NZ Luxury Accommodation Named Best in World

7 September 2006

New Zealand Luxury Accommodation Named Best in World

Four New Zealand properties have made a prestigious magazine’s list of the top twenty resorts and hideaways in the world.

At the same time as New Zealand has come second in the UK Condé Nast Traveller Magazine reader vote for best country, US-based Andrew Harper in his Hideaway Report has named Huka Lodge in Taupo as the fourth-best in a list of top 20 hideaways from around the world. Glenorchy’s Blanket Bay is sixth and Northland’s Kauri Cliffs came in at 10th. Eichardt’s of Queenstown took out 17th place. Huka Lodge and Blanket Bay also made it into the list of top 20 International resorts.

Tourism New Zealand Chief Executive George Hickton said that New Zealand’s continuing appearance in Andrew Harper’s lists illustrated the quality of New Zealand’s lodge accommodation.

"Our international visitors are increasingly demanding high quality experiences" says Mr Hickton. "Recognition in the Hideaway Report shows that what we have to offer can meet those expectations. New Zealand lodges make regular appearances in this publication - congratulations to the accommodation providers named for this recognition of their continuing high standards."

The ultra-exclusive Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report is considered to be the ultimate travel guide. The Editor under the nom-de-plume of Andrew Harper, circles the globe incognito, providing inside information on the best luxury hotels and secret hideaways.
