This was the luxury journey to end all luxury trips: staying at at four of the best resorts in New Zealand - three of them judged among the best hideaway spots in the world.
The assignment: Six days and seven nights to enjoy Matakauri, Blanket Bay, Eichardt's, and Millbrook, all located in and around picturesque Queenstown.
My wife Chrissy and I land at the Adventure Capital of the world at 5pm and threw ourselves at the mercy of the warm and sincere staff at Matakauri Lodge, one of the top 101 hotels of the world according to Tatler magazine.
General manager Grant Alley and his staff were first rate. Our room had a stunning view - we were in heaven. We even received a little Kiwi fluffy soft toy as a go-away present.
