Kauri Cliffs voted 1 Resort in Australia New Zealand

first_imgKauri CliffsKauri Cliffs voted “#1 Resort in Australia & New Zealand”The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is the number one hotel in Australia & New Zealand, as voted by Travel + Leisure readers in the publication’s World’s Best Awards 2017. The prestigious accolade was announced overnight by the US-based magazine, which is considered one of the world’s leading travel publications.With this most recent award coming more than 15 years after Kauri Cliffs first opened, it stands as a testament to the enduring style and timeless elegance of this much-loved New Zealand lodge. Since opening to international acclaim in 2001, Kauri Cliffs has set a benchmark for a relaxed and laid-back style of authentic luxury that is both quintessentially New Zealand, yet sophisticated and world-class in the overall experience.Starting with a dream location and idyllic property just north of the Bay of Islands, the Robertson family delivered on their vision to create a destination lodge that delivers enriching experiences that showcase the stunning region it inhabits.Guests at Kauri Cliffs can discover the remarkable Northland coast by helicopter with chartered and group flights travelling over the Bay of Islands, north to Cape Reinga or across to Tane Mahuta, Lord of the Forest. This unique opportunity to see some of New Zealand’s most beautiful coastal and island scenery draws discerning travellers from around the world.Add to the offering the ability to hook a snapper from one of the lodges three private beaches, to enjoy a gourmet private barbeques on the lodge’s stunning pink beach, to play the world-ranked golf course and to savour Relais & Chateaux food and wine offerings, and Kauri Cliffs is a complete package.“To be named the number one resort, particularly in a country like New Zealand where the ‘luxury lodge’ phenomenon was born and the accommodation bar is set high, says a lot about the experience at Kauri Cliffs,” said Euan Taylor, Chief Operating Officer. “We offer a very personal, warm and tailored style of hospitality where guests really do come first, and it is a heartfelt honour to the entire team to be recognised as Number One across Australia and New Zealand.”Kauri Cliffs is the flagship and first in what is now a trio of leading New Zealand lodges owned by New York-based financier and philanthropist Julian H. Robertson and family. After the success of Kauri Cliffs, the Robertsons built sister lodge, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, which opened in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand in 2007. They later purchased an existing South Island lodge on the banks of Lake Wakitipu in Queenstown, and after an extensive rebuild and renovation Matakauri Lodge was opened to acclaim in 2010.Robertson and his late wife Josie have a long love affair with New Zealand, first moving here for a sabbatical year in the late 1970’s. Some sixteen years later, when Robertson was offered for purchase the 5000-acre sheep and cattle property that is now Kauri Cliffs, he and the family didn’t hesitate.Building The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs took long-term vision and was a true labour of love for the Robertson family. In planning, designing and building the main lodge, accommodation suites and the golf course, every detail was carried through with a perfectionist’s eye. Josie Robertson worked in close collaboration with designer Virginia Fisher on all aspects of the exterior and interior design. Legendary golf course designer David Harman travelled to the property a reputed 46 times from his business base in Orlando, Florida to ensure that the Kauri Cliffs’ course was absolute world class.The result speaks for itself. Travel + Leisure’s 2017 World’s Best Award – Number One Resort in New Zealand and Australia; The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is timeless, classic and much loved by guests from New Zealand and around the world.In somewhat of a trifecta, Kauri Cliffs’ sister properties, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers and Matakauri Lodge were also named in the Top 5 Resorts in Australia & New Zealand, at #2 (Cape Kidnappers), and #5 Matakauri Lodge. The trio are the only New Zealand properties in the top five. Source = Travel + Leisurelast_img read more
