Cross Hill Geo Domes

Located within the parklike surroundings of The Camp, Cross Hill Lodge and Domes have their own entrance and are nestled on the hill in their own exclusive area. Cross Hill Lodge & Domes celebrates the magic of human connection on the land with high country hospitality and premium comfort in a remote, peaceful setting.

The Cross Hill domes are designed by world-renowned dome designers, Pacific Domes, and provide an enviable architectural aesthetic, bringing the outside in, to each and every dome.

Each of the six domes at Cross Hill has a 40sqm interior with a 30sqm deck, perfect to relax on and let your body absorb the surrounding forest and nature. The floor to ceiling windows enable guests to lie beneath the stars at night, cocooned, safe and warm (or cool) from the outside elements and the morning sunrises are out of this world.

The dramatic mountain skyline that surrounds the nest of domes reminds you that you are on the edge of the mountains. While the sky provides you with the temperament of the weather in real time and due to our Island geography, it constantly changes. The abundant birdlife and amazing night skies complete this eco escape.

Curated interiors for warmth and relaxing

Also chosen for their environmentally friendly heating and cooling system and unique design features, each dome is equipped with a gas fire and heat pump. The climate control is completed by a solar fan that lets air in and out when temperatures reach 75 F, giving you full control over your space.

The furnishings, inspired by the local landscapes, have been purposefully curated to create a feeling of calm, warmth and relaxation and the super king-sized bed (which can be split into twin beds) invites you to be enveloped by it, to relax and unwind morning, day or night.

A modern bathroom features all the conveniences you’d expect including beautiful, environmentally sensitive bathroom amenities from New Zealand brand Ashley & Co. A small kitchenette provides other essentials, including pod coffee machine, tea, sugar, milk, bar fridge, dishwasher and all crockery, plates and glasses you’ll need.

All guests have exclusive access to Cross Hill Lodge which features an outdoor hot tub, plentiful lawn area, BBQ, undercover outdoor deck for dining, indoor dining and lounge room, The Whiskey Room and Massage Room.

Cuisine

Cross Hill Lodge & Domes offers an immersive experience, where the accommodation is just the start. Dinner and breakfast is provided with most of our stays (excluding dome only package) and you will enjoy a three-course degustation experience, inspired by local produce and paddock-to-plate cuisine.

Served with wines from our cellar, including Central Otago, other New Zealand regions and International varietals, the experience is made all the more special by exchanging stories with other guests at The Lodge. A cooked and continental breakfast is also served at The Lodge daily during your stay.

Experiencing a nights’ sleep in a geo dome is something everyone should do, to experience the night sky, the curvature of the angles, a cocooned feeling and nature almost at your fingertips. Domes can be booked individually or as a group (see groups page for more details).
