We stayed here for 2 nights Jan/Feb 09 and it was a highlight of our trip to NZ. The surroundings are stunning and the resort's (award winning) design makes the most of them. Amazing views and wildlife around. Great food and levels of service that are extremely hard to fault, and yet the resort maintains a very relaxed unpretentious atmosphere which is very refreshing in such a high end place. Yes, it is expensive, but I would say that it is worth the money, and as previous reviewers have noted, the resort is not out to make as much as it possibly can from you - for example, I really liked that there was a well appointed guest laundry (free to use) - I am personally quite happy to do my own washing rather than pay a lot for someone else to do it. Another great idea was that the restaurant are happy to keep opened bottles of wine for you to drink over a couple of nights - this meant that we could have a bottle of red and white on our first night and finish them on the second.
Service is excellent - of particular note were Francie and Adam.
I'd rate this as one of my favourite hotels in the world and we would love to return........
