Have you heard about our sister property? New Zealand Business Entrepreneur Juliearna Kavanagh is not only responsible for the Hop on Hop off Wine and Beer Tour success but she also owns the stunning Escape to Picton Boutique Hotel and Restaurant. Situated in the previous Bank of New Zealand building, Escape to Picton has one of the best spots in all of Picton – right on the waterfront! Here we’re going to delve a little deeper into the meaning behind the stunning properties decor and of course the fantastic culinary options.
The property prides itself on the thought behind the magic. Each suite was designed to be completely different from the next whilst still retaining the same charm and luxury expected at a boutique hotel. A safe haven at the end of the day! The vision for the property is that they want guests to leave feeling more at home here than anywhere else in the world.
The Sea Room: Based on the core of New Zealand – the Sea! Many Kiwis share a strong affiliation for the sea – they feel it calling them home. Our memories are filled with trips to the beach for family time and lots and lots of crustaceans! This room represents just that – our owners love for the sea and for home! The room features a stunning stand alone classic French tub – perfect for relaxing with a glass of Pinot at the end of a day on the Sounds!
The Formal Suite – Based on the Victorian era and world renowned New Zealand writer Katherine Manfield. This suite provides our guests with the space to relax and unwind in tasteful and polished grace. This suite features a classic French tub and chandeliers in both the bedroom and the bathroom – providing a taste of what luxury used to be!
The Modern Suite – Perfect for guests wanting a contemporary feel with modern luxuries! This suite is based on the need for understated grace. A twist on the classic design of the rest of the property. This room boasts its own spa bath with its own bedroom and fireplace. However, the jewel in the crown is the view! Panoramic shots of both the Sounds and Downtown.
Rooms vary in nightly price from $350-$495 NZD and include breakfast, a champagne platter on arrival, free parking and wifi.
