I had the great pleasure of visiting all three of the amazing lodges
in the Robertson group as part of the magical 9 day New Zealand Experience...the
gorgeous lodges of Kauri Cliffs, Cape Kidnappers and Matakauri. All
very unique, each with a different feel, with one unifying theme called
excellence. If you are thinking of NZ and want to do it right, this is
the way to go! Although, be warned, you will probably want to extend
your stay, so get an open ended ticket. The golf courses at Kauri
Cliffs and "The Cape" are a golfers dream...just spectacular with
views to match. The staff, the food, the service, the accommodations,
the individual spas all as good as I have ever experienced. You
immediately felt like you were at home! Everyone was always so
accommodating and no request went unfulfilled. The culinary team(s)
can handle any request. In fact, when you were first greeted at each
property, you were asked if you had any dietary concerns. One of the many
nice touches at each lodge.
Don't forget to visit the 900 year old Kauri Tree at Kauri Cliffs, or
visit the Gannet colony at the Cape, or do the helicopter tour of
Queenstown at Matakauri....just for starters. There are so many things
to do, even if you are not a golfer!
I will be back, but next time for longer. Nine days is just not enough. Thanks "Team Robertson"!!
