Helena Bay lodge, New Zealand

Villa Suite

Built on a remote stretch of coast on New Zealand’s North Island, with the Unesco World Heritage Poor Knights Islands just across the water, Helena Bay Lodge provides the ideal base for exploring this country’s dramatic scenery. And it’s not just this secluded setting that the hotel is known for; the lodge is also celebrated for the high level of luxury it provides to guests. Here, each of the two sumptuous villa suite—Kiwi and Kotare—comprise an en suite bedroom with walk-in wardrobe, a spacious living room and an outdoor terrace within its 1,450 sq ft of space. Situated alongside one another, the two suites can be connected to accommodate a group of four. No expense is spared when it comes to amenities, with the added option of a standby helicopter.
