With the wild and remote landscapes of New Zealand enveloping you, there’s no cosier place to stay than your own luxury lodge.

The Kiwis offer an impressive line in boutique lodges: with world-class hospitality, gourmet food, usually luxurious perks like spa centres too. But what good would a luxury lodge if it just sat by the side of a motorway? It’s all about the location – and from vineyards to pastoral farmlands, lake’s edge or beachfront, cliff top to mountainside – New Zealand is packed full of spectacular landscapes.

In the North Island, you can stay at the ultra-luxurious Eagles Nest, a 75-acre estate of five villas overlooking the breathtaking seascape of the Bay of Islands. As does the Kauri Cliffs, which is included in Conde Nast’s 2013 Gold List and also overlooks a championship golf course.

Down in the South Island, Blanket Bay boasts the title of New Zealand’s best luxury lodge: a tranquil alpine chalet tucked away between shimmering Lake Wakatipu and the soaring Southern Alps. Intimate Whare Kea, splits its property between lakeside lodges and a mountain chalet on the edge of Mt Aspiring National Park.
