Travel + Leisure says..."Hayman is one of the reef’s big, historic resorts, with 209 guest rooms, 350 employees, acres of marble flooring, four dining venues, and three bars. In 1936, the American novelist Zane Grey filmed "White Death" on the island, and in 1970 the resort was severely damaged by a cyclone. After the it reopened six months later, 650,000 trees and shrubs were introduced to the island. The once-before-I-die icon has been accepting paying guests since 1959, when the accommodations were basic cabins. Today, rooms facing the seven-times-Olympic-size swimming pool—so gigantic it loses 1,500 gallons of water in evaporation and runoff per day—have terraces that jut into the water, so you can jump right in from your bed. Are the pools a little splashy? Yes. Are they fun? Absolutely." ~From Travelandleisure.com

It set a high standard for other, like-minded, Kiwi luxury properties decades later, and is still doing so. Built beside the Waikato River, which spills into the Huka Falls, the 25-room lodge occupies 17 acres that have been ranked as a prestigious “Garden of National Significance” by the New Zealand Gardens Trust. All of the junior lodge suites overlook the river, while the four-bedroom Owner’s Cottage and two-bedroom Alan Pye Cottage provide secluded accommodation for multiple guests. Huka Lodge includes a range of private and indoor dining venues as well as a subterranean, vaulted wine cellar, the Jetty Pavilion on the riverbank, and a green room with walls of clipped hedging and lit by a suspended, forged metal candelabra." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Travel + Leisure says..."Set in 6,000 acres of rolling North Island countryside and bushland beside the Pacific Ocean, the 22-suite Lodge of Kauri Cliffs is one of three properties owned by the New York-based Robertson family (the other two being Cape Kidnappers at Hawke’s Bay and Matakauri Lodge near Queenstown). Despite its American antecedents, Kauri Cliffs is, lodge-wise, 100 per cent Kiwi. While golf is the main event, you can also take advantage of two Astroturf-surface tennis courts, an infinity pool, and a trio of secluded swimming beaches. In summer, barbeque suppers are held at Pink Beach. In addition to the spacious suites, there's a 4,200-square-foot two-bedroom Owner’s Cottage. The spa, regarded as one of the best in New Zealand, is in a native totara rainforest with indoor and outdoor fireplaces for those chilly Kiwi days." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Guests “feel like royalty” at this plantation-style lodge on the North Island that collects a bevy of perfect scores. Mixing Greek Revival and a South Carolina plantation house with an East Hampton summer cottage, the perfect-scoring design centers around blue and blond hues amid dark-oak English and European antiques. “Beautiful rooms,” done in light colors with a country feel, garner a perfect score. Sip a Kauri Cliffs Kiwi Mojito before indulging in the “divine cuisine” at the blue-and-white main dining room. Staff deliver perfect-scoring service—“they made us feel like we were the only guests they had to take care of the whole time we were there.” Perfect-scoring activities include “one of the prettiest golf courses in the world.”-From cntraveler.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Signature dishes: New Zealand lamb, paua (abalone). Don't miss: The picnic hamper—which includes market fish, soba salad, New Zealand cheeses, and chocolate macaroons—best enjoyed on one of the lodge's three beaches." ~From cntraveler.com

Enjoy secluded picnics on private beaches, five star cuisine and indulging spa treatment.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."With 24 beaches fringing the Great Barrier Reef, and accomodations for just 40 couples, Lizard Island is in a category all its own. Open-plan suites are done up in the blues and whites of the sea, with hammocks and decks discreetly hidden from view. Count on sunset cruises, torchlit beach dinners, and a staff that will do anything to please (including, once, hiding a diamond ring in a seashell to surprise a bride-to-be)." ~From Travelandleisure.com
