This intimate island-style hotel started its life as the small holiday cottage of designer David Scott. His dream of one day sharing this special place with others was realised with its perfectly executed transformation to what is now one of New Zealand's best loved small hotels. Today it is run by David's son Jonathan, who brings the creative attention to detail that really defines what a boutique "unique experience" hotel is all about. Each luxury designer suite is totally private with panoramic ocean views. Private all-day dining for guests is a wonderful way to make the most of the hotel's beautiful architecture, art and the local surrounds. Walk on the beach, read a book in the sun, relax and be pampered while on Waiheke.
