We’re seriously attached to everything our fine city has to offer, and so when we heard about The Sublime—the most epic, luxurious and expensive 48 hours you can imagine—we knew we’d be remiss if we didn’t share with you asap.

For a cool $25,000, you and your chosen one will be treated to a series of mind-blowing experiences, fine dining, drinking and indulgence, all in the space of two days.

You’ll spend two nights in the spacious and decadent Grand Presidential Suite in the SKYCITY Grand Hotel. Boasting spectacular views over the harbour, you’ll be treated to flowers, champagne, chocolates and a cheese platter when you arrive in your room.

There’s no need to lift a finger during your stay, as you’ll be well cared for by the 24-hour butler service. Each morning, indulge in a champagne breakfast in your room, or enjoy it at the exclusive Gusto at the Grand if you’d prefer.

While you may wonder why on earth you’d ever want to leave your room, the thought of flying by Helitranz helicopter to Waiheke Island to enjoy wine tasting and a lunch platter at one of the exclusive vineyards will get you outta bed quick smart.

Head back to the city a little buzzed and find yourself transported into a world of total relaxation with a luxurious East Duo package at East Day Spa. This escape lasts for 135 minutes and includes a foot soak, massage and facial.

Well rested, it’s time for some adventure! Get a dose of high (literally) adventure at the top of the SkyTower. Jump off or walk around, it’s up to you. All the thrills.

For dinner, one night you can call on four of your friends to join you at either The Grill or MASU. The other, head to the 53rd level of the SkyTower and enjoy a degustation dinner with wine matches at The Sugar Club.  

You can have a wee sleep in on your last morning with a 12pm check out. And while you’re sure to have a picture-perfect memory of your weekend (and loads of Insta posts to look back on) this is one experience you will never, ever forget.

Why? Because, while you’ll take home a hamper package filled with tasty oils, coffee cups and cook books you also—get this—take home the Super King bed, like you’ve been staying on. You’ll spend the next decade dreaming of the epic weekend that was. And, if that wasn’t quite enough, you’ll also be sent a piece of Max Gimblett art for your home.
