Top Secret

Lodge at The Hills is located on The Hills private golf course, home to the New Zealand Open. Measuring over 7,000 yards, it provides a challenging and rewarding experience for golfers of all abilities. In addition to having access to this championship course, there is also a private hole for the exclusive use of Lodge guests.


The Hills is not Sir Michael's first golf course. An avid golfer and a burgeoning entrepreneur, Michael created his first golf course around his parents’ house in Whangarei, New Zealand when he was about 11. He mowed little circles for greens and used baked bean tins as holes. He charged the other kids in the neighbourhood to play the course and ran little tournaments with prizes for the winners.

A stay at Lodge at The Hills is guaranteed to be a holiday of lasting special memories. From grand entrances and voids to the intimate nooks, incredible music room and private sitting rooms in the suites, Lodge at The Hills offers seamless style, fitting into the landscape while providing luxurious living both indoors and out.
Each of the six bedroom suites are individual in their design and luxurious furnishings.  The suites have their own sitting area with gas fire, en-suite with soak tub and picture-perfect views.

There are also numerous outdoor seating spaces to enjoy; guests can choose to dine under flowering cherry trees, or snuggle in front of the fire pit in the enclosed seating area.
