This was probably our fifth visit to Carrington Resort.
We married here back in 2010 when it was part of Heritage Hotels, so knew what to expect.
It is still our favourite place to be, we can't get enough of that pool and library.
Under the new Peppers umbrella only a little has changed.
The products supplied in the room are all peppers and no longer have a NZ feel about them.
But fair enough, most people wouldn't even notice or care about that.
Everything else is just as good. The friendly service, from everyone from the cleaners through to the groundsmen, the rooms, the pool, the library, the gym, the restaurant, the winery all still as superb as we remember it.
It was a very nice touch to leave us a personal welcome back note with a complimentary bottle of wine decorated with rose petals. Very well received and unexpected treat, so thank you.
We had a lovely Wedding Anniversary.
If you want to treat yourself to a secluded romantic getaway, don't go overseas, take the drive north and stay here...you'll be glad you did. You don't have to be a golfer to enjoy this place.:)
If you do, make sure you visit Matai Bay down the road, best bay of the far north in my opinion.
Also go for a walk along the private access to Karikari beach. This is where we had our wedding photo's done. Sands are so white and sea so blue people thought we got married on a tropical island.
Don't wait, just go. :)
