The pristine wilderness of New Zealand’s Ahuriri Valley, North Otago is the perfect foil for these rather glamorous new Lindis Pods. Part of eco-retreat The Lindis (already on our wish list!) the three pods are surrounded by conservation parks, mountains and beech forest on the 2428-hectare Ben Avon Station. Just a short walk from the main lodge, they’re specifically designed for two and use seamless double-glazed mirrored glass walls to spectacular effect. “The mirrored finish takes the pod and all but makes it disappear as it reflects the surrounding skies, mountains, and tussocked hills, yet from the inside the one-way glass provides a spectacular view that makes the most of the lodge’s unique location,” says Sally Lilley, Director at New Zealand In Depth. “This is the perfect destination for couples looking for the ultimate privacy and escape.”
The pods have been created using the same sustainable design principles as the main lodge and enjoy access to all the fine dining and adventures (think fly fishing, hiking, e-biking and horse riding) showcased at this exceptional South Island escape. NZ travel experts New Zealand in Depth offers a ten-night luxury New Zealand itinerary that includes two nights at the Lindis Pods with dinner. Sign us up!
