They will also tour the island’s wineries and food scene, sampling local olives, oysters, wild honey and artisan cheese. From the lodge, it is a short stroll to a private, bush-lined beach at Okoka Bay.
The package gives plenty of time to unwind, but guests can add kayaking, fishing or a walk to the sculpture park.
The three-day experience costs $1450 per person for three days and includes two nights luxury suite accommodation, four course breakfast daily, one four course evening dinner, food and wine on the gourmet food and wine tour, and return ferry tickets from Auckland.
