The three cosy and compact pods are nestled gently into the landscape, their innovative mirrored exterior reflecting the spectacular natural surrounds
Luxury lodge The Lindis, which opened on New Zealand’s South Island last year, has unveiled its new luxury mirrored “pods”. Located a stone’s throw away from the main lodge on the 2428-hectare Ben Avon Station surrounded by conservation parks, mountains and beech forest, the three cosy and compact pods are nestled gently into the landscape, their innovative mirrored exterior reflecting the spectacular surrounding nature.
Inside, the double-glazed, one-way mirrored glass walls on three sides give guests immense privacy along with uninterrupted views of the scenic Ahuriri Valley and mountains, and provide a practical purpose, keeping the pods cosy in winter and cool in summer.
Designed by architect Noel Martin, each 20-metre-squared luxury pod features an interior of rich, dark woods, a king-sized bed with sumptuous bedding, an ensuite with a black marble sink, outdoor gas-heated tubs, private decks and top notch eco-amenities.
The Lindis pods have been created using the same sustainable design principles as the main lodge and use an onsite backup generator, efficient LPG boilers, geothermal heat pumps, rainwater harvesting systems and state of the art insulation.
A wide range of activities including fly fishing, hiking, horse riding and e-biking is on offer to guests of The Lindis, along with the world class cuisine.
The Lindis pods can be rented individually or in conjunction with the lodge, privatising the whole property.
