Subscribe to BusinessDesk this month and be in to win the weekend of a lifetime – a stay at Kauri Cliffs luxury lodge in Northland, valued at $9800.

The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs rests on an unspoilt coastline where high cliffs give way to three pristine private beaches. It is home to a par-72 PGA championship golf course as well as a world-class luxury spa facility. 

Among many accolades, Kauri Cliffs was named as the only New Zealand Hotel on Conde Nast Traveler’s 2019 Gold List. Here's what the judges said:

“For golfers, it offers the round of a lifetime. Created by late, great course designer, David Harmon, 15 of the 18 holes look out across the ocean, while six play alongside cliffs that drop 200 meters into the sea. Tee-offs require blind hits of faith across coastal chasms.

“But [owner Julian] Robertson’s vision was hardly limited to golfers. There’s a day spa built within a native forest, and sunset barbecues on Friday evenings on the property’s pink-sand beach.
