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.
