NZ Lodge Accommodation

Some of the words often used to describe New Zealand lodges and retreats include luxury, heavenly, five-star, beautiful, boutique, distinctive, tranquil, paradise and spectacular. You're probably starting to paint a picture of what makes lodges and resorts so distinctive and New Zealand's lodges and retreats really do offer guests the very best in luxury and service.

New Zealand lodge accommodation and retreat accommodation are located throughout the country. Lodges and retreats are often situated in some of the most beautiful and remote parts of New Zealand and are designed to provide a relaxing holiday for visitors from all over the world.

New Zealand's lodges and retreats include secluded beachfront or lakeside lodges and resorts focusing on specific interests such as golf, fishing, hunting, meditation or wilderness activities (also see Outdoor, Sports, Ski and Fishing Lodges).

Lodges in particular tend to cater for a small number of guests at any one time which creates an intimate, boutique atmosphere and the sort of personalised service that large chain-type hotels simply cannot match. See also NZ Luxury Lodges.

Lodges are often located in stunning rural settings or on the out-of-the-way, secluded fringes of popular beauty spots.

New Zealand resort accommodations vary in size, but like lodge accommodation, specialise in offering guests excellence in luxury, service and facilities. The food is generally of exceptional quality and affords an excellent opportunity for guests to enjoy the very best of New Zealand cuisine, wine and beer in beautiful surroundings. Also see NZ Resorts and Health Spas and NZ Meditation Centres and Health Retreats.

The only downside of staying in one of New Zealand's lodge or retreat accommodation is that you may never want to leave!

Whether for business or pleasure, it's easy to find and book your lodge or retreat accommodation in New Zealand online.
