Annandale Homestead

Annandale Homestead

So remote that it’s best approached by helicopter, the Annandale is situated in a breathtaking secluded bay, making it an ideal choice to really get away from it all on a luxury holiday in New Zealand. With incredible villas of various sizes, with well stocked bar, exceptional cuisine and an advanced fitness centre, this is the perfect way to experience peace and tranquillity in private.

Villa living

Find your favoured choice from a line of four beautifully proportioned villas, all elegantly finished in fine quality and their own unique style. Revive and relax in your own private outdoor bathtub or enjoy awe-inspiring seascape views from a hot tub placed on your balcony. Each of the individual villas offered at Annandale creates a sense of perfect peace and ultimate privacy, but for those who travel with an entourage in tow, there’s a villa that can house up to fourteen guests in luxury comfort.

Dining delights with a private chef

An impressive variety of gourmet treats awaits your insatiable appetite at Annandale. Dine in your own villa from a specially selected choice of dishes, picked by you before you even arrive. You can also hire the private chef who will cook up wonders for you in your kitchen from lobster rolls to cherry semifreddo as requested. All villa kitchens are complete with a very well stocked bar with everything from cold drinks to locally sourced beer.

Incredible activities

As you might expect in such a highly acclaimed New Zealand resort, Annandale provides unrivalled activities for its guests to enjoy. Among other sports you can enjoy floodlit tennis into the evening or try some laps of the crystal blue pool. Restore your body to wellness in the glass walled luxury fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment and the opportunity for expert advice from a personal trainer.
