DELAMORE LODGE AND ITS REIGN OVER WAIHEKE ISLAND HOTELS

A Tale of Love, Privacy, Exclusivity and Luxury at Delamore Lodge

I am always surprised and inspired by the diversity, innovation and personality within the luxury hotel market today, and the story of the Delamore Lodge is up there with the best of all the Waiheke island hotels. This chic resort is located on New Zealand’s Waiheke Island — the most beautiful island that you’ve never heard of.

Founder and owner of the resort, Roselyn Barnett Storey, is a powerful businesswoman whose previous career and day-to-day life was markedly different to the one she knows today. Yet this former CEO and head of large, multi-national corporations has never forgotten her other ambitions along the way.

‘My background has been corporate, in the people industry… Another passion was building and renovating. Both came together, perfectly aligning to bring about Delamore Lodge.’
