Are you finding it difficult to get a good night’s sleep? Maybe you’re living near a busy road or perhaps you just need a get away for some peace and quiet. In New Zealand, there’s an exceptional place to rest your head, and it has the most magnificent views of cosmos.

PurePods are sleekly designed glass sleeping pods in some of the most magical spots in NZ. Curtains and blinds have been ditched so guests can enjoy uninterrupted and unbelievably scenic views of the country’s magnificent landscape and clear skies.

As for in-house entertainment, there is none, so treat yourself to a digital detox and revel in all that nature has to offer. You won’t find any TVs, movies, or Wi-Fi, just a Bluetooth speaker for your favourite relaxation tracks.

The most popular overnight option is the Manakau Pod, which features unbeatable views of the Seaward Kaikoura Mountain range. Situated 20 minutes inland from Kaikoura, a leisurely hike through a grove is the main mode of transport to the room, which is right in the middle of a peaceful paddock.
