The seasons shape the Maruia experience, as the nature of the valley and estate wonderfully changes throughout the year. The lodgings, special events and especially our cuisine constantly change to suit the season. This ensures that each visit will be both unique and fulfilling.

Maruia Kitchen

Our Food

Maruia River Retreat is a destination for nourishment as we aim to develop a locavore dining experience.

Our gourmet kitchen will offer selections with ingredients and produce sourced from our own organic kitchen-garden and from the best that the region has to offer. We place great emphasis on seasonal food with authentic flavours from the land, delivering fresh, simple and beautiful food. We serve delicious and nourishing cuisine for every season, with a passion for delivering a real food experience.

Throughout the year, in partnership with curated international and local chefs, the entire retreat transforms for a limited time into a gastronomical experience unlike any other.

For group bookings, specific chefs/cuisines are available upon request.
