Couples Retreats


Create special memories and reconnect with your loved one.  From forest retreats to swish intimate bungalows, sea views to mountain tops, seclusion, intimacy & romance for couples has never been more exciting.

Donkey Bay Inn

Adults Only

You desire to escape where ‘peace’ and ‘tranquillity’ are a high priority. You enjoy adult company, without the complexity that children can bring. Let’s face it, ‘Kids can be extremely active, noisy & dare I say it sometimes “distracting” – And when you wish to get away with friends, or a significant other (without the rest of the family in tow), you do not want to experience the sound of “other people’s children”. You desire serenity, an experience that caters to the needs of adults.


You may wish to consider a beach break at an adult only hotel seen here at Donky Bay Inn, in the Bay of Islands, or a suite offering uninterrupted views of the Abel Tasman at the luxurious Split Apple Resort, escape to a secluded sanctuary at Maruia River Retreat or stay in a villa within the vines of Central Otago’s picturesque Gibbston Valley – I have tracked down the best, both at home and abroad, and can offer a wide range of irresistible places that will tempt you to escape.

Special Occasions | Honeymoons

You may be looking for somewhere with an intimate vibe – a peaceful location, perhaps on a pristine white sandy beach, or an ultra-luxe room with incredible views that screams ‘romance’.  Maybe there is a special occasion and the journey has to include that ‘once in a lifetime’ moment – could be the luxe offerings of the hotel suite with your own private balcony and infinity pool; a secluded villa surrounded only by nature; or that ‘special moment’ which requires being whisked away to a secluded mountain top, or serenaded on your own private yacht.  Did someone call for Champagne? … do not worry it is waiting on ice!  These occasions are often kept for engagements, honeymoons, or ‘special event’s – but really should be experienced more often!  If you want your experience to be ‘off the charts’ this is something that can be arranged.   

The Lindis stars

Off the Grid

You need to ‘disconnect to reconnect’.  Exclusion is important – perhaps somewhere you haven’t thought of – a short break , a weekend escape, or a journey to discover the beauty of nature.  The world is full of these hidden gems, from staying in a tent in the sand dunes of Morocco to your very own iglu on top of Mount Zermatt, Switzerland. Within New Zealand we have a variety of incredible experiences, from staying in a dome tent in the Waitaki Valley, escaping to a timber hut on the rugged wild coast, to a pure glass dome perched high on a hill offering sweeping sea views and fabulous sunsets. If your desire is to escape to experience one of New Zealand’s stunning luxury lodges – two ‘off the grid’ locations that are sure to delight is ‘The Lindis’ nestled imperceptibly on the floor of the Ahuriri Valley and the exquisite Fiordland Lodge offering commanding views across Lake Te Anau, and home to our famous fiords of Milford and Doubtful Sound. Bliss!
