New Zealand is a country filled with such natural beauty, you hardly need to worry about where you stay – every view is scenic and breathtaking! However, to take your trip to the next level, make sure to include a stay at New Zealand’s latest luxury lodge – Helena Bay.

Located in the northeast corner of North Island, Helena Bay features nearly 2 miles of pristine coastline, four private beaches, and many little coves, nooks, and crannies for you to explore. This coastline in particular has been noted by National Geographic as one of the world’s best!

Helena Bay doesn’t rest on the merits of its location, however. The architecture and interior of the lodge is equally beautiful. Inspiration was taken from early European buildings in New Zealand and incorporated a mix of traditional techniques and modern materials.

Rooms have eclectic artwork and curios, so that wandering around the Main House is an activity in and of itself. Wander out to the heated pool overlooking the water for a relaxing afternoon, play a round of tennis, or treat yourself to a massage. Hike or bike through the trails that start right on property. Take a kayak or paddle-board out on the water, try your hand at fishing, or have a picnic packed to go for a day-long adventure. End your day with a culinary feast by a Michelin-starred chef and an outdoor bonfire.

Helena Bay Lodge has so much to offer on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the entire world. Don’t hesitate to stay here on your next trip to beautiful North Island, New Zealand.

Get in Touch

In an era where we even wondered if travel agents still existed, we found Esplanade Travel and are so happy we did! Just came back from two plus weeks in New Zealand and had a fabulous time - in many ways because of Ksusha! She took the time to get to know us a bit, what was important to us, our budget and LISTENED to us! As a result, we were able to put together a trip of a lifetime that combined what WE had on our list as well as her many suggestions. From the moment we arrived in Auckland and were met, as scheduled and planned, at the Auckland Airport - to tours and accommodations along the way, the execution of our plans were essentially flawless. Couldn’t have been happier and more pleased. Thank you Esplanade and Ksusha. You rock!!
