Stay & Dine at New Zealand’s Finest

- 17th December 2020 - 


What better place to be during summer than in New Zealand? World-class beaches, fresh seafood, and cuisine that stands up with best in the world. We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to summer road trips and weekends away. 

Of course, there’s nothing quite like a luxurious weekend getaway, and you may think you’ve heard of all the top spots in New Zealand.

One of the country’s luxurious high-end getaways is only an hour and a half flight’s away from Auckland. From its surroundings to the stunning rooms, every inch of The Marlborough private hotel is luxury. With elegant, contemporary suites, gourmet local cuisine, outdoor heated pool, 16 acres of beautiful gardens that run into the surrounding vineyards and attentive staff on hand 24 hours a day, it is a true oasis.

Then there’s the on-site restaurant, Harvest. Boasting a Michelin-star Chef at the helm, Harvest has quickly become the most sought out restaurant in the Marlborough region. Make the most of Marlborough’s sun on Harvest’s stunning garden deck, ideal for groups and intimate gatherings. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a long summer lunch while soaking in the beautiful sunshine and surrounds. A true culinary experience, Harvest lets the produce and ingredients speak for themselves and enhances them with a touch of smoke from its Mibrasa charcoal oven and serves that up with true New Zealand hospitality in a world-class setting - this is the one place you want to be this summer.

There are also the recently refurbished dining rooms to enjoy in the evenings. Either way, indulge in a relaxed atmosphere which allows you to explore the vineyards or find yourself a shady spot to sit back in the comfortable seating with a glass of wine to wile the afternoon away.

Perfect for those “hard to buy for” loved ones, treat them with a stay, dine or combination of both – they will thank you for it.

One of the sunniest towns in New Zealand, it’s surrounded by mountains on one side hills on the other and vineyards covering the valley in between and The Marlborough sits is in the heart – the perfect location to relax and explore wine country.

Or if you are still looking for a Christmas getaway or a place to ring in the New Year then look no further as The Marlborough and Harvest set the bar when it comes to hospitality and luxury. An absolute must-visit this summer, you’ll wish you visited sooner.
