Though Auckland has rapidly matured as a destination, it has long lacked the breadth of accommodations you’d expect from a busy city. The best hotels in Auckland range from boutique owner-operated Hotel DeBretts in the heart of the city to the uber-premium, single-occupancy St Marys Residence in the very desirable St Marys Bay. In between are some excellent five-star hotels that are great for family getaways or romantic trips. There are also fine temptations further afield on Waiheke Island—the outcrop that began as a hippie haven and has since become an enclave for the well-heeled set and their holiday homes. There’s also an unforgettable glamping experience called Wainamu on the wildly elemental west coast—lose yourself in nature here, then close the day in a steaming bath beneath the starry night sky.
