The wistful combination of shabby-chic and seashore luxury has never been presented so perfectly as it has at The Boatshed on Waiheke Island. Just thirty-five minutes offshore from Auckland, this wonderful boutique hotel is courtesy of a winning father-and-son team who have perfectly refined the beach-house experience. The Boatshed, purposely sun faded and rugged, couldn’t be more luxurious – five beach huts and two bungalows, all of which enjoy an airy coastal-cottage palette and louvered shutters, make for an intimate and natural environment. The white-sand beach of Little Oneroa is just minutes away (and is a great start to some stunning coastal walks), the restaurant prepares fresh, organic recipes and the hospitable atmosphere is complemented perfectly by that irresistible sound of wind-whipped coastline. The village of Oneroa is easily accessible too and has cafes, art galleries and shops.

Health & Fitness

The Spa is a therapeutic hideaway gently touched by the sound of ocean waves and peaceful sea breezes. Treatments include hot stone facials, massage, body wraps and scrubs as well as hot oil head massage and pressure point remedies.

In Addition

An absolute must while staying at The Boathouse is to hire the hotel’s Mini Moke – a light military-style vehicle which resembles an American Jeep and has been affectionately named ‘Togs’ – for the day (for a small charge). Togs may not be the most luxurious of vehicles, but it does boast an iPod compatible sound-system and enough charm to seduce even the most sceptical of guests. Take him out between 8am and midnight and enjoy everything the area has to offer – from vineyards, to peaceful bays and local art galleries, stopping for picnic lunches and dusky dinners en route.
