Honeymoon in New Zealand!

Hi there! My new husband (argh!) and i will be coming on our honeymoon to NZ over xmas 2014 and january too!

We plan on flying to Auckland then spending 2 weeks travelling around

Hopefully covering The Bay of Islands, Coramandle peninsular, Fjordland (spelling!?) and parts of The South Island

can anyone recommend some lovely hotels? we dont want to spend an absolute fortune but would love to stay at some places as it is our honeymoon

My fiance's parents have a beach house at Opito bay but we need accommodation for the rest of the trip!

Any other recommendations of where to visit?

Guessing the weather may be a little iffy in December/january?

Thanks so much for your help in advance!

Hi Lucy,

Opito Bay is absolutely stunning! I'm sure you'll have a magical time in this wonderful location whatever the weather over the festive season.

For places around Northland and the Bay of Islands with quality accommodation, have a look at Russell township across the bay from Paihia. It's both romantic and historic. Matauri Bay further north has Kauri Cliffs Lodge. Karikari peninsula towards Cape Reinga has Carrington Lodge, Waipoua Forest has Waipoua Lodge. Matakana area has Sandpiper Lodge.

A day-trip or overnight visit to Waiheke Island located in Auckland is an island producing wines, olive products and organic produce and treats. The ferry company also provides tours as well as the bus network that covers the developed parts of Waiheke. Specialised tours will take their guests where they wish to go.

Enjoy your New Zealand honeymoon.

Congratulations on your honeymoon :)

For the South Island, fly into Queenstown and spend a few days in Wanaka, Queenstown and Fiordland. With one week you won't have time to explore further.

Enjoy :)
