For many travellers, New Zealand represents the ultimate getaway; an unmissable combination of natural beauty, fabulous beaches and compelling cities and towns. New Zealand is packed with unforgettable experiences, and there’s no reason why your accommodation itself shouldn’t feature among them. Sure, you can book into any number of fancy hotels in Dunedin, Christchurch, Wellington or Auckland, but both South and North Island offer alternatives that are a cut above your average accommodation and can make your stay truly unforgettable.
You won’t find accommodation on North Island more luxurious and exclusive than the unique Greenmantle lodge, where six sumptuously-appointed suites, equipped with every modern amenity for a comfortable and relaxing stay are just the beginning. You’ll enjoy a spot of fine dining and even afternoon tea too! Set in its own gardens and surrounded by woodlands, you can relax in privacy and tranquillity whilst admiring Greenmantle’s delightful views. The gorgeous outdoor pool is perfect for cooling off in, whilst golfers are spoiled: Paraparaumu Golf Course, one of the world’s hundred best courses is close by. So is the beach: Greenmantle is located on New Zealand’s wonderful Kapiti Coast, which lends itself to countless activities from romantic beach strolls at sunset to horse riding, fishing and wildlife spotting. Shopaholics and those who enjoy the buzz of the city needn’t fret either. Greenmantle is only a short ride away from Wellington, a city that is about as chic, colourful and cosmopolitan as they come, and known as New Zealand’s capital of culture.
On South Island you can really get away from it all in spectacular style with a stay at the magnificent Westhaven Luxury Retreat. Standing on a ridge on its own private peninsula overlooking Whanganui Bay, this fabulous hand-built lodge offers five spacious guest rooms and two decadently indulgent suites. Stay here, and you’ll want for nothing; the views are breath-taking and among the best anywhere on North Island. You can be pampered into a stupor courtesy of Westhaven’s heated indoor pool, hydrotherapy spa and infrared sauna. As if that wasn’t enough, budding gastronomes will be thrilled by the lodge’s superb cuisine in which the freshest organic produce is used to create an ever-changing menu of specialities accompanied, of course, by fine New Zealand wines. Dining al fresco and by candlelight on Westhaven’s deck overlooking the bay is an experience that is guaranteed to become a cherished memory.
The joy of a stay at Westhaven Luxury Retreat is that it combines a coastal location yet is surrounded by the endless green hills and valleys of a stunning National Park. You’re absolutely spoiled for the choice of wonderful things to see and do, whether it’s lazing on the sands,walking one of the many trails on the 1000 acre property, coastal fishing, exploring Farewell Spit, kayaking or simply immersing yourself in the undiluted beauty of your surroundings.
New Zealand is a destination without equal; friendly, naturally beautiful and with a rich and diverse history and culture. Whether you’re visiting for your honeymoon or for the holiday of a lifetime, why compromise on your accommodation when you have the opportunity to experience true luxury and relaxation in one of these extraordinary private lodges?
