The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs

At this luxury property perched over Matauri Bay near the top of the North Island, the colonial-style buildings are dwarfed by the endless wavy greens of a championship, par-72 golf course that ends at the Pacific. The ocean views and holes positioned adjacent to plunging precipices make Kauri Cliffs one of the most famous golf resorts in the world. The hilltop infinity pool is another crowd-pleaser, especially when it reflects the pinks and purples of the sunset. Featuring a beach-meets-country vibe, lodge interiors are outfitted with New Zealand artwork and furnishings imported from Europe and Australia. Outdoors, patches of totara trees dot the 6,000-acre property—one section houses the tranquil spa. Walking paths lead to a waterfall, three secret beaches, and picnic sites that offer sweeping views of Cape Brett and the Cavalli Islands.

Refined Luxury in New Zealand's Far North

About 45 minutes' drive north of the Bay of Islands, the Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is a very special place. Set on over 6,000 incredibly beautiful and wild/well-kept acres, the grounds include the main lodge, the spa, a golf course, three private beaches, a waterfall, and an ancient kauri tree. The helpful, kind staff will facilitate activities—they can drive you down to one of the beaches, along with a picnic if you like—or will leave you alone if that's your style. The spa is set in the center of a lush forested enclave and includes a lap pool and a sauna. Hors d'oeuvres and aperitifs are served every evening, and dinner—paired with wines chosen by a creative and thoughtful wine director—is a jacket-for-men affair.
