Curio Bay Hotel

At first appearance this classic New Zealand bach merely has the advantage of a panoramic beachfront location, from where you can step straight into the waves or watch the dolphins dancing from your terrace. Look closely however, and you will find two rustically stylish designer studios.

The owners have created the luxury beds from recycled timbers and the bathroom furnishings from driftwood found on the beach after the winter storms. The kitchens are modern with the latest fridge, oven and hob units and there is a full laundry shared between the two studios. You can also dine on local fish at your designer table and relax in the lounge sofas listening to your favorite music. This is eco-friendly escapism at its simplest and best.
