Luxury Beachfront Accommodation in Kaikoura

Welcome to The Factory - Kaikoura

Kaikoura is on the East Coast of New Zealand’s South Island. Here the blue Pacific waters, teeming with marine life, meet the snow-clad mountains of the Kaikoura Ranges.  This incredible scenery is home to many adventures unique to this part of the world. You can swim with dolphins and seals, watch whales and encounter albatross. There are also many other activities such as golf, surfing, fishing, horse-riding, walking and bike tours. Kaikoura has many wonderful restaurants and art galleries and offers a full range of activities from relaxation through to extreme sports.

The Factory is on the beachfront at Hapuku, 10 minutes north of Kaikoura. It offers five-star luxury lodgings in a separate wing of the historic Hapuku Dairy Factory with dramatic views of snow-covered mountains on one side and the ocean on the other. Your stay at The Factory is exclusive, with only one party of up to six people booked at a time, ensuring you are guaranteed privacy and peace to relax and enjoy the stunning location.


October 2017

Just after midnight on November 14th 2016, the Kaikoura area suffered a severe earthquake. 

The Factory was totally unharmed and is fully functional but there are still a few issues with access to the town.

From the south, State Highway 1 is open but there are restrictions. The inland route is open 24 hours with just a few work sites still requiring caution, so access from Christchurch or the West Coast is not a problem.
The State Highway to the north was badly damaged. It will be open by Christmas 2017 but presently the route from Marlborough to Kaikoura is via the Lewis Pass then through the inland road – a much longer journey than before the earthquake.
This link to The New Zealand Transport Authority will keep you updated as to how to access Kaikoura with details of the restrictions in place.

Go to visitkaikoura.co.nz for up-to-date information regarding access to Kaikoura by road or air and links to the amazing range of activities available in our town.

Our marine life, thankfully, has continued to thrive and all our operators are up and running enabling you to view whales, dolphins and seals all year round. With the seabed having risen more than 2 metres in some places, it is a fascinating firsthand insight into the power of nature. See our latest blog for reasons why you really should visit Kaikoura now.

We are hopeful that you will continue to support our beautiful town by visiting as soon as you are able. It may take slightly longer to get here but, be assured, it will be well worth it.
