Welcome to Antria
“a new beginning”
Described as “Mediterranean meets Antipodes”, Antria Boutique Lodge is the ideal place to base yourself for your special stay in Marlborough. This is Blenheim Luxury Bed and Breakfast accommodation at it’s finest. Your hosts, Caro and Hugh, understand that guests may only have 48 hours to experience the region and we intend to make that a very special, unforgettable time.
From the moment you enter through the Gothic copper front doors you will feel at home. Top end comforts are assured but the atmosphere is relaxed and with only two guest suites you know you are going to be well looked after.
As you walk through the Lodge over Italian tiles you can admire locally crafted ironwork and over 3m high timber ceilings. Contemporary New Zealand Art is everywhere, a true cultural explosion. Wide, covered verandahs extend off the entire lodge and offer shade whilst eating outside or when simply relaxing with that glass of Marlborough wine. Antria was purpose built for luxury Bed and Breakfast accommodation in 1999 opening in 2000. Constructed with guests in mind to ensure both privacy and the “hosted” experience .
Antria was built with the environment in mind, utilizing recycled doors and timber, combine this with thick adobe style walls and Greek alcoves and you will know you are somewhere special. When staying you will enjoy pure cotton sheets, handmade soaps, fudge, fresh flowers, local and homemade produce for breakfast ……combined with complimentary wines in the evening.
Marlborough – the Sauvignon Blanc Capital of the world is at Antria’s doorstep. With the famous Cloudy Bay Vineyard in the same block and 40 others within a 10 minute radius you know you are in the right place to explore New Zealand’s largest wine growing district. Caro and Hugh’s extensive knowledge of the local vineyards will help guide you to the ones best suited to your tastes or, if you prefer, Caro can take you on a full or half day Personalised Wine Tour if you want to sit back and relax in our comfortable modern 4WD.
What would wine be without great food?
Marlborough can boast some of the best dining in New Zealand. Whether it be a laidback vineyard lunch or a full Degustation dinner. Antria’s close proximity and Caro and Hugh’s help means that you are assured of a truly satisfying wine and culinary experience. Epicurean heaven!!.
Rest assured – a stay at Antria will leave you refreshed and ready for your next Kiwi adventure.
