Set in one hectare of private New Zealand native forest near Tongariro National Park, the new luxury lodge is accessed via a 50-meter boardwalk only with skylights in the lodges ceiling allowing guests to star gaze throughout the evening.
Founder of New Zealand In Depth, Paul Carberry, said; “New Nightsky cottage gives guests a perfect combination of luxury, isolation, wilderness, and with a wide range of exciting activities on the doorstep will provide the perfect place for a family adventure. As the evening draws in our guests can sit back to admire some of the best views of New Zealand’s night sky.”
At 90 square meters and with 2 bedrooms each including luxury King size beds, the lodge offers spacious but cosy living with each room making the most of views out to the native New Zealand wilderness beyond.
With all of the home comforts in luxuries you would expect from a luxury Lodge, the Nightsky Cottage also comes with a fully kitchen, lounge area, outdoor veranda with a barbeque, and a private picnic area in a native bush clearing. In the bathroom, two side by side freestanding baths along with bath salts and candles await guests to relax and unwind.
Committed to creating a sustainable experience for guests’ the new lodge has adopted a zero waste policy; it’s unlikely but you will find a single used plastic item in the cottage as any plastic used is fully recyclable or reusable. The cottage even collects and processes its own water.
As the new Nightsky Cottage is located on the edge of Tongariro National Park guests will have the opportunity to undertake a wide range of activities weather hiking, cycling, quad biking, river rafting or taking a spectacular scenic helicopter flight over the National Park.
