Exclusive Experiences

Back in 2001 we set ourselves an objective - to provide our clients with super-quality daytime (or nighttime) experiences which would complement excellent accommodation.  It is a cornerstone of our philosophy that accommodation is only part of the equation and that therefore it was our duty to provide and if necessary invent top-quality...

Nur bei Ahipara

Bei unserer Gründung im Jahr 2001 setzen wir uns ein wichtiges Ziel: Unsere Gäste sollen Tages- und Nachtprogramme erleben, die mindestens ebenso besonders und unvergesslich sind, wie ihre großartigen Unterkünfte. Exklusive, anspruchsvolle Lodges und Gästehäuser sind ein wichtiger Bestandteil unserer Philosophie, aber wir wollten dazu gern...

A Beach is a Beach - right?

A Beach is a Beach - right?

Well, not quite. Like many things, they seem similar on the surface but once one gets below the surface they're all different. Consider these different beaches we have used (and yes, most of them were deserted): - a beach in the far north where the top quad bike ride in the country takes people up 300ft sand dunes. Remote and wild. - a...

Focus on Auckland

Focus on Auckland

Now that the busy season is winding down in New Zealand, we have had a chance to think a little about how the market has moved on and how we can work with more people to everyone's benefit.

Auckland is often the entry and departure point for visitors, and therefore somewhere where some time is spent.  People often accept lower standards in Auckland, thinking that we have nothing as spectacular here as we do in other parts of the country.  That's wrong! Just a short scenic 10-minute helicopter ride from the...

Flexibility - Again!

Flexibility - Again!

We had quite a challenge last month - a VIP who wanted things to happen after the last moment, who wanted top quality, and who wanted costs carefully managed. It's very difficult to deliver all of those at the same time. Typically quality comes with a cost and resurrecting expired deadlines takes even more cost. However, we managed and were...

Auckland

Auckland

Often misunderstood, this city has grown to dwarf New Zealand's other cities.  The reason, according to one eminent historian is lifestyle.  I agree with him.  This is not an easy city to understand for those who want to do it themselves.  Our clients have had an excellent time.  With the maritime playground - second...

Die meisten Neuseelandbesucher kommen in Auckland an oder fliegen von hier wieder nach Hause und verbringen deshalb einige Tage in dieser Region. Viele sehen den Standard in Auckland als gegeben an und schließen davon auf das gesamte Land. Aber damit tun sie den neuseeländischen Unterkünften unrecht. Es gibt auch in Auckland etwas ganz...

Auckland

Auckland

Auckland wird häufig vorgeworfen, es wachse so, weil es alle anderen Städte Neuseelands in seinen Schatten stellen wolle. Der Grund dafür, so sagt ein bekannter Historiker, sei der Lebensstil in dieser Stadt. Ich stimme ihm da voll und ganz zu. Auckland gerecht zu werden, ist nicht so einfach. Aber unsere Gäste haben immer eine exzellente...
