South Island

Luxury South Island — Experiences, Lifestyles, Travel

Luxury South Island: Referred to by the Maori as as Te Waipounamu, New Zealand’s South Island – the largest of the country’s three major islands (and the 12th biggest on the planet) – boasts generally mild weather and magnificent scenery. Residents of this Australasian island (approximately 20 per cent of the country’s total population) are justifiably proud of the many wonderful things to see and do here, as well as its many beautiful spots to visit, points of interest, and attractions. Popular destinations are lovely Queenstown – especially for those looking to buy luxury real estate – and picturesque Blanket Bay.

Like its North Island neighbour, a great way to explore the island is by car (many rental companies, including those at South Island Airport, will even provide self-drive itineraries). Popular do-it-yourself luxury travel options include spending time at a boutique luxury hotel or villa, in an award-winning luxury lodge, or at any number of unique accommodations and retreats. Alternatively, there are a number of travel specialists willing to do the work for you, providing exclusive luxury tours that include time spent in top luxury hotels and resorts.

Let Luxury New Zealand be your guide to the top luxury experiences, lifestyles, and travel opportunities in the country’s stunning South Island.
