Luxury and privacy

Settlement Road, Te Horo, Kāpiti Coast

Meaning ‘sunset glow’, Kokomea has a sweeping outlook over Kapiti Island and the Kāpiti Coast. An hour’s drive north of Wellington, you access these secluded lodgings via back country roads and farmland before taking a final 10-minute walk through native bush. Once you arrive at the PurePod, privacy and tranquillity are all around, with no neighbours to interrupt the peace except the native bird life. With three glass sides and a glass roof — the eco-cabin is the perfect way to reconnect with nature. Go to bed and watch the stars. Accommodating two guests at a time it’s big on luxuries and seclusion.

The Intrepid carefully fuses luxury, local and convenience

60 Ghuznee Street, Te Aro, Wellington

If you inhale deeply at The Intrepid Hotel, can you smell cocoa? Originally the 1909 building housed Cadbury Brothers’ Wellington office and warehouse. Today it pedals a different sort of luxury to chocolate — a boutique hotel. Its 18 individualised rooms are spread across three floors. All are beautifully appointed with handmade rugs and original artwork. On the ground floor through an elegant lobby, you’ll find Puffin, an intimate wine bar. It’s the perfect place to relax after a busy day but get a booth quick — it’s a popular haunt for many Wellingtonians. Being on Ghuznee Street, it’s in the bohemian Cuba precinct so it’s well patronised.

Bold colour blocking takes inspiration from nature: lilac, avocado green, rusty red, subtle turmeric, like the colours of a Wellington sunset. This attention to design and detail is a common thread through every aspect of Naumi Hotel.
