm hospitality, quality service and superb meals provided by your hosts Dorothy and Malcolm. They have spent many years in the hospitality industry and will make your stay memorable and supremely comfortable.

“Malcolm and Dorothy are perfect hosts. We loved the Emersons, the telescope, the hens, the dinner, the breakfast, the fresh vegetables, the view, the rooms in fact everything about Kokonga Lodge. We will be back”
