This contemporary resort, on the outer edge of Christchurch city, is wrapped around several small lakes and a large golf course. The rooms and suites are kick-your-shoes-off-and sprawl-across-the-bed spaces with warm carpets, king-sized beds and crisp linens. All have full or partial water views and the smart restaurant has a ring-side seat over the water. Clearwater is home of ISPS Handa NZ Women's Open and can be booked out at tournament times. It is one of just a handful of resort-style accommodations in the region.
