Built on a cliff overlooking Owhanake Bay in Waiheke, this luxurious, boutique hotel is inspired by the Mediterranean yet has a unique New Zealand flavour. Designed in the shape of a traditional Maori Matau (fish hook), it is built into the hillside with breathtaking sea and island views and an incredible, heated infinity pool.
Four opulent guest suites and a stunning two bedroomed apartment offer guests a truly memorable stay at one of the best hotels on the island. The suites are open and airy and are specially designed to maximise the sea views. Each room includes an intimate courtyard where you can relax in uninterrupted privacy, or soak in your bath tub and take in the breathtaking views. For the ultimate in relaxation, spa treatments and massages by expert therapists can be arranged in Delamore’s exclusive spa suites.
The lodge also offers a dedicated event and meeting pavilion “Wharenui” (Maori term for an important meeting place), a spacious guest lounge and a central courtyard with sweeping stairs down to the tropical rock pool, cave-like Jacuzzi, sauna and wine cellar.
This is the place to enjoy first-class service and elegant cuisine in a completely private setting.
