About Us - more than just a place to stay

Lochmara is a locally owned and operated small resort, since the beginning of Lochmara Lodge 22 years ago with only 14 rooms and a waterfront cafe set right on the waters edge and on 11 acres of land in the Marlborough Sounds in Lochmara Bay, Queen Charlotte Sound, Picton. Come and experience a way of life with NO roads, although we can easily arrange water transport for you from Picton (charges apply). Lochmara also has a 3.5km walking track to the world famous Queen Charlotte Track.

We offer exceptional accommodationday tours and an Underwater Observatory for visitors looking for unique and memorable kiwi experiences. We provide a destination where national and international visitors can come learn about, interact with and appreciate New Zealand’s native flora, fauna and art while enjoying a magical Marlborough Sounds escape.

Join us for a day, a meal, or a longer stay and you’ll soon realise Lochmara truly is...  "Once Discovered... Never Forgotten"
