Delamore Lodge is an intimate resort carved into the cliffside high over Owhanake Bay on beautiful Waiheke Island. Just a 35 minute ferry or 10 minute helicopter ride from downtown Auckland, the elegant resort is a world away from the commotion of the city and offers the ultimate in privacy, seclusion and unashamed luxury. There are just four sumptuous lodge suites and a lavish two bedroom apartment, all facing the sun and commanding spectacular views of the magnificent Hauraki Gulf. Each has a totally private, furnished courtyard overlooking the bay, perfect for enjoying those magnificent sunrises or a spot of sunbathing. The bathrooms also face the outside with huge windows so you can take in the views from your deep soaking tub. The interiors are light and airy and decorated in soothing tones with hand plastered walls that seamlessly blend with the natural landscape outside. Freshly baked cookies are delivered each day and the apartment benefits from a fully equipped kitchen. On that note food and wine are a crucial element of the Delamore Lodge experience. All of the food served is inspired by the freshest, most local ingredients, many of which are home-grown or harvested nearby. There is also a great choice of top restaurants and vineyards in the vicinity. The resort’s great facilities include a spa, cave-like Jacuzzi, a curved infinity pool and five hectares of delightful gardens.
