Luxury Accommodation, New Zealand Style
Unlike many other countries whose visitors are primarily business travelers, most of the visitors to New Zealand are on vacation. Because of this, and also because much of what New Zealand has to offer the international tourist lies outside of the main centres, New Zealand has developed its own style of luxury accommodation: The 5 star luxury lodge, boutique hotel, or bed & breakfast.
Most of these properties have been developed by kiwis who have spent considerable time overseas. Returning to New Zealand, they seek an idyllic location - typically one with sea, lake, mountain or country views - and then purpose build a "lodge" with a view to hosting international travelers.
In New Zealand, "lodge" may mean a facility with as few as three guest suites. Typically it's not the number of suites that defines whether a property is a lodge or a b&b, it is the level of service and the quality extras which mark the distinction.
Lodge hosts are very involved in entertaining guests, delivering fine cuisine and wine experiences, and recommending and booking activities. The amenities offered by lodges are diverse, but typically include complimentary high speed internet, culinary delights with a personal touch (home made breads, jams, yoghurt, etc), and expansive grounds and gardens in which to roam.
Luxury accommodation in New Zealand need not mean a 5 star luxury hotel. In fact if like many travelers you plan to visit New Zealand on vacation, try luxury accommodation New Zealand style. A luxury or boutique lodge, a boutique hotel, or a luxury b&b. You won't be disappointed.Back to News
