Wharekauhau Country Estate Voted Best in the World For Ambience and Design in Condé Nast Traveller Gold List 2012
Martinborough, New Zealand (December 2011)
Results from the prestigious Condé Nast Traveller United Kingdom Gold List 2012 have been announced and New Zealand’s Wharekauhau Country Estate located in the famed winery region of Martinborough, has been named best in world for its ambience and design.
The Condé Nast Traveller Gold List is considered the ultimate guide to the world’s finest establishments, recognising only the top echelon of hotels and resorts. This gold list is compiled from 32,633 reader responses, and then confirmed by Condé Nast Traveller experts, which highlights the top hotels from around the world - based on the facilities, activities authentic to the region, food, ambience/design and service.
Recapturing the gracious lifestyle of the bygone are, Wharekauhau Country Estate is a luxury lodge with award-winning style, situated on a 5000-acre working farm on the South East coast of New Zealand’s North Island. Framed by the Rimutaka Ranges to the West and Palliser Bay to the East, the Lodge is surrounded by ancient, native forest, spectacular beaches, bountiful rivers and tranquil lakes facilitating a veritable smorgasbord of outdoor activities. Each of the sumptuously furnished, charming cottages which are dotted throughout the extensive grounds, enjoy magnificent ocean views and offer complete privacy and seclusion.
Condé Nast Traveller Gold List 2012 X-factor: The numerous windows in the main lodge provide sweeping views of Palliser Bay from every vantage point. The new library, completed in June last year, is a treasure trove of vintage photos and memorabilia dating back to 1842, when the farm was established.
