An exclusive boutique retreat overlooking New Zealand's Bay of Islands, Eagles Nest hotel gives beyond-five-star hospitality. Guests can choose to do as much or as little as they wish, from dipping into infinity pools to driving around a Porshe. One can enjoy a private gourmet barbecue prepared by the chef or see a spectacular sunset with a glass of sauvignon blanc. Don’t forget to take a helicopter ride over Cape Reinga where you can land on a private beach for a swim or just take a stroll on the water’s edge.
