YOUR ACCOMMODATION

Eagles Nest, Bay of Islands (3 nights)
Nestled on the ridgeline of a private peninsula, Eagles Nest is only a 2-minute drive from Russell and a 45-minute drive from Kerikeri, the closest airport. A secluded retreat, Eagles Nest includes five luxury villas in the breath taking Bay of Islands. The villas are the perfect venue for customized luxury holidays, special occasions and elegant weddings. Swim in your own heated drop edge lap pool or take a spa for total relaxation in the privacy of your own villa. You also have a choice of walking tracks through beautiful native bush; some leading to the resorts own secluded beaches. Gaze at the stars through the telescope, pamper yourself with a massage and have dinner created by the resident chef in the luxury and comfort of your villa. Original gourmet Pacific Rim Inspired Cuisine is an Eagles Nest specialty, with an extensive wine cellar featuring the best New Zealand wines and French Champagnes.

Eagles Nest – Eagle Spirit
Nestled into a sea of native bush, Eagle Spirit’s luminescent design with three en-suite bedrooms
compliments the breath-taking Bay of Islands. Watch dolphins play from the 18 metre lap pool or
just relax in the spa as the sun sets across the bay.


The Marlborough Lodge, Blenheim (3 nights)
With elegant, contemporary suites, gourmet local cuisine, beautiful parkland surrounds and attentive staff, luxury is second nature at The Marlborough Lodge. The lodge is your perfect base to explore the stunning Marlborough region, the idyllic setting for your dream wedding, and the secluded haven to create time for yourself and reflect on as much – or as little – as you desire.

The Marlborough Lodge - Premium Lodge Suite
The Premium Suites are distinctively spacious and elegant, with contemporary en-suites and luxury in every detail. Take in the scenic views across the estate’s 16 acres of parkland and vineyards from the balcony of these two Premium Suites located on the first floor.


Annandale, Akaroa (2 nights)
Welcome to the private, luxurious experience of Annandale. This working coastal farm and four luxury villas are nested between the rolling hills of the Banks Peninsula and the sparkling water of the Pacific. These private locations feature award-winning architecture and a unique experience that is referred to as "gumboot luxury". Enjoy the exclusive use of the property you choose, where privacy, stunning scenery and the smell of fresh air are guaranteed. Make the experience your own by selecting activities and the level of service that suits your style. From sunrise to sunset, your private retreat at Annandale is authentic and unforgettable.

Seascape
Seascape is a sparkling jewel in Annandale’s crown: a picturesque private bay, above which an ultra-modern retreat provides a truly romantic experience. Accessed by helicopter or by a 40-minute transfer in a 4WD Annandale vehicle across the cliff-top farm tracks, this awe-inspiring setting offers couples the chance to make memories around the clock. As you approach the bay, with its dark pebbles and azure waters, it is clear you are somewhere timeless and unique. The turf roof, stone walls and glass façade of the contemporary accommodation discreetly add another dimension to the landscape.


Eichardt's Hotel, Queenstown (3 nights)
Eichardt’s Private Hotel is a landmark luxury hotel in the centre of Queenstown. Built in the mid-19th century this elegant downtown retreat retains many of its original features, with supreme comfort and a home-from-home welcome.
