Helena Bay Lodge

Russian steel magnate Alexander Abramov has officially opened his new spectacular $50 million attraction in New Zealand. Called Helena Bay Lodge, this magnificent retreat aims to be the country’s finest coastal luxury lodge, capable of accommodating up to ten guests at a time in two extraordinary beachfront guest villas.

Surrounded by 800 acres of beautiful greenery and peaceful shores, this lavish retreat delivers the ultimate exclusivity, and once you realize the team of Michelin-starred Don Alfonso 1890 is in charge of your dining experience here, you’ll start daydreaming and making plans on how to get there as soon as possible.

This opulent European-style lodge also allows guests to enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities, such as tennis, hiking, mountain biking, paddleboarding, and many other adventures.

The two villas which make the Helena Bay Lodge offer a clear view of the shoreline and the blissful South Pacific Ocean, each villa comprising five glamorous suites and coming with five staff members to cater to every single guest. How’s that for feeling spoiled?

Reaching the Helena Bay Lodge is an amazing experience in itself, and it involves climbing aboard a private Augusta Westland AW109 S Grand helicopter that will take you here in style; but that’s not all this luxurious retreat has to offer. It also includes a gallery wing with comfortable sitting rooms and a library, and a stunning spa, which features a massage room, a cold plunge pool, and a sauna and steam room.

Those of you who are more active will probably appreciate the fitness room, which comes with all of the necessities to burn some calories and the evenings here will be totally memorable as well, with the wine list as impressive as the gourmet meals they are paired with.
