New and favourite ho­tels to visit in 2019; the best dress to pack

FROCK AROUND THE CLOCK

Cre­ated for globe-trot­ting fash­ion­istas, the Kosan Go Travel Dress is a phe­no­ma­lly suc­cess­ful Kick­starter project. The wrap de­sign in a four­way stretch fab­ric is comfy whether you’re snooz­ing on a long-haul or cy­cling in Tus­cany. Wrin­kle re­sis­tant, mois­ture wick­ing and fast dry­ing for day-in, day-out wear, and with four hid­den pock­ets, it is prac­ti­cal to a fault. Choose from five colours, for June de­liv­ery. kick­starter.com

Best in town

You may be sur­prised to learn that Rus­sian star bal­le­rina Anna Pavlova, Amer­i­can writer and hu­mourist Mark Twain and avi­a­trix Jean Bat­ten all slept over at Napier’s Art Deco Ma­sonic Ho­tel. Founded in 1861, the fi­nal stage of the ho­tel’s most re­cent re­fur­bish­ment was com­pleted this year, with three suites re­vamped and named in hon­our of the trio. The suites all have spa­cious bed­rooms with luxe bed­ding and king-size beds, stylish en­suite bath­rooms (with Molton Brown toi­letries) and sep­a­rate liv­ing rooms. All have French doors lead­ing onto a bal­cony with views across the city’s Ma­rine Pa­rade and out to the Pa­cific Ocean. ma­sonic.co.nz
