Welcome To Dusky Lodge
Dusky Lodge located in Kaikoura is a great place to relax, unwind and take in the great views and spectacular sunsets from our extensive decks.
Our environmental ethos is gaining traction as we have solar power helping to run all our ensuite and ensuite family rooms along with a recycling system in place. We have the perfect set up for a family or group that is looking for budget accommodation while exploring the local region. In summer, soak up the sun at our resort style complex with a large saltwater outdoor heated pool and enjoy a choice of cuisine from our pool cafe with licensed bar. In winter, get cozy by the roaring fire, pick from our range of board games or relax in the spa. (Cafe closed summer 2022) Book direct with us to access student discounts, members of The Backpacker Group and Explore Our Backyard get special deals too. Dusky Lodge really is lodge quality at budget prices! We welcome all COVID vaccinated and non vaccinated guests.
