Off the Map

Exotic luxury, sophisticated interiors, gourmet farm-to-table dining, pampering—and, above all, tranquility—make The Kinloch Club one of the world's hautest escapes.
The Lodge at The Kinloch Club on the shores of Lake Taupo in Taupo, New Zealand, overlooks a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course.

The sun sets over New Zealand’s Lake Taupo as I make my way to The Lodge at The Kinloch Club (rooms from $586 per night), which recently won the Supreme New Zealand Architecture Award from the New Zealand Institute of Architects and is the newest luxury resort on the country’s North Island. The stars dot the pitch-black sky, and it seems like I’m completely alone. “Would you like a throw to stay warm?” offers Ken McTague, the duty manager at the lodge, as he gestures toward a golf cart that will take me to my villa. It’s my home for the next three days, and I’m excited to soak in all the stillness and solitude. This is my favorite type of place to get lost in; there is nothing here to distract me—only space and peace to breathe deeply and marvel at the beauty of nature.
