The children are well and truly back at school. The best of the summer weather may have waned, but then so have the crowds and the queues. New Zealand’s Far North enjoys a sub tropical climate where even the Autumn and Winter months mean that we have many sunny days, and the temperatures are in the mid teens, often tipping over 20 C.
Here in Kerikeri Bay of Islands, the magnificent Kauri rain forests are arguable at their best with light rain. The canopy protects walkers from all but the heaviest rainfall. You can enjoy a stroll along our wide deserted beaches with no other soul in sight.
Then there are other attractions – the Kawaiti glow worm caves, and of course the Waitangi Treaty museum. Our historic mission houses are just as intriguing no matter what the weather. And lunch at Marsden Estate winery, Ake Ake or maybe overlooking the Bay at the Duke of Marlborough are a delight no matter the weather.
Curl up with a good movie – or a least someone who’s watched one!
We’ve reintroduced our Romantic Getaways this autumn, along with our updated in room movie service on our brand new smart TVs. For only an extra $49 per booking, you can retreat to our glorious Premium Suite with a 2 course dinner served in-room.
Then pretend the rest of the world doesn’t exist! Select a classic movie from our ‘TV Direct’ movie service. Breakfast at Tiffany’s anyone? If you’re feeling just a bit more wicked, then you’ll be delighted to know our new NETFLIX service (all free of course) allows you to relax and lose yourself in an entire season of your favourite TV show.
Add the sound of autumnal rain falling gently on your roof – and you have a recipe for a deliciously decadent evening!
