Waiheke Island Extension

Waiheke Island


Short description

Pamper yourself with wine tours, gourmet meals and exclusive accommodation all set to some of New Zealand’s most beautiful vistas


Recommended for:
Food & wine | Relaxation

Although just a short ferry hop from Auckland, Waiheke Island is a world away from the city bustle of its urban neighbour. Exposure to the Hauraki Gulf has rendered its north side into some of the country’s finest beaches while green-hued waters lap at the rocky bays of its more sheltered south coast.

This three-day sojourn makes the most of it all with an ultra-luxury stay at Delamore Lodge, set high on a cliff overlooking the golden sands of Owhanake Bay. Here, private patios host picturesque gulf views, framed by five acres of beautiful gardens that feature everything from infinity pools to saunas. And, with just four suites and one apartment, guests are treated to truly exclusive intimacy. You’ll arrive, following an included ferry and local transfer, to a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine and a welcome platter. It’s all capped off with a 90-minute deep massage for two. The indulgences don’t stop there, however, with pre-dinner drinks and canapés prefixing a fine dining three-course meal, individually tailored to your tastes.

The next day, after a breakfast of further gourmet eats served in the privacy of your suite, you’ll head out to explore the island’s other side – its prestigious viticulture. On a private tour, you’ll taste your way through three of Waiheke’s finest vineyards before returning to yet more drinks and canapés along with dinner at one of the island’s award-winning restaurants. Of course, seafood is a particular speciality, given your privileged position. Before your trip back to Auckland the next day, be sure to leave some time for relaxing by the infinity pool or in the deep Jacuzzi.
