[B]oard the Fullers Ferry in Auckland (or a helicopter) and head to picturesque Waiheke Island that’s rife with vineyards, replete with art, and alive with a live-and-let-live attitude that transpires on the nearby “Nudie Beach.”


Among this island idyll is Delamore Lodge, a luxury boutique property that has travelers swooning over the expansive views of Owhanake Bay, melting over impeccable spa treatments, and salivating at the individually created five-course menus. The Mediterranean-meets-Maori design creates a tastefully eccentric environment where guests can feel at home. Take a dip in the infinity pool that effortlessly evokes calm as you stare out at the turquoise waters of New Zealand or stroll along the paths and find inner peace within the beautifully manicured gardens. At night, head to one of four, five-star suites or to the recently opened two-bedroom apartment where, along with a soothing earth-toned ambience, plush amenities like rain showers, Californian king beds, and freshly baked biscuits help you relax further. Rooms from $1,060-$1,470. 83 Delamore Dr., Oneroa, New Zealand. Tel: +64-9-372-7372.
