Go New Zealand – A Romantic Escapade
Home to glorious glacier mountains, mythical forests, shimmering lakes, secluded islands, crystal-clear rivers, miles of coastline and sparkling blue sea, New Zealand offers starry-eyed romantics a dreamy destination filled with blissful wonder. Spend time with your loved one relishing New Zealand’s many romantic hotspots. Bond with each other whilst you enjoy a host of activities such as tandem skydiving, horse-back riding, bungy jumping or relaxing in hot pools.
Embark on a life of togetherness with a memorable honeymoon in New Zealand.
Located in the South Island of New Zealand, Queenstown with its stunning scenery, high-end recreational activities, and luxury accommodation is a truly romantic destination. Bond with each other as you cruise down Lake Wakatipu with the stunning backdrop of the Remarkable Mountain range towering above the crystal-clear lake.
Hire a helicopter and fly to a remote alpine location for a champagne picnic, play golf on a range of world-class courses, or charter a private yacht for fishing. The sky is the limit for an exhilarating hot air balloon flight. Float high above Lake Wakatipu, getting a bird’s-eye-view of Queenstown’s dramatic landscapes.
Enjoy the good life in Wellington, New Zealand’s capital city, famed for its lively down town cafés, shopping, nightlife, entertainment venues, and a dramatic harbour setting. The picturesque vineyards in Hawke’s Bay are a great setting for a heady romance as you partake of the local vintage wines.
New Zealand is renowned for its range of adventure activities, including bungy jumping, jetboat riding, rafting, skiing, mountain climbing and caving. One of the best sea kayaking experiences can be had on a visit to Cathedral Cove in The Coromandel Peninsula as you paddle through sea caves and explore volcanic islands. Be sure to take a dip in the cool azure waters and capture a snapshot of the iconic Te Hoho — a large pinnacle of pumice breccia rock just off the beach at Cathedral Cove.
Stay at the Bayview Chateau Tongariro Hotel, which is nestled within Whakapapa Village in the heart of the Tongariro National Park. Overlooking Mount Ruapehu, the hotel was built in 1929 and exudes timeless elegance. During winter, the entire place is covered in snow, giving a magical, winter wonderland feel.
During your stay at the hotel, head to the slopes at Whakapapa Ski Field for a skiing adventure on the soft powdery snow, or take a scenic chairlift ride to Knoll Ridge Chalet (2,020m above sea level) for a view of the area. You can also hike along the legendary Tongariro Alpine Crossing to see hot springs, ancient lava formations and crater lakes.
New Zealand is also a great destination for a relaxing vacation at any time of the year. Visit Auckland, located between two harbours and surrounded by extinct volcanoes and islands. Try your hand at fishing, as you sail out to the various fishing spots, immerse yourself in the breath-taking views of the Hauraki Gulf and relax on the deck with a glass of bubbly.
Watch the sky as it turns from crimson-streaked blue to light purple then velvety black; a twinkling brocade of glittering stars. Be romanced by candle-lit dinners or delighted by beautiful sceneries. Rejuvenate at a geothermal hot pool or settle in for a romantic escapade at one of New Zealand’s many boutique lodges where Kiwi style and service will set the tone for a unique experience.
Fall in love in New Zealand, take home unforgettable memories.
