Members of Expectations Holidays are afforded a worldwide choice of award-winning resorts in many of the most incredible locations the world has to offer. If you were a member looking for a holiday to escape the end of year winter blues then this holiday to the RCI Gold Crown Club Paihia in New Zealand’s North Island was available between 21st November – 1st of December 2015 for a 10-night stay. Available to book at the end of March 2015 this holiday staying in a spacious 2-bedroom apartment, sleeping 6-people comfortably, could have been yours for just 77,760 points via the RCI website. The majority of New Zealand enjoys around 2000 hours of sunshine each year and Paihia is no exception with temperatures in November likely to be around a pleasant 17-20 Degrees C.
Visitors to Club Paihia can look forward to tastefully decorated apartments that boast views of the resorts lush 6 ½ acre native bushland grounds and are situated a mere stones throw from the soft sand of Paihia Beach.
Relish the peaceful nature of this resort with a soothing dip in one of the spa pools cooling off from the pleasing local climate, spend some time in the rejuvenating sauna or wander the private bush track of an afternoon. Work up a sweat at the gym or take each other on in a friendly game at the tennis courts whilst a slower pace can be enjoyed with a game of giant novelty chess or Pétanque if that’s more your persuasion. Indulge at dinner time at this natural holiday haven with an al fresco BBQ taking in the innate beauty of the region as the kids tear around in the children’s playground.
Aptly named the Bay of Islands for the 144 distinctive islands that fill this bay it’s an area bursting with beauty and an intricate Maori past waiting for you to discover it. Auckland, home to a 1/3 of New Zealand’s population, is situated just a few hours by car to the South of Piahia if you long for a day in the city but with all this natural local beauty you’d be forgiven for never wanting to leave. To gain an insight into New Zealand’s past a visit to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds is a must see and is the place where Maori chiefs first met with the British to found what we now know as New Zealand.
A diverse underwater world surrounds the Bay of Islands so take the plunge with a Paihia Dive and explore local shipwreck sites and rich coral reefs up close for yourself. Discover the “hole in the rock” and be amazed by friendly common and bottle-nose dolphins whom you have the chance to jump in and swim with on an abundance of sea-excursions. Further out from the Bay numerous fishing world-records have been set, particularly for Striped Marlin and Yellow Tail Kingfish, think you can take on these powerful creatures?
You’ll find the famous 90-mile beach that doubles as a highway on the North-Eastern tip of New Zealand, which is in fact only 88km long but is still a strikingly beautiful sight nonetheless! Active visitors to the Northland are sure to be impressed by the Twin Coast Cycle Trail which runs from Hokianga Harbour through rural farmland and an area of rich culture before joining up with the Bay of Islands at Opua. If you have the kids in tow then they are sure to love the Action World adventure park where high wires and numerous soft play areas are at their finger tips for a fun-packed family day-out!
