About this listing
If you are someone with vision, that makes things happen when they see an opportunity, you are going to want to look at this.
Whether you are thinking of starting a Luxury Trout Fishing Lodge, Spa/Beauty Resort, a Conference Centre, pushing the Café or Restaurant, or even a Training Centre of some sort, the options are vast. This 197 Ha stunning property really is a blank canvas, awaiting someone with the smarts to take it to the next level.
Perfectly positioned on the Shenandoah Highway just 2 hours scenic drive from Nelson city or 3 ½ from Christchurch International Airport, The Maruia River Lodge is unique in the area offering luxury accommodation in a remote beautiful location, yet still within easy commuting distance from two main centres.
Fly fishing from the Maruia Lodge gives tourists and locals' access to some of the best rivers and streams in New Zealand. The Maruia River is one of the most famous Brown Trout Rivers in the world. This is a great river for the novice or intrepid angler and with the lodge having approximately 2kms adjacent to river frontage you don't have far to go to experience the thrill of landing that trophy trout!
If nature walking or hunting is more your interest the large native Beech forest on the western side of the property offers boundless opportunities for exploring native fauna and flora and numerous waterfalls, as well as the odd Stag or Boar rooming the property.
It is all about relaxation, the chance for tourists to immerse themselves in the beauty and tranquillity of the Lodge and surroundings.
The facilities are all here ready and waiting for you to pick up the reigns and swing into action with developing and running your own business in this fabulous part of the countryside. With prospects for multiple business streams, the potential is remarkable. In addition to the luxury accommodation, restaurant and café you may wish to consider multiple business options such as, motorhome/camping ground, niche agricultural activities, uses for the natural water source, wild life sanctuary to name a few other options.
With the closure of State Highway 1 South via Kaikoura the tourist numbers now passing through the central part of the upper south have risen dramatically.
This is an opportunity not to be missed; seldom does a quality package like this come to the market ready to launch when you are!
The Lodge offers well maintained buildings and amenities with quality fixtures, fittings and chattels throughout. There is a landline in the lodge but no cell phone reception in the Maruia Valley; the internet service is by satellite broadband.
The main building incorporates the bar, lounge room, café/restaurant, commercial kitchen with a spacious manager's quarters and office on the first floor.
There is a commercial size laundry area and carport. The 7 luxury pavilions are situated overlooking the sensitively landscaped gardens and the river.
The leisure centre has a gym, sauna, treatment room, disabled bathroom facility and TV/pool room.
There is plenty of parking for visitors vehicles onsite.
A well-established kitchen garden and mini orchard, hanger and air strip (currently in grazing and bailage, not operational in recent years, will require certification) are just a short walk from the main building.
The guest pavilions offer luxury accommodation with spacious sitting and sleeping areas plus quality bathroom facilities, all well maintained and presented.
Each pavilion has its own deck area and easy access to the lawn and river offering a peaceful meditative environment with unspoilt South Island scenery.
Luxury in the wilderness, this is an ideal venue for small corporate events, retreats or intimate family celebrations, the opportunity to develop a thriving business incorporating luxury accommodation, café facilities, plus sporting activities for local and international tourists is ready and waiting for you!
