Australia, New Zealand, the South Seas are breathtaking climes in the southern hemisphere. Each itself a place of dreams and longing and for many people, paradise at the other end of the world. Tropical rainforests and uninhabited deserts, endless beaches and the world's largest coral reef, remote cattle ranches, deserted gold mining towns and bustling metropolises all beckon in this unbelievable land of contrasts and superlatives. With its unique flora and fauna the fabulous wilderness of New Zealand lures as well. A third of the country is under environmental protection and is like a wonderland in which time has stood still. The exorcism of picturesque lagoons and the luxuriant flowers of Polynesia transport everyone into a seemingly perpetual and cheerful serenity, the ease of simply being. The selection of exclusive hotels, lodges and resorts here are sublime complements to these extraordinary destinations. Style, comfort and technique combine historical cities, archaic wilderness or remote dreams of nature with the modernity of our times, create breathtaking vistas and at the same time maintain the singular romanticism of these refuges. Between the poles of exceptional, modern architecture or historical hulls of buildings and sportive interiors of straightforward elegance behind the façade, these hospitable establishments fulfill the expectations of their exacting guests. This book will help you make your dreams come true by introducing you to the most beautiful hotels of this charming region.
