Travel New Zealands South Island with Boutique Escapes

Looking for the perfect

New Zealand Holiday?


At Boutique Escapes we're passionate about our beautiful country. New Zealand's South Island has been called the "Paradise of the Pacific" since the early 1800s. Travellers agree New Zealand deserves this description and  New Zealand was voted top country (again) by the readers of UK-based travel publication Wanderlust.


From mountains to rainforest, from glaciers to deserted beaches, unsurpassed natural beauty to overwhelm your senses. Rugged, gentle, romantic, wild, remote, welcoming. We know how to make your holiday a Unique Experience and specialize in Boutique Lodges and unique experiences to enhance your journey.


Boutique Escapes are the perfect way to visit the South Island's main tourist attractions but also the not to be missed highlights off the main tourist routes.


Boutique Escapes give you the option of self-drive, coach or train transport and for longer distances airfares are included. Accommodation has been carefully selected at Boutique Lodges and for family holidays we combine Farmstays and Deluxe apartments for convenience and fun.


The suggestions on this website can be combined in countless different ways and we always relish the challenge of arranging a tailor-made holiday just for you. If you can imagine it, we can make it happen!

Remember the best places in New Zealand are often booked out during the summer months so plan your trip early to avoid disappointment.
