Stewart Island Accommodation

Real Journeys Ltd (RJL) is a  large tourism operator in the south of New Zealand.  The ferry service from Bluff to Stewart Island is one part of its business and this provides a regular flow of tourists in peak season.  Octa’s role included project strategy, procurement of the architect and consultant team, managing the cost plan and  ‘buildability’ in a remote location.

The aim is to provide more accommodation of better quality on the Island, and to extend the ‘shoulder’ season with more tourist eco-friendly activities.  Real Journey’s site is located on a prominent headland overlooking Oban Village and with panoramic views of Half Moon Bay.  The masterplan needed to integrate a comparatively large development within the village and local community.
