Luxury activities: New Zealand
Imagine snuggling up in a comfy armchair overlooking a stunning lake, an ice-cold bottle of champagne within reach and flames from a nearby log fire dancing across the room; or sinking into a huge bed so soft it feels like a giant marshmallow, with plump pillows and crisp sheets.
