Recharge: Cuisine and Culture Couple


This is the perfect romantic couple’s escape, to unwind and dip your toes into the cuisine, history, and culture of historic Russell.

You’ll check in to your first night of two at The Duke of Marlborough, a beautiful old historic hotel restaurant – it’s right on the Russel Waterfront and the veranda views are spectacular. That night, enjoy the funky fun atmosphere of Charlottes Kitchen with a 2-course dinner at this social and contemporary dining experience.

The next morning you’ll join a mini-tour of Russell by coach. The informative hour-long tour takes you through New Zealand’s most historic town, including past Flagstaff Hill out to Tapeka Point and over to Long Beach.

Later that day, you’ll be treated to a 4-hour driven wine tour with Rogue Pony Wine, tastings all included. You will visit a variety of wineries as well as some gorgeous lookout points, all with engaging backstories from your local guide.

That night you can relax back at the Duke with a 2 course dinner – the menu is absolutely superb and you must try and get a table with a view of the sunset – before retiring to your room for a well-deserved good night’s sleep.
