Lodges of New Zealand have just announced the launch of a distinctive gift registry service which will be available at some of New Zealand’s most exclusive lodges.

Last year, Lodges of New Zealand started their popular tailor-made gift voucher service and the new gift registry revolutionises wedding gifts or, in fact, gifts for any occasion. With the gift registry clients can build a fund which is managed online at, and invite others to contribute. The fund is then gifted to a recipient with a bottle of bubbles and can be used for a stay in any of the 22 luxurious properties of Lodges of New Zealand, a truly worthwhile gift.

Lodges of New Zealand chairperson Colleen Ryan says: “The registry is obviously ideal for a wedding or honeymoon gift registry. The bride and groom can direct guests to our website where they can contribute as much or as little as they like. [...] The application of the registry is unlimited and there’s no postage.” The recipient chooses their favourite luxury lodge (or even multiple properties) and embarks on a trip of a lifetime.

Member lodges are intimate and considered New Zealand’s most luxurious hideaways in stunning surrounds.
