Kapitea Ridge, Hokitika, New Zealand
The curved roof lines of this charming, contemporary coastal lodge, blend with the native bush and enable each of the rooms to enjoy the panoramic ocean views from a private balcony or patio. The colours of the surrounding bush land and attractive gardens are reflected in the interior decor of the rooms, each of which is en suite with luxury fittings and thoughtful touches such as de-mist mirrors, cotton bath robes, fresh flowers and chocolates.
There is a large comfortable lounge with a bay window and log fire for cooler evenings and an al fresco barbecue. A gourmet breakfast buffet is included in the price and light platters can be served in the evenings, either outside or in the charming conservatory. Before dinner guests often enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub or simply relax on their balconies taking in the sunset whilst enjoying a complimentary port.
