In about a week, as India begins touring New Zealand days after the T20 World Cup ends in Australia, where India take on England in the semi-finals today, New Zealand has prepared the ground not just for the visiting cricketers but also cricket fans.
It has prepared unique glamping options for the die-hard fans who can stay right there at Eden Park in Auckland and watch the fierce contest unveil right in front of their eyes.
A press statement says that this unique glamping experience is perfect for sports fans, offering an elevated perspective of the revered field of Eden Park from the luxury of a dome. “It is a little different from any typical secluded, nature-based glamping experiences because it’s located in the heart of Auckland – an ideal choice if you want a wonderful night away without having to go very far. The stay comes with a free stadium tour to get a real sense of what happens behind the scenes, with expert historians with a love for sports and Eden Park leading the tours,’’ says the statement.
The press release adds that one can also check out more glamping spots in New Zealand – from one with outdoor bathtubs and spectacular views, to those with cosy fires and spacious decks. Here are some:
Go off-grid with your mates at Valley Views
For the ultimate getaway, get a group of mates together and stay at Valley Views Glamping. There are six off-grid, solar-powered dome tents and a large communal kitchen with a potbelly stove. Take turns soaking in the outdoor twin baths with epic views of the Waitaki Valley then hang out together with a guitar and marshmallows in front of the fire pit.
Experience glamping in a wine region at Clifton Glamping
Expect fresh coastal air and pure relaxation at Clifton Glamping in Hawke’s Bay. The tents are placed atop a sunny hilltop with outdoor baths and luxurious furnishings inside. This is the visitors’ chance to step away from the daily stresses of life. Self-catering is easy with the fully equipped kitchen and barbeque. Or one can let the hosts take care of catering with a private chef or check out the many cellar doors in the Napier region.
Go glamping near dolphins, penguins and alpacas near Akaroa
Next time one wants to go swimming with dolphins or hanging out with penguins and alpacas in Akaroa, one can take the 45-minute drive to The Green Antler glamping spot for a couple of nights. The two-bedroom, family-friendly tent sleeps five people and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Explore the Banks Peninsula by day and soak into the wood-fired hot tub at night. This is pure uninterrupted bliss.
