The Oyster Inn
Jonathan Rutherfurd Best and Andrew Glenn (a former Louis Vuitton exec) opened the Oyster Inn on Waiheke Island in 2012. With a seafood restaurant, shop, and boutique accomodations, it quickly became a hot spot. The three rooms have lofty raked ceilings and white-washed rooms dressed in classic-contemporary style. Local art and Aesop bathroom products add even more appeal. It’s nice to know that a comfortable king bed is not far away after you’ve enjoyed an evening of Te Matuku oysters, line-caught fish, and chardonnay at the on-site restaurant. Located in the main island of Oneroa, the hotel is well-positioned as a base from which to explore Waiheke Island.
