About Us

A very warm welcome to WANAKA SPRINGS LODGE!

We look forward to the opportunity of hosting you at Wanaka Springs Lodge and we would be delighted to assist in making your holiday in Wanaka and in the South Island of New Zealand the best it can be.

You may well be wondering as to the origin of the name Wanaka.  The name Wanaka according to folk lore is a corruption of Oanaka, which means “place of Anaka”, Anaka being the name of an early Maori chief of this district.

We arrived in New Zealand in January 2005 From England with our 2 Children Chris and Abby having before only read about this beautiful country in books. Fraser comes from a purchasing and hospitality background and Anne a registered nurse. These two careers gave us a passion for entertaining and meeting new people. We settled in Auckland for 10 years and the children finished their schooling there to. We love New Zealand and decided to see more of it and Wanaka Springs lodge became available we jumped at the chance to move to Wanaka where we fell in love with the place and the people very quickly.

Our aim is to also help you fall in love with this beautiful country, it's heritage and people. What better place for this to happen than breath-taking Wanaka.

Sorry we cannot take children under the age of 10 years due to the 2 springs running through our gardens.
