Waipuna Estate Romantic Escape
It’s Valentine’s Day all year round at Waipuna Estate, with our fabulous Romantic Escape experience! Why not whisk your loved one away for a night of complete luxury, relaxation, and delicious food and wine! This exciting package will earn you plenty of brownie points, whether you are in a brand new relationship, have been together for years and want to make a grand gesture to your partner, are celebrating a special anniversary, or even thinking of proposing!
So what’s included?!
Scenic helicopter flight and delivery to Waipuna
You and your partner will be picked up from your home, hotel or Christchurch Airport, and taken to Garden City Helicopter’s helipad. After enjoying a fabulous 45 minute scenic flight, taking in the patchwork of the Canterbury plains, the majestic Southern Alps, and the region’s rivers, lakes and rugged coastline, you will land at Waipuna to start your magical romantic escape.
Aperitif and nibbles
You will be greeted with an aperitif and nibbles to enjoy as you slip into relaxation mode, before settling into your luxurious accommodation in our lavish Kowhai room. A large, private bathroom complete with double shower and a deep bath are perfect for soaking away the stresses of the day.
Five course degustation dinner with your own personal chef
Jacob McKerrow, also known as The Bespoke Chef will be your personal chef for the evening, creating a romantic five course gourmet degustation meal for you, complete with matching wines. Enjoy stunning views and Waipuna’s spectacular surroundings as you dine, watch the sun set, and relish in each other’s company, in an intimate, exclusive setting.
There are many options for relaxing after dinner. You could wander around Waipuna’s expansive grounds, enjoy a glass of wine in the spa, or settle into your super king sized bed, where you are assured a peaceful night’s sleep in tranquil surroundings.
In the morning you can choose one of Waipuna’s delectable Contintental or cooked breakfasts, prepared by your host using the freshest local ingredients. Then you will be transported back home, refreshed, relaxed and reinvigorated.
We’re big on love
Celebrating love is a big part of what we do at Waipuna, and we’d love to help create a special romantic getaway for you and your partner.
Our Romantic Escape package is subject to availability. Please enquire for available dates and rates.
What our Romantic Escape guests say…
The view from Waipuna and the sunset was stunning. Jacob’s dinner last night was superb. The flight today was perfect!
The whole experience from Jonathan’s pickup from my house (and delivery this afternoon from GCH to home), to your and Merv’s hospitality (and flowers today), Jacob’s amazing food creations, Fiona’s breakfast this morning, and Jordon’s flight across to Akaroa was all such a treat.
I can’t think of a better way to spend a birthday.
Thank you, Sarah, for putting it all together.
