Delamore Lodge (Waiheke Island), New Zealand

Providing guests with free pre-dinner drinks and hors d’oeuvres every evening of your star, as well as complimentary transfers to and from the ferry terminal, the staff at Delamore Lodge strive to give guests the holiday of a lifetime.

Each of the resort’s luxurious suites comes with a private patio to look out over the sea or nearby gardens, and each guest has access to a host of DVDs accessible from the library in the guest lounge, should you want to have your own private cinema evening in your suite.

If you follow the courtyard’s mysterious stairway you’ll emerge in front of the tropical infinity pool area, complete with a spa pool, sauna, waterfall and, of course, the huge crescent-shaped infinity pool.
