The Lodge at Te Rawa, situated in the middle of the Pelorus sounds is only 45 minutes from Havelock by boat. The perfect location for fishing, boating, walking, kayaking, or just relaxing on the deck with a glass of your favourite Marlborough wine, a fine malt whisky or small batch gin.

Nestled in native bush on the crystal clear waters of Pelorus Sound, Te Rawa offers magnificent views, total relaxation and all the comforts of home in a unique environment. All apartments have an ensuite bathroom and shower, a kitchenette and dining /sitting area and most importantly, all apartments have beautiful uninterrupted views of the sea.

Rob and Anne the new owners of Te Rawa are very relaxed, and happy to let you self-cater or dine in the fully licensed sea-view restaurant, where we offer fresh homemade meals and snacks as well as a selection of fine wines from the Marlborough region. We also have an in-house musician, and a new coffee shop with fresh barista-made coffee and Kapiti ice cream. We are open every day from 09:00 – 23:00. You are welcome to come for a meal, stay a few nights, self-cater or mix it up as the mood takes you. You can spend time exploring the beautiful Marlborough sounds in your own boat, a charter boat, or one of our kayaks. You can also stroll around the shoreline at low tide, or walk the hills to neighbouring bays through forests of native bush.

The Pelorus Mailboat stops at Te Rawa every day and a one-way trip from Havelock to Te Rawa is $40. Private trips can also be arranged through one of the three Pelorus Sounds Water Taxi companies or the seaplane from Wellington. Transport can also be arranged from Picton or Blenheim airports.
