Exhilarating New Zealand

By April 20, 2021October 14th, 2022No Comments

Embark on a journey of extraordinary sights and adventures

A breathtaking country of diverse and interesting landscapes. With volcanic mountains, glaciers, alpine landscapes, beautiful beaches and idyllic lakes and islands, New Zealand is spectacular. Many of these landscapes are protected by National Parks that are open to the public to enjoy.

"Nature defines who and what we are, and no more so for any nation than New Zealand, Aotearoa, land of the long white cloud."

Al Morrison

New Zealand has over 9320 miles of coastline, extraordinarily uncrowded. From rugged black sand beaches on the West Coast to golden sandy beaches on the East Coast. The incredible landscape and scenery are perfectly combined with modern cities showcasing culinary delights and the culture of the Maori nation.

The Maori nation and culture are the backbone of the country.

The Maori were the first to arrive in New Zealand over 1000 years ago. Later discovered by the Dutch, it was the British who ultimately made New Zealand part of their empire. In 1840, a treaty was signed between the British Crown and the Maori and it is this treaty that is seen to be the founding document of the country. The treaty was signed at Waitangi which now forms part of the Waitangi Treaty Grounds near Kauri Cliffs.

The most northern part of New Zealand, known as Northland, is home to world-class luxury resorts, golf courses, ancient living forests, and the Bay of Islands. This is where you find one of our favorite destinations – The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs. The region is bursting with activities with sailing, kayaking, fishing, golf, and cultural activities to name a few.

On the Eastern coast of the North Island, lies Hawke’s Bay, the region is known for its award-winning wines, awe-inspiring landscapes, and an endless array of activities. Sitting atop a hill overlooking rugged cliffs and sea views is Cape Kidnappers. Ranked as one of the top two hotels in New Zealand and Australia by Travel + Leisure, and within the top 20 hotels in the world by Conde Nast Traveller, Cape Kidnappers is a dream destination.

Explore the surrounding area and indulge in exclusive activities including the Can-Am Farm tour, Kiwi Discovery Walk, and a rare glimpse into the life of the endangered Kiwi bird.

Both Kauri Cliffs and Cape Kidnappers are often listed in the best golf courses in the world. Set within natural breathtaking landscapes and designed by experts, the two courses are “must play” destinations.

Combine with Queenstown and you have a journey of noteworthy scenery, cultural activities, and top-ranked golf courses.

"Whenever I get stressed, I just want to hop on to a plane to Queenstown."

John Travolta

Queenstown, on the southwest coast of the South Island, is set against dramatic alpine slopes of the Southern Alps. Often referred to as the adventure capital, Queenstown is situated on the shores of Lake Wakatipu and is rumored to have been named by gold prospectors who were fascinated by the beauty of the surrounding mountains and rivers.

Jacks Point, ranked within the top 50 in the world and number 2 in New Zealand is just a stone’s throw from Queenstown.

With the Remarkables Mountains as its backdrop, Jacks Point Golf Course is a spectacular 18 hole 72 par championship course. 

For those golfers looking for a challenging and unforgettable experience, we highly recommend a round of golf at the panoramic Jacks Point.

Only a short flight from Queenstown, Milford Sound is an iconic landmark that is not to be missed. Often intimated to be the 8th wonder of the world, Milford Sound is part of the Fiordland National Park, New Zealand’s largest World Heritage area. With the opportunity to land on a glacier and enjoy a glass of champagne as one of the activities on offer, you will be hard-pressed to find anywhere else in the world that combines the exhilaration and excitement that Milford Sound does.

New Zealand is a country of diverse natural beauty, world-renowned golf courses, and an inimitable culture. When you leave New Zealand, you will have experienced what true hospitality feels like.
