Honeymoon Ideas for New Zealand

New Zealand is the ultimate destination for couples. Here are some memorable, romantic ideas for your New Zealand getaway...

1. Stay in a Secluded Glass Cabin

Spend a night in a glass eco-cabin, nestled deep in a stunning New Zealand landscape. You'll park your vehicle and then walk, for up to one kilometre, to the secluded site. There are several of these beautiful glass cabins (PurePods) throughout New Zealand - the Korimako PurePod is nestled into lush native bush while the Atatū PurePod is perched up high with sweeping views across the sparkling ocean. Surrounded on every side by a breathtaking wilderness view, and at night, under a canopy of stars that you can gaze at through your glass roof, you'll feel like the only two people on earth. 

2. A Picnic on Top of the World

Board your helicopter and pop the cork on a bottle of champagne, as you soar through some of the world's most stunning landscapes. Your pilot will take you high above Queenstown, over glittering Lake Wakatipu and into the mighty Southern Alps. You're making your way to one of the highest peaks of this mountain range, where a gourmet picnic will be laid out for you and your sweetheart. This is what memories are made of.

3. Charter a Luxury Launch

If you love seafood and wine, this is the experience for you. Spend two nights hosted aboard luxury launch Tarquin, journeying through the Marlborough Sounds. This is one of New Zealand's most picturesque destinations, and as you weave your way through intricate waterways (past islands, secluded coves, and sheltered inlets), you'll enjoy sublime fresh seafood and world-class Marlborough wines - courtesy of Tarquin's private chef. Visit a King Salmon farm, experience a walk through a birdlife reserve or on the famous Queen Charlotte track, try your hand at fishing, or kayak the Abel Tasman National Park. Foodies can take the opportunity to join the chef for a private cooking masterclass. This two night cruise that's the ultimate combination of scenic wonder, adventure and luxurious indulgence.

4. Onsen under the Stars

Imagine your own private spring-fed hot pool, located high on a cliffside, overlooking breathtaking alpine scenery. This is the now Instagram-famous Onsen Hot Pools in Queenstown. Each cedar-enclosed spa room enjoys stunning, panoramic views of the Shotover River from the massive retractable picture windows. This place is particularly romantic as the sun goes down, when your private Onsen will be lit with Japanese lanterns. Sip on a glass of champagne while enjoying the night sky full of stars. After your glorious hot soak, enjoy a one hour couple's massage.

5. Frolick in Lavender Fields

Take a walk together through the heavenly-scented flower fields at Wanaka Lavender Farm. The air is heavy with the beautiful aroma of lavender - known the world over for its calming and relaxing properties. Take time to unwind over a cup of tea, and enjoy a lavender and honey ice-cream or another treat from the selection of lavender & honey goodies, all made using local ingredients. This stunning farm is also home to friendly resident animals you can meet.

6. Luxury Farm Stay - Seascape

The ultimate in luxury and privacy. Imagine a picturesque, secluded and unspoilt New Zealand beach, above which is perched an ultra-modern, architectural retreat. This is Seascape at Annandale Coastal Retreat - a world-class boutique accommodation, ready and waiting for just the two of you to enjoy. Accessed only by helicopter or by a 40-minute 4WD vehicle journey across cliff-top farm tracks, this is a truly awe-inspiring setting. Inside the glass walls of this contemporary accommodation, a king-size bed sits upon a dais, a step up from the living area and indoor fireplace, so the incredible view dominates the space.
