I recently visited Tree Tops Lodge and Estate. It’s at a superb location about 15-minutes out of Rotorua. They have loads of walks and other onsite/offsite activities available and lots of wildlife on the massive rural property.
I’m curious if others have any recommendations for lodges or luxury accommodation we should consider including in a directory here on TravelTalk NZ?

I’ve only ever stayed at some of the Australian ones. https://luxurylodgesofaustralia.com.au/lodges/ I don’t have any desire to do all of them. It was just whether it suited our plans at the time which seems to have worked out to ~ once every 2 years. I have looked through the NZ ones but they didn’t have the same appeal to me that the Aussie ones did. Possibly a bit of the mentality ‘it’s home’ maybe.
I think there are only 2 more I’m considering in the future but they have snags. After that I’m not sure. My favourite places seem to be out in the boonies!October 13, 2018 at 11:06 am NZDT #5171
Wharekauhau in South Wairarapa is excellent, as is Blanket Bay in Queenstown and Cape Kidnappers in Hawkes Bay.
My late father rented the Owner’s Cottage at Kauri Cliffs ($4,000/night I think) and that was pretty good too, he said.October 13, 2018 at 11:07 am NZDT #5172
I should point out that my business uses a fair few upper end properties, both this kind and hotels, for our clients where they ask for that level of service, so I know a few of them.
