Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
With its tremendous landscapes, Maori heritage, superb food and wine, long list of incredible things to do and love of all things outdoors, New Zealand guarantees a memorable trip. Getting around this predominantly rural country is easy, and with a population of just 4.6m it’s never long before you’re discovering quiet roads and deserted beaches. Where you stay is a big part of a journey here, thanks to an inviting range of luxury lodges and boutique hotels that are for the most part privately run. That means you’ll not only sleep well at the ten properties we’ve picked out here, you’ll also be shown how to make the most of where you are, which for many Kiwis means getting close to nature, enjoying adrenaline activities, and eating and drinking extremely well. Enjoy!
