Relaxation on Rakiura

PurePods are gaining popularity all over the world, and recently, two of the luxe glass cabins have popped up on Rakiura Stewart Island. The Hananui and Tokoeka pods are nestled into Mamaku Point Conservation Reserve and are perfectly poised to make the most of the nearby native bush, secluded white sand beaches and Dark Sky Sanctuary above.

As Seen on Screen

We’ve spent the past two years watching the world through movies and streaming platforms but now we can finally venture out and see the real deal. This week, we look at a Hollywood icon’s favourite haunts.

You watched: Blonde, on Netflix

Go to: Los Angeles, California

While the movie script spurred controversy, the filming locations reflected the Los Angeles Marilyn Monroe knew and loved. For the ultimate Marilyn vibes, head to the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel on Hollywood Blvd, where you can even book a stay in the starlet’s favourite room, or the Beverly Carlton Hotel (now the Avalon), where Monroe once lived and spent many hours by the hotel pool.

Fans will love the Marilyn Monroe Los Angeles Tour, which swings by a range of her city residences, including several that were used in the movie. The four-hour jaunt also takes in the icon’s star on the Walk of Fame, and Canter’s Deli, the West Hollywood eatery where Monroe often dined with her third husband, Arthur Miller.

For old-school Americana, pay a visit to the Santa Monica Pier. Here, Monroe would wear a disguise to walk the beach, and the adjacent amusement park hasn’t changed much since the golden days of Hollywood.
