Relais & Chateaux’s Otahuna Lodge in New Zealand is celebrating the TransTasman travel bubble with Australia, offering a take-over package for guests to live like royalty.
The ‘Lord of the Manor’ offer provides guests the chance to embrace the majestic history of the property the same way its founder Sir Heaton Rhodes did more than 125 years ago. Lord of the Manor is the ultimate run of the lodge package where guests can enjoy the full luxuries of the remarkable estate entirely to themselves.
Recognised for its remarkable architecture, award-winning gardens and sophisticated cuisine, the lodge is set in pastoral surroundings against the fluted cone of an ancient volcano, it is a beguiling Victorian mansion that offers its guests a unique sense of wonder and discovery.
Guests can enjoy an endless array of activities both on and offsite including dolphin swimming, harbour cruises, wine tasting, helicopter tours, hiking, horse-riding, golf and garden tours, as well as on-site facilities including swimming, croquet, cooking classes, bicycling and massage.
Inclusive in the ‘Lord of the Manor’ package are pre-dinner drinks with canapes, nightly bespoke 5-course degustation dinners with local wine pairings, continental and cooked breakfast, laundry services, wireless internet, and use of the lodge’s equipment and facilities.
Lord of the Manor is available for up to 10 guests, with full access and inclusions available at the preferential rate of NZ$6,495 per night from May through September or NZ$8,495 per night during the months of April and October. Up to 16 people are able to stay in the lodge with additional charges being NZ$500 per person per night.
