NZ Lodge Makes Condé Nast Traveler 2019 Gold List
The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs, Matauri Bay, New Zealand has been featured in the Australia & South Pacific Category on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2019 Gold List, which highlights their editors’ favourite hotels and resorts of all time.
The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs was created on a 6,000-acre working sheep farm set above the Pacific Ocean by American hedge-fund billionaire Julian Robertson.
“For golfers, it offers the round of a lifetime. Created by late, great course designer, David Harmon, 15 of the 18 holes look out across the ocean, while six play alongside cliffs that drop 200 meters into the sea.”
“There’s a day spa built within a native forest, and sunset barbecues on Friday evenings on the property’s pink-sand beach; more formal suppers are served inside the main lodge, which is designed to feel like a traditional farmhouse,” as stated on the list.
“A farm-to-table ethos rules the kitchen, fresh produce from the sea and surrounding farms dictates daily changes to a menu regarded as northern New Zealand’s finest.”
Other hotels featured in the same category were:
Halcyon House, Cabarita Beach, Australia
The Brando, Tetiaroa, French Polynesia
