New luxury resort for Northland
Welcome to the Copthorne Hokianga, but not as you know it. Guests at Omapere’s favourite seaside resort can enjoy a lap of luxury this summer with the launch of The Heads, the hotel’s new wing of high-end suites, boasting world-class design, blissful privacy and the ultimate in rest and relaxation. Opening in December, these 10 stylish secluded villas – tucked away by the Hokianga harbour in The Winterless North – promise luxury and comfort. Inspired by the raw, untouched beauty of nature around them, the spacious open-plan suites are light, bright and filled with natural timber finishings. Husband and wife duo Shane and Pip Lloydd, owners of the Copthorne Hokianga, says the hotel saw an opportunity to offer its valued guests a premium stay with a personal feel. “We’ve answered traveller demands for something unique, private and something authentically Hokianga,” says Shane. “Simplicity is the new luxury – there’s nothing quite like the experience on offer just three hours north or south of Auckland.” Indeed, behind grand gated walls for added privacy, an extravagant escape awaits. Perfect for a romantic couple’s getaway, small groups or the traveller searching for serenity, guests can indulge in their luxurious plunge bath and double monsoon shower, soak in the outdoor hot tub and while away the evening by a roaring fire.
