Oyster Inn, NZ


Images from here & here

Isn't this seaside hotel pretty? I recently read an article on The Oyster Inn and fell in love with its understated yet elegant design. This part hotel, part restaurant is situated on Waiheke Island, a short 35minute hop from Auckland. The guestrooms (only 3 rooms) are designed based on the classic Kiwi 'bach', a vernacular beach house that New Zealanders grew up with.  Keeping the aesthetics simple and warm - each room comes with king-sized beds, merino wool blankets, waffle cotton bathrobes and AESOP bathroom amenities. One of the cutest things on offer is the pickup from the ferry pier by the hotel's yellow vintage VW Kombi. A lovely little place for a quick escape from city life. Something I really need after an intense week at work (hence the infrequent updates on the blog), I'm so glad the weekend is near. You can find out more about the hotel on their website.

this place totally looks like somewhere I would want to visit when in NZ sometime later in this year! Thanks for sharing it.

And to answer your question that cafe you were asking about on my blog was a random cafe I passed by walking along the streets in Singapore. Thus don't have the name with me. If I ever retrieved any related info i'll be sure to update!
