5 Romantic Valentine Getaways

When it comes to Valentine’s Day plans, ideally your man would have sorted things out ages ago. But chances are, he hasn’t. Maybe all he needs though is a little nudge in the right direction. To that end, we’ve got a few suggestions that you might like to drop some heavy hints about…

1. Treetops Lodge and Estate (Rotorua)

Hidden in the heart of an 800 year old native forest, this luxury lodge really showcases the finest of what New Zealand has to offer. Choose a village or cottage, then pick from range of superb luxury experiences to make your weekend something truly special.

2. The Boatshed (Waiheke Island)


After the 5 star treatment? It’d be hard to pass up The Boatshed. In spite of its rustic name, this hip little luxury hotel really lays it all on. Beautiful surroundings, fine dining, a selection of luxury beach cottages to choose from, romantic retreat packages… what more could you want?

This may just be the secluded hideaway you didn’t know you needed.

4. Mollies Luxury Boutique Hotel (Auckland)Mollies Exterior

In Auckland but not of Auckland, this little slice of Victorian inspired paradise is a serene sanctuary from the everyday stresses of life.
