Delamore Lodge on Waiheke Island celebrates Auckland’s unique style of life, inspired by the ageold Mediterranean but designed for the scintillating South Pacific.
This lodge brilliantly echoes the shape of a traditional Maori fish hook and spectacularly overlooks traditional fishing grounds from Owhanake Beach. A sweeping stairway links the dramatic entrance directly to the library, and flows on to the spacious guest lounge and dining area. From the library you might also wander into the central courtyard, discovering a tropical rock pool and waterfall, a deep, cave-like Jacuzzi, a sauna, well-being centre and a wine cellar. The courtyard then cascades into the striking, Italian-style fireplace and outdoor dining area, in turn flanked by the lounge and just four luxurious guest villas. Delamore’s superb all-weather pavilion has 180-degree clifftop South Pacific views. It’s a sparkling new choice for formal seated banquets of up to 90 or for informal ceremonies hosting up to 120 friends and family.
Each of the plush villas fully faces the sun with a private patio and more panoramic views even from your bath and spa treatments can be arranged in your room. Delamore is the first choice for celebrities who want style with guaranteed privacy and security, and yet Waiheke is just 30 minutes by ferry or a five minute helicopter hop
from downtown Auckland, just 12 minutes from the airport. And then there are the sensational beaches, restaurants and the world-famed vineyards of Waiheke to explore.
Delamore Lodge - an inspiration for celebrity lifestyle weddings and honeymoons.
