We are developing the Lucid Directory and, to make it better and encourage people to spread the word, we are trialling a referral program. If you want to earn a little cash, feel free to sign-up. We intend to make the Lucid Directory one of the best tourism directories in New Zealand.

The way it works is that once you sign-up, you will be given a simple referral link that you can put on your blog, email out or do whatever you want with.

We will credit NZD $10.00 (incl. GST) to your account for anyone who takes out a paid subscription within 30 days of clicking your referral link. Simple as that.

Find out more about what makes the Lucid Directory different.

Congratulations to Eagles Nest for being given a 98.9% rating as one of the hotels in the world for ambiance and design.

This is what the judges had to say:

High on a bluff overlooking the Bay of Islands on New Zealand’s North Island, the five-villa Eagles Nest combines privacy and great service with style.

The ultra-chic villas are a slick design fantasy with glass walls and chrome bathrooms. Four villas have infinity-edged lap pools overlooking the ocean.

The extensive wine cellar stocks the best New Zealand and Australian wines.

The resort’s chefs provide in-villa dining, and in-villa massage and fitness sessions with a personal trainer can be arranged.

Activities include waterskiing, diving, kayaking, tennis and golf.

Doubles from NZ$1,407
