Stewart Island, New Zealand
With views over the small hamlet of Halfmoon Bay and the bush-clad hills on Stewart Island, the Bay Hotel offers comfortable lodging at the edge of Rakiura National Park, where the kiwi bird can still be viewed in its natural habitat. Nine studio units with en suite bathroom, basic cooking facilities, television, Wi-Fi and complimentary tea and coffee are located within walking distance of the town’s shops and restaurants. Simple, contemporary decor in the rooms includes mission-style headboards, dining table and a comfortable couch. Relax in front of your expanse of windows to take in the famous sunrises, or your deck to enjoy the afternoon sun—a sense of bringing Stewart Island’s nature in.
