Luxury and sustainability are two concepts that work in total harmony in New Zealand when it comes to accommodation. The eco-conscious traveller is forever in search of a stay that is both sublimely set, and also built in an environmentally friendly hub. Te Waonui Forest Retreat is one such place that fits this description. A five-star luxury hotel at Franz Josef on the South Island’s untamed West Coast, it carries full Enviro-Gold accreditation and comes complete with Lounge Bar and the Canopy Restaurant dining space dotted by earthly dishes the likes of Carpaccio of Piri Piri dusted Venison, carrot dot, herbed feta, pickled onions, baby cress, the Tea smoked, Te Waiponamu Scallops, sea chicory lychee and lime sorbet, sea grape salad and a little White Bean Velouté with leek and herb oil. You can also lose yourself in the tranquil Hahana Day Spa located at Te Waonui Forest Retreat and experience out-of-body Skin and Body Therapies. Designed as a luxury rainforest haven, take the virtual tour and see for yourself the grand beauty of the Te Waonui Forest Retreat.
