The wild of New Zealand beckons once more, a country whose spectacular islands and bays have felt unmoored from the rest of the world for far too long. The essence of traveling far and wide is immediately felt in the journey alone, and we promise it’s worth every second it takes to arrive. There is simply nowhere else that compares, whether you’re an adrenaline seeker, a foodie, reconnecting with family, or just want to admire some of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth. New Zealand is ready for you, so what are you waiting for?
First things first, these properties alone will tempt you and your loved ones to indulge in luxurious and unique stays.
The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, Hawkes Bay
This place is a treasure trove for golfers, naturalists and wellness seekers, a working farm whose views over Hawke’s Bay will put the most troubled minds at ease. We love the Owner’s Cottage which houses up to 8 with private in-house dining upon request. Expect private beach picnics, Kiwi discovery walks and night tours of Cape Sanctuary.
Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses, Kaikoura
Sitting pretty at the base of the Kaikoura Seaward Mountain Range, these gorgeous tree houses are the most luxurious option along the coastline and offer elevated views atop a native Kanuka grove. An immersive venue for families and couples that will take your breath away after a day spent whale watching. The passion for food here will be clear from their attention to detail with every meal.
For standalone private luxury villas that house up to 12 guests at a time, look no further. Each of these retreats bring undeniable character to your stay, with a choice from seascape’s contemporary glasshouse, scrubby bay embraced between two hills, the rural isolation of shepherd’s cottage, the magic of returning to the homestead built in 1880, or the stables lofty 2-bedroom apartment.
Minaret Station Alpine Lodge, Wanaka
As part of a 50,000 acre working farm, this is one of the purest and authentic lodges you’ll find in the high country, accessible only by helicopter as you arrive in style. The vastness of this glacial alpine valley is magnificent, home to remote rivers and mountain streams. Enjoy nights in your private chalet with a hot tub on deck.
Park Hyatt Auckland
You simply can’t miss the energy of New Zealand’s capital, and Park Hyatt delivers with its spacious suites bathed in light with floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel overlooks the Waitematā Harbour with access to an infinity pool and an impeccable restaurant using only local produce.
New Zealand Experiences
Once you’ve landed on a beautiful base, the next step is choosing from one of many exhilarating experiences, taking it at whatever pace suits you best. This country prides itself on meeting the needs of every type of traveller, from wildlife spotting and horse-riding, to wine-tasting, star-gazing, alpine lake rafting and hot-air ballooning. From our point of view, you simply can’t leave New Zealand without an aerial helicopter experience, where you can appreciate the masterful designs of Nature from up high. Traverse world-class golf courses, test your limits with gruelling mountain-biking or 4×4 off-road adventures, enjoy blissful days fly-fishing, and be sure to arrange a Maori cultural experience to learn more about their storied history upon these shores.
