New Zealand is now home to a growing number of ‘micro hotels ‘ – luxury accommodations that host a smaller number of guests in sophisticated, boutique settings.
Let us introduce you to one of the best - The Oyster Inn, on Waiheke Island.
Beautiful Waiheke Island, with its world-class beaches and award-winning vineyards, is just a short ferry cruise from Auckland city.
The Oyster Inn is nestled on a coastal road in the island village of Oneroa, positioned to take in panoramic views across the Pacific Ocean.
One of our favourite aspects of holidaying here are the simply yet very chic guest rooms, offering understated luxury. There are just three guest rooms in total, making The Oyster Inn a peaceful, private escape.
Each guest room features collections of contemporary New Zealand art; super king beds with luxury bed linen, the finest New Zealand merino wool blankets and goose down pillows; and luxury bathroom amenities (including GHD hairdryers and premium products by international brand AESOP).
Spend the morning lounging in your soft waffle robe as you soak in the breathtaking ocean views and enjoy a sumptuous complimentary breakfast.
After a blissful day exploring Waiheke and her many treasures, head back to the hotel bar and enjoy fresh oysters, matched with a curated edit of the island’s best wines (the Chardonnays are particularly impressive), or a brilliant New Zealand craft beer.
The Oyster Inn boasts its own stylish eatery. Designed by celebrated interior designer Katie Lockhart, the restaurant features classic bentwood furniture and tongue-and-groove panelling for a luxury seaside vibe.
There’s an ambience here we just know you’ll fall in love with – whether bathed in sunlight and sweeping sea views during the day, or twinkling with candlelight in the evening. Sample some of New Zealand’s best wines from the island’s famed vineyards, and taste for yourself why The Oyster Inn’s restaurant is a multiple award winner.
The Oyster Inn restaurant serves only the freshest New Zealand seafood, and prides itself on supporting local and artisanal food producers. Be sure to try Waiheke’s sensational olive oils, blind-voted among the world’s best!
A holiday to New Zealand wouldn't be complete without a meal of Fish & Chips on the beach. The Oyster Inn has you covered with its boutique Fish & Chippery.

For a New Zealand holiday experience you’ll never forget, let us arrange a seaplane to fly you out to Waiheke Island. Experience a water take-off from the Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour, and soar over the hundreds of yachts and pleasure craft that give Auckland its ‘City of Sails’ sobriquet.
After seeing Waiheke Island’s beauty from the air, you’ll touch down in the sparkling waters of Oneroa Bay where your hosts will be waiting to drive you to your luxury accommodation at the Inn.
