Slink Into Style

The Wairarapa’s Wharekauhau Lodge & Country Estate is one of five “sexy and stylish retreats” recommended by the Observer’s Mr and Mrs Smith who travel throughout New Zealand and Australia looking at the best. At Wharekauhau the pair stayed in a standalone cabin which “was pure modern farmhouse in style: high ceilings with exposed beams, a  canopied bed, a romantic gas open fire and a stunning and private view from the bathroom window.” Also listed is The Boatshed on Waiheke Island, “nautical chic, bayside bliss”; Mollies in Auckland, a “bohemian boutique hotel something you won’t soon forget”; Azur Lodge in Queenstown, described as “sublime”; and Hapuku Lodge in Kaikoura, the rooms “luxurious, with ridiculously impressive views and very sexy bathrooms”.
