Kathryne and Phil oversaw the architecture and building of Antria. They travelled extensively after leaving University. Their love of food, wine and entertaining led them , after more than 20 years in the city, to move to Marlborough for a new challenge and a new beginning.
With 7 year old Andrew and cat Hedes in tow, Antria was born and at the end of 2000 was opened by Peter Biggs (the then Chair of Creative New Zealand).
The new chapter of Antria has now begun with Caro Gatley & Hugh Robinson purchasing “her” in March 2020. With extensive travel in NZ and worldwide they know what’s required to go the extra mile for their guests.
Caro has a background in Hospitality with a passion for food made with seasonal and locally sourced produce and a refined pallet and interest in fine wines. She maintains an insurance practice in the North Island and delivers outstanding care and service to her clients in the same way she does with her Antria guests.
Hugh a former farmer loves nothing more than “chewing the fat” with travellers from NZ and Abroad, keen to hear their stories. He loves all things to do with the land and works in the wine industry maintaining the vines and grapes ready for the seasonal harvest.
Caro & Hugh look forward to welcoming you to share in our place and piece of paradise that is Antria Lodge.
