Welcome to EcoScapes, Kinloch.
Our EcoScapes are passive low energy rooms, providing luxury lakefront accommodation that allows you to immerse yourself in nature, relax and rejuvenate.
Located just across the lake from Glenorchy, EcoScapes has been built with locally-sourced green building technology and designed to blend with the environment whilst offering outstanding comfort and luxuries.
Named Eco for the ecology of the whole project. The values of Kinloch Wilderness Retreat and the community of Glenorchy’s Vision Plan and Shaping Our Future Workshops have all been encompassed.
Named Scapes for the new shoots from the old Heritage-listed lodge at Kinloch.
We look forward to welcoming you to Ecoscapes.
Our two EcoScapes are named Mohua and Kea. These are named for Barry Lawrence, a popular DOC Whakatipu area biodiversity assets manager who passed away in 2011. He was instrumental in the protection of native species and landscapes, leading to the increase in birdlife in the Upper Whakatipu.
Barry spearheaded projects in the area such as Operation Ark, set up to preserve the long-term survival of key species including the Mohua.
