Together with my partner, we spent two weeks exploring both the North and South Island, with so many places still to be discovered, we definitely have to go back one day… Nonetheless, we saw a lot on our trip and did some very fun activities. One of the biggest things I would recommend would be to rent a vehicle. It makes getting around a lot less stressful and gives you the freedom to visit places in your own time.
Kokohuia Lodge- Luxury Eco B & B -An amazing B &B for couples to get away and live in their own little bubble. Amazing views, close to town center and yet you feel like you are in a secluded Rainforest. Hosts are very generous and kind, nothing is too much trouble. So worth the trip! https://www.kokohuialodge.co.nz/
Hobbiton Tour - Lets be honest its at the top of everyone’s to-do list once New Zealand is mentioned, Its well worth it, go, enjoy, experience the magic! https://www.hobbitontours.com/en/
Polynesian Spa Rotorua- We chose the Lake View Private Pool and were not disappointed with the views of Lake Rotorua. https://www.polynesianspa.co.nz/
