Taking your next stargazing trip to a luxurious new level, these incredible domes are a New Zealand first

For those on the hunt for a unique accommodation experience, Lake Hawea’s newly opened Crosshill Lodge and Domes is sure to tick some memorable boxes. Stay in your own, private geodesic dome, the first of its kind in New Zealand. These cocoon-like pods are situated in a natural park-like setting on the shores of Lake Hawea, and include climate-controlled heating and cooling, contemporary bathrooms and premium amenities.

Each 40-square-metre dome has its own platform and level providing privacy, while encouraging a sense of community, gathering and storytelling after a day exploring the area. Cross Hill Lodge is located above the domes and is for dome guests’ use only, providing a gathering point at the beginning or end of the day where guests can enjoy breakfast and dinners, a well-deserved massage or quiet time in The Whiskey Room.
