‘Marino’ in Maori translates as meaning ‘calm’, and this luxury property on the sea front certainly lives up to its name. A safe haven for exotic plant life and magnificent animals, you cannot help but be awe-struck by your surroundings.
Set on the north western end of Waiheke Island, Marino Ridge is a short trip away from Auckland, by sea or by air. We recommend taking the romantic seaplane journey and being met by your private transfer at the other side.
Luxury linens and earthy colors adorn the rustic-style suites here. Make sure you pick a room commanding the extraordinary views of Owhanake Bay, which you can enjoy from your private decking.
Why we like it
Whether dining on the veranda, or relaxing in the pool, you’ll enjoy an overwhelming sense of space and seclusion. This is an utterly peaceful property and we can’t think of a better place to while away your days.
