A place of class and indulgence, nestled amongst an array of stunning natural landscapes, Nelson Tasman is the perfect escape for anyone looking for a little bit of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Your first day begins with the ultimate adventure, a private helicopter charter over the Abel Tasman National Park. Known for its tranquil turquoise waters, golden sandy beaches and lush native forest, the flight over the park is truly mesmerising. Gliding around the sweeping granite coastline, you’ll descend into the airstrip at Awaroa, where you’ll be treated to a delicious fine dining experience at the Harakeke Restaurant. Your journey back to Nelson Airport will leave you in awe of Tasman Bay’s breath-taking beauty.

Upon your return back to Nelson, while away the afternoon browsing some of the central city art galleries and visiting local artisan jewellers, admiring their delicate craftsmanship.

The evening involves an exceptional dining experience at the top of Trafalgar, with none other than the regions finest delicacies cooked to perfection by Michelin-trained chefs, before a night cap of whisky or a beautiful bespoke cocktail at Kismet, a cocktail bar located in the central city. Satiate your thirst as talented local musicians perform live late into the night, before retreating to the comfort of your luxury hotel just a few doors down.

Alternatively, you could enjoy a night on the Monaco Peninsula, watching from your terraced apartment as the sun sets over the Western Ranges. Right on your doorstep, you’ll find everything you need for a morning of indulgence, from the on-site jewellers to the hairdressers and beauticians. Your private limousine will pick you up shortly before lunch and transport you to the National WOW Museum and Nelson Classic Car Collection. Here, you’ll be immersed in a world of limitless possibilities, with two very distinct, but equally fascinating exhibitions of wearable art garments and classic cars.

The afternoon is designed to appreciate Tasman Bay in all of its glory, dining alfresco on the waterfront, before hopping on board your very own luxury sailing catamaran. Here, you can while away the evening on the bow of the boat, glass of Nelson Tasman wine in your hand and a delicious platter of local cheese, olives and crackers to devour as the sun sets in the distance.
