We are delighted to announce that during autumn we were quality certified as ‘Boutique and Lodge’ by New’s Zealand tourism’s quality arm, ‘Qualmark’. We also achieved TripAdvisor’s “Certificate of Excellent 214″ - in the top 10% of reviews – for the third year running.
It is still 21 degrees in our sheltered garden in mid-June, as we write this, . Although it’s a quiet time of year to visit, there are some wonderful days of blue skies and warm sunshine.
If you’re idea of heaven is strolling along deserted, white sandy beaches then this is a fine time. Why not consider our romantic getaway package?
We never rest on our laurels, so over winter we are continuing to improve the lodge and its ground with a new log fireplace in our guest lounge, and a ‘makeover’ for some of our favourite garden spots; including a more tropical focus of heliconias, gingers and bananas in our pool area, a new entrance way to the terrace for our Cottage guests and rejuvenated floral garden beds along our driveway entrance and opposite the moon gate pond.
Stay tuned to our web site, and our Facebook page. We’ll post photos to update friends as the works progress.
Romantic Dining for Two
We’ve settled into some delightful Autumnal weather here at MGV, and we are pleased to announce the return of our ”half price’ dinners for two. Very popular last year, many folk found the combination of staying at Moon Gate, spending at day exploring the surrounds then enjoying a relaxing night with an in-suite dinner a sublime experience.
Dinner is served directly in room and you ‘pop the dishes’ outside your door’ for the Moon Gate fairies to whisk away once you’ve enjoyed your meal. Stay 2 nights in our premium suite, and we offer this option for the bargain price of an additional $49 per booking.
Why not combine this with a luxurious massage? Or perhaps our bubbles and canapés on arrival? We’re sure you deserve it! For details, check out our specials page.
We are always looking for ways to improve our rooms and make your stay just a little more special. During spring, we had a delightful, recently married young couple stay with us, and like many always travelled with their smart phone crammed with their favourite music. On their departure, they remarked how wonderful everything had been, but suggested that a way to play their music in their suite would have made it even more perfect.
Well, we listened. We are pleased to announce that all three suites have had their entertainment systems upgraded to include Bluetooth capable sound bars to compliment the TV and movie services. You can now listen to high quality sound whilst watching our movie selection, and techno travellers can pair their iPhone or Android device wirelessly to the speaker system, and listen to their own music in high quality stereo or surround.
Keep those suggestions coming!
