Barefoot luxury on New Zealand’s Waiheke Island
Beach | Food & wine | Honeymoon | Relaxation
Originally the small holiday cottage of designer David Scott and now one of New Zealand's best-loved boutique luxury hotels, The Boatshed enjoys a stunning location above the picturesque, sun-drenched bay of Oneroa on beautiful Waiheke Island. It's just a short ferry ride from the North Island city of Auckland.
The Boatshed comprises five guest suites and two bungalows, each with their own style and all within a short walk of the seashore. With an eclectic mix of furnishings, these unique beach houses provide a chic and intimate hideaway amid one of New Zealand's most beautiful island settings. Each of the bijoux accommodations – known in New Zealand as 'baches' – feature everything from complimentary treats to a range of beach gear that includes a shade umbrella, sun hats, beach bag, sand mat and sunscreen. Mod cons come in the form of complimentary WiFi, televisions, Bose CD players and iPod docks while the evening port and non-alcoholic drinks are a nice touch.
Combining succulent seafood, gourmet meat cuts and organic produce grown in the Boatshed's very own gardens, the property's dining experience is one of the best on Waiheke Island. Dine indoors or al fresco and enjoy a selection of New Zealand's finest wines to accompany your meal.
The Boatshed's spa offers a range of relaxing and rejuvenating treatments available to in-house guests only and conducted in the privacy of your suite. The Boatshed's friendly and knowledgeable staff will also be happy to help you make the most of your stay on Waiheke and can recommend some of the best winery tours available on the island.
