Scenic Special Stays

You’ll find that the wonders of New Zealand are even more special when you’re ensconced in comfort and surroundings that reflect the uniqueness of the destination. You can look forward to some of the most relaxing and stylish accommodation available. Every selected hotel has been handpicked by our expert Journey Designer to ensure it offers the best possible location and creature comforts. 
Our hotels are selected on more than reputation alone, rather on a combination of location, character and ambience to ensure your hotel stay is truly reflective of your destination. 

In select locations we feature Scenic Special Stays, iconic hotels remarkable for their location, character and heritage. Whether you’re staying at the elegant Grand Millennium Auckland or the iconic Te Waonui Forest Retreat, a stunning, unique lodge-style hotel surrounded by native bush and the charming village of Franz Josef; you’ll want for nothing.
