There have been huge advances in the quality, style and comfort of New Zealand accommodation in recent years. There is now a huge variety of stunning places to stay, designed to suit everyone's needs.

At Nigel Perks New Zealand, we are continually sourcing safari-style accommodation, and we visit and assess every lodge, B&B, bach and hotel before offering it to our guests.

We have a wonderful portfolio of accommodation options, from small-scale boutique bed and breakfasts to wilderness lodges - and even exclusive treetop houses - all offering something completely different. This huge variety is what turns your holiday into a never-forgotten experience. Standards that must be met include:

  • Exceptional locations to make the most of the local environment and activities
  • Personally hosted by New Zealand's best, reflecting this country's reputation for friendly hospitality
  • A unique atmosphere, and one that makes you feel totally at home
  • Great, fresh, interesting food
  • Low impact on the environment and a sense of giving back
