Kauri Cliffs

Matauri Bay, New Zealand

The more remote, the better. So say golfing aficionados who sometimes travel by helicopter to reach this hideaway resort set on 6,000 acres atop the cliffs of North Island. With 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, the Lodge at Kauri Cliffs has temptations beyond its par-72 PGA Championship course, however. Consider its 3 secluded beaches, the tennis courts and the infinity pool. Or, what about a Kiwi mud wrap (or other indigenous treatment) in its spacious, light-filled spa?
