Base yourself at The Portage Resort and explore the magic of the world renowned Marlborough Sounds, at the top of the South Island of New Zealand.
Relax, unwind and switch off from the rest of the world while you enjoy your surroundings at this beautiful, waterfront Resort. Enjoy the rustic landscape of native bush, with an abundance of unique wildlife. Whether you’re looking for a quiet getaway to sit at the pool soaking in your surroundings or an activity packed trip, The Portage Resort is the perfect place for you.

Everyone has their own idea of what they want on their special day, so how does it sound to get married at a breathtaking setting, with a sense of history and a fresh, relaxed, contemporary atmosphere.

With 42 waterfront rooms and 2 waterfront restaurants plus a spacious conference room, The Portage is the perfect base. If you are looking to launch a new product, host your company retreat, or motivate and inspire your crew we have it all.

Dine for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner at The Portage Restaurant & Bar and enjoy a cuisine that inspired our rich New Zealand heritage and infused with herbs grown in our gardens. In summer, you have the option of dining at our beachfront Snapper Bar and Eatery and experience a classic Kiwi “Fish n Chips” and other Kiwi favourites. Both venues have spectacular views of the famous sunken valleys and lush rain forests of the Marlborough Sounds.

Access The Portage Resort via water taxi - a 15 minute trip from Picton or 40 minutes from Havelock. Blenheim Airport is a 30 minute car trip from Picton and has multiple flights arriving daily from major cities, including Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
