My new husband and I cannot stop thinking of our days at Solitaire, even two months later. There were so many diversions both in an outside the room (we wandered the grounds, of course, went boating, just sat in the gardens, and of course availed ourselves of the helipad), and the gracious hosts were just the perfect balance of creative recommendations and stepping back to let you soak it all in. And given the recreational opportunities, myriad ways to enjoy the natural beauty, and the beautiful food, I actually felt we got a great deal by staying there.
And as newbies to New Zealand, it was great to have the best food we had in our entire culinary tour of the country. And we really valued the chefs descriptions of the dishes, answers to our questions, as well as the homemade assortment of cookies in our room and available anytime.
