Guests can expect a warm welcome and generous hospitality at the fabulous Greenmantle Estate is a 5-star country house in Kapiti along the western coast at the lower end of New Zealand’s North Island, not far away from the capital, Wellington. It makes the perfect tranquil rural retreat, set amid lush gardens which include water features and manicured lawns, against a backdrop of forest and bird song. It also offers a high class of accommodation, amenities as well as impressive dining options for fun with friends or a romantic evening. Getting here involves a 50-minute drive from Wellington airport.
The hotel consists of six private suites – four in the main building and two nestled in the surrounding bush – each with a warm and inviting atmosphere, each with its own balcony or terrace for spectacular views of the surrounding forest. They’re each individually appointed with their own character, but generally reflect a country-cottage feel, with luxury linens, classic furnishings and generous amenities including generous king beds, separate seating areas, work desks, flat-screen TVs, high thread-count bedding, fluffy pillows and well-appointed bathrooms.
The hotel is surrounded by acres of lush forest which is an adventurer’s paradise offering outdoor activities galore, such as hiking, mountain biking and horse riding. There’s also the opportunity to enjoy various various water sports at the nearby Paraparaumu beach, such as kayaking, fishing, swimming or diving. Or, you could just relax at the hotel’s outdoor pool, take a workout in the gym or unwind in the sauna before a spa treatment. If you fancy discovering things further afield, New Zealand’s capital, Wellington is 50 minutes away.
The hotel’s convivial owners host dinner each night around its big communal dining table where guests have the opportunity to mingle beforehand over a glass of prosecco before enjoying a gourmet meal, a bit of discussion about the food and the local ingredients, along with fine wine. For those looking for a more intimate dining experience, the hotel can arrange a quiet candlelit dinner.
