It’s the height of summer in New Zealand and, needless to say, South Island is lovely this time of the year. Ravaged by an earthquake last year, its biggest city Christchurch is beginning to get back on its feet. Here’s your chance to help boost its economy while having a holiday at the same time. A quick stroll from the city center and nestled amid landscaped greenery between the Mona Vale gardens and Hagley Park is Chateau on the Park. This 4-star hotel is offering a “Cheap as Chups” (it’s Kiwi for “Crikey, what a bargain!”) deal which includes a Premier Room from NZ$150 ($145) a night, with a personal foot-spa, free Internet, parking and buffet breakfast. Regular rates average NZ$350 ($340); netting you a saving of around 60 percent. This deal, which runs through Mar 20, is only available via the Wotif portal, so log on to www.wotif.com/hotelW469 to book now.
