First up in planning your romantic getaway is choosing a place to stay. Well, you’re in luck, because Marlborough accommodation is some of the most stunning and unique in New Zealand. From luxury lodges, boutique hotels and stunning resorts, to cosy cottages, quaint B&Bs and even a five-star Chateau, the perfect place is waiting for the two of you to discover.
Escape to Picton Boutique Hotel
Hopping off the Interislander and ready for a glass of something fancy? Escape To Picton is a stone’s throw from the Interislander Picton Ferry Terminal - where guests are welcomed with a glass of champagne. Downstairs, the restaurant serves up world-class dishes with locally-sourced produce. Upstairs, each of the three suites is decorated with handcrafted furniture and beautiful finishings.
Hopewell Lodge Marlborough Sounds
For a getaway with an emphasis on the ‘away’, Hopewell Lodge offers spectacular views over the turquoise waters of the Kenepuru Sounds. Hidden away from the world, you can arrive by water taxi or car, then laze about on the secluded beach, enjoy a massage for two, wander or cycle the trails, hand-pick fresh shellfish, or cuddle up as you watch the local glow worms.
