Heaven on Earth

“In the northwest corner of New Zealand – where craggy Pacific Ocean bluffs offer a panoramic view of the Cavalli Islands, sheep and cattle roam freely, and gently rolling hills are blanketed with thick totara forests – a spa sits tucked away from the rest of the world: Kauri Cliffs,” Nadine Jolie writes for Vanity Fair. “Part of the 6,000-acre Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, an American-owned-and-operated Relais & Châteaux luxury hotel and par-72 P.G.A. Championship golf course, the Kauri Cliffs Spa is a cozy hideaway featuring minute attention to detail. ‘We want to create a true escape for people,’ says spa manager Kim Hannan. Sitting on my private heated-stone porch, post-treatment … I was convinced that this remote spot must truly be heaven on earth.”
