    Hanmer Springs - Shut your eyes. Imagine lazing in a steamy private hot pool with someone special at New Zealand’s top thermal pool resort – Hanmer Springs. The sun is setting over the picture postcard snow-capped mountains. Not a sound can be heard but the occasional bellbird call. It feels so romantic. But there are more these days to Hanmer than just the busiest hot pools in New Zealand.

We are shading ourselves from the scorching sun under the terracotta tile-roof summer house at a stunning plush luxury lodge - Hope Villa - 20 minutes south east of Christchurch international airport.

New Zealand and Christchurch tourism have been savaged by a series of earthquakes since September 4 but the accolades just announced by Trip Advisor for Akaroa are a huge boost to the battered region.
