There is glamping, and then there is glamping on the south island of New Zealand.
The enchanting Valley Views Glamping retreat has unrivalled views of the picturesque Waitaki Valley. But it is at night when the views in this place really come to life as stars whip across an impossibly dark sky.
Scattered haphazardly throughout the retreat are six, exclusive domes ranging from six to seven metres in diameter.
Each dome is designed with five star comforts while also looking over a seven-hectare forest which is ripe for exploring during the day.
Now for the best part…. On the property, there are two sets of twin, outdoor tubs, one with uninterrupted views of the valley. Best enjoyed with a New Zealand pinot at sunset.
Do yourself a favour and get across the ditch asap, because this is unrivalled luxury stargazing.
