3 Hotels to Stay at in New Zealand

New Zealand—a country with 5.6 sheep for every person—is the perfect place to get away from people-packed cities and delve into Mother Earth. Colloquially known by its Maori nickname, “land of the long white cloud,” the country hosts a wide variety of charming boutique hotels amidst captivating landscapes. Below, we’ve spotlighted three NZ hotels to visit when you need a break from people (of course, they’re perfect for social distancing)👇

The Landing (@thelandingnz)—a compelling, luxe hotel set on 1,000 acres within New Zealand’s Bay of Islands region—comprises six private beaches, an accoladed vineyard, and four fetching residences. Garden-to-table dining is significant at The Landing, which utilizes on-site orchards, vegetable, and herb gardens. DIY sea-to-table dishes can be arranged as the hotel offers the chance to catch your own crayfish and scallops in nearby coves

The sheep-outnumber-people statistic is exhibited at secluded, Palliser Bay hotel, Wharekauhau Country Estate (@wharekauhau), which hosts 13 freestanding cottage suites set amongst the seafront grassy fields of 5,500-acre working sheep and cattle farm with streams, woodland, and pasturage. A scenic 1.5-hour drive from Wellington, the hotel is located on the southern edge of New Zealand’s North Island, in Wairarapa. When inside, guests will love the Edwardian-style estate’s vantage point of the glistening sea from its windows and balconies, paired with thoughtfully selected antique furnishings, courtyards, and grand fireplaces

The five-star, 18th-century Victorian mansion, Otahuna Lodge (@otahunalodge), is set amidst herbaceous fields, with a backdrop of New Zealand’s Southern Alps—conveniently, just a 30 minute’s drive from Christchurch. The hotel’s history starts with its inception in 1895, when high-profile pioneer, Sir Heaton Rhodes, built the built the England-country-estate-inspired residence for him and his family. A lover of topiary, Rhodes plotted a botanical garden that features fruit trees and daffodil fields—the perfect view from the lodge
