Welcome to Knapdale Eco Lodge - a tranquil paradise only 10 minutes from Gisborne airport.
At our luxurious hide-a-way you can take a leisurely stroll around the lake through our well tracked forest, feed the animals or pick oranges for your breakfast juice. Or you can just relax and enjoy the superb food while enjoying award winning Gisborne wines overlooking a stunning landscape.
During your stay you don’t need to feel guilty about the small pleasures because Knapdale Eco Lodge is a sustainably managed operation that has won numerous awards including the Gisborne Rural Environmental Award.
Knapdale is also the perfect base to explore the Gisborne and East Coast region. The region has many forests, lakes and rivers, and breathtaking beaches with excellent surf. It’s also a must for wine and food lovers.
We look forward to your visit.
The luxury lodge is built from materials with as small an ecological footprint as possible. Most of the structural timber was sourced within a 20km radius and was milled by a local sawmill.
Choose to stay in our Kauri Suite or Nikau Room. Your stay includes breakfast, refreshments on arrival, pre-dinner local wines, and free internet and laundry facilities.
