Perfect for romantic getaways, we here at Kiwi Collection aren’t the only ones who fell in love at Eagles Nest Luxury Villa in New Zealand. This gorgeous New Zealand hotel was featured at the end of the season finale of The Bachelor last night, before the shocking “After the Final Rose” special where Jason Mesnick (this season’s “Bachelor”) tossed Melissa Rycroft (his soon-to-be wife) aside like a dead toad, opting to give the runner-up Molly Malaney a chance to be with him instead.
Jason and Melissa were filmed swimming together in one of the resort’s fabulous private horizon edged lap pools before relaxing in the Jacuzzi.
Eagles Nest was the perfect backdrop for the formerly happy couple. Nestled in a sub-tropical paradise, this New Zealand retreat is found within a 75-acre estate. Because of its location (the Tapeka tip of the Russells peninsula), Eagles Nest sees some of the region’s best weather, making it the perfect vacation spot year round.
Four of the five world class villas at Eagles Nest offer their own private heated horizon edged lap pools (which provided Melissa with an unobstructed view of the Bay of Islands, clearly distracting her from Jason’s numerous personality flaws).
And, of course, the luxury doesn’t stop at the private pools. Eagles Nest’s talented group of chefs pamper their guests by preparing fantastic (and personalized) meals for them in their villas. They can offer a specially designed menu of freshly caught fish, venison, lamb, crayfish and more while guests enjoy gazing into each others eyes over a glass of fine New Zealand wine.
In such a romantic setting, we think Jason and Melissa could have made it work for the long haul. Thoughts?
Stay tuned for Part Two of “After the Final Rose” tonight at 10 p.m. EST where, if the makers of The Bachelor know what’s best for their ratings, they’ll choose another fabulous Kiwi Collection hotel as a setting for the show!
