This is one seriously enchanting boutique hotel on Kaikoura's waterfront esplanade. Having undergone a total transformation in style and service following the November 2016 earthquake, the hotel has gone from great to magnificent. Everything has been sumptuously reinvented - "elegantly out-there" - paying particular attention to hospitality, lighting, and style, inside and out. All guest rooms are delightfully stylish and comfortable - our beds and bedding still the best. The dining room (serves breakfast for in-house guests and superb barista-made coffee all day) and the swanky outdoor areas have taken the hotel to another place in terms of hospitality, but it's the addition of a champagne bar that has delivered magnificence. The most far-flung-from-France champagne bar on the planet, Phenix is the perfect spot for a pre-dinner drink or elegant celebration - open afternoons through till pre-dinner drinks time. Serving champagne, great local wine, Kaikoura's own craft beer, canapes and toe-tapping tunes. This is a hotel to rejoice, reconnect or relax. Popular with honeymooners, romantic-retreaters and discerning travelers from all over the globe. Children 15 and under cannot be accommodated.
