The options are endless. A round of golf on one of the top 100 courses in the world? A four-wheel-drive tour? A picnic on a wild and deserted beach? A massage in the brand-new spa? Or maybe just a quiet beer while taking in the panoramic sea vistas?
Such are the tough choices faced by guests at Kauri Cliffs, one of the pre-eminent luxury lodges in New Zealand, a land where luxury lodges are a dime a dozen.
