As If You Needed Another Reason to Go Down Under

Waiheke Island’s “stylish hotel” Oyster Inn has its own selection of fashionable Waihetian beach accessories available on site at their shop; souvenirs worth the trip to New Zealand, according to Condé Nast Traveler.

“We’ve always adored the Oyster Inn, a 40-minute boat ride from Auckland,” the publication writes. But if the island’s beaches weren’t enough of a reason to make the trip, now there’s this: Waihetian, the Oyster’s own line of dip-dye caftans, sandals, and beach bags.”

“Designer Andrew Glenn, a former Louis Vuitton executive, has his pieces handmade in Bali, but they’re available only on Waiheke. As if you needed another reason to go Down Under.”

The Oyster Inn has featured in Travel + Leisure, Monocle and Harper’s Bazaar amongst others.
