The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, Matuari Bay, Bay of Islands, North Island, New Zealand

Everything you could possibly want is here: blissful beaches, wonderful walks, a soothing spa… and, like its sister property at Cape Kidnappers, it has a world-class golf course.

​Situated overlooking the breathtaking Bay of Islands, Kauri Cliffs is the perfect beach retreat and golfer's paradise, all with the feel of a country mansion: elegant and classical with rustic touches, and where every little detail has been honed to perfection.

Nestled on the edge of a native forest, with fabulous views over the magnificent Pacific Ocean and golfing green, guest cottages house huge, luxurious bathrooms, fireplaces and stunning private verandas; the 'owner's cottage', facing the Bay of Islands, includes its own private pool and hot tub.

​Activities here are endless, whether it's relaxing on the beach, playing on the fabulous golf course, game fishing, scuba diving or even hunting for boar. You can take a tour of the area with a knowledgeable guide and then dine on a private beach with freshly-caught barbequed fish.

The service is off-the-scale: just ask, and it's never a problem. There's such enthusiasm from the staff too, with a pride in everything they do. But the biggest memory you'll bring home with you are the views. 'Utterly unforgettable' just doesn't say enough.
