Sudima Kaikoura is a brand-new hotel occupying a prime position on the town’s Esplanade, with sweeping views of sea and mountain directly ahead. This central location, only a short walk from the town centre, makes it an ideal base for whale watching expeditions, Kaikoura’s main attraction.
The Superior guest rooms are bright and spacious, with either a king size bed or two double beds, a TV, wi-fi, and Amazon Echo. The hotel has a small, well-equipped fitness centre, and there is also an outdoor heated infinity pool, the perfect spot for an invigorating swim.
Hiku is the Sudima Kaikoura’s all-day restaurant. The name ‘Hiku’ comes from the Māori word for ‘whale tail’ and is inspired by Kaikoura’s most iconic attraction. On offer is delicious, relaxed New Zealand fare; classics with a Kiwi twist using the regional’s bountiful produce. The bar has an extensive wine list featuring exclusively wines grown in the Kaikoura and neighbouring North Canterbury and Marlborough regions.
