Though it’s just 15 minutes’ drive from the geothermal wonders (and tourist hordes) of Rotorua, this sumptuous and secluded estate might as well occupy its own private planet. Perched along a wooded peninsula that extends into its namesake lake, the lodge—all 7,072 square feet of it—is kitted out with every luxury appointment imaginable, including a private wine cellar, a grand piano, three hangar-size suites with spa bathrooms, and a 24-hour staff including a butler/concierge and a personal chef. Nearly every room is paneled with picture windows that maximize the serene surrounds; if you can’t relax here, consider yourself a lost cause. The lodge is booked to just one party at a time, accommodating up to nine guests.

Insider Tip:

Take a stroll on the nearby Okareka Walkway, a 3.5-mile boardwalk that winds among wetlands and farms.
