“One word: views! New Zealand’s Delamore Lodge boasts suites that open up to a private patio with the beautiful ocean in the background. If you can tear yourself away, it’s the perfect base to explore lovely Wahieke. This property also has some wonderfully unique touches; did we mention there’s a Jacuzzi in a cave?!”
Set on a northwestern cliff edge of Waiheke Island, Delamore Lodge is nestled into the hills of Owhanake Bay, with spectacular views of New Zealand’s Hauraki Gulf. To get to the lodge you have the option of a short ferry ride or a scenic flight from Auckland, a gorgeous flight over cerulian seas and green forests.
The exclusive hotel, structured after a Maori fish hook, is influenced by New Zealand’s aboriginal artistry. Accommodation choices include four luxury guest suites and a two-bedroom apartment, each of which are decked out with luxurious facilities and fittings, complete with open bathrooms and private patios facing the sea.
It might be a challenge to pry yourself away from the indulgence of Delamore Lodge. However, if you manage, adventure and sightseeing on Waiheke Island beckon – from paragliding and touring acclaimed vineyards, to scuba diving and sailing in the clear blue waters of the Gulf.
