In ShortThe views were absolutely remarkable and the guest experience was amazing, but not quite as nice as a few other places we stayed 

To ElaborateWe had the best massage we have EVER.EVER.HAD at Blanket Bay…one masseuse only … apparently people come from all over the world to come see this one woman. it was SO WORTH IT!! Queenstown is the extreme sports/activities capital of the world. There really is nothing that you can’t do here. It reminds me almost of a ski village in feel. Great restaurants. You must go to Fergberger, world famous burgers. You absolutely must take a helicopter ride around Milford Sound (where Lord of the Rings was filmed). Breathtaking. Fly fishing in the South Island is supposed to be really great, too, but when we went it was out of season unfortunately. We went to 9 vineyards, also a must as NZ is known for many great wines. Also, as is the case with all of these lodges, make sure you check out all of the available activities! Just so much to do and is such a great way to see the land.

reviewer's rating ★★★★★

In Short Amazing! The whole experience was the best imaginable, from the scenery to the food and wine to the activities

To Elaborate We flew into Napier, NZ located in the south eastern part of the North Island and stayed at the Farm at Cape Kidnappers. As the name suggests, there is a farm feel to this destination, but it is still on the coast which is fabulous. We took the most beautiful horseback ride around the property. A must do. We went skeet shooting on the cliffs…also a must do. Please make sure to look at the extensive list of activities because they are such great ways to see the property. Every meal is a 7 course meal with wine pairings…outrageously delicious... the best meals we have ever had, the whole experience in general.
