Hart Lodge New Zealand

As you well know by now, I have a great passion & appreciation for New Zealand, & so here again I am showcasing another divine retreat, Hart Lodge.
Hart Lodge is a luxury boutique lodge nestled between Tauranga & Rotorua, & is part of the International Select Group of Hotels & Resorts, boasting spectacular views overlooking the majestic Bay of Plenty in the North Island. It has recently been completely refurbished incorporating the perfect fusion of classical & contemporary interior design.
The Hart is the perfect retreat for romantic vacations, special occasions & celebrations, weekend retreats, business seminars & events. It is evident in all aspects of services, facilities & design that the owners Julie & Graham Raw have given utmost consideration to creating the ultimate experience of pampering & comfort for each & every guest. Yes, another one for my destination location list!
