If you’re into wine, a New Zealand vineyard trip is a must. There are nine different wine regions to choose from, with Hawke’s Bay, Martinborough and Gisborne being three of the most popular. On the North Island, Wellington and Martinborough allow you to discover the best of both worlds. New Zealand’s capital boasts a brilliant dining scene, while Martinborough is all about wine. A popular stop on the Classic New Zealand Wine Trail, this town is home to more than 20 vineyards, and produces chardonnay, pinot gris and pinot noir. Why not tour of one of the family-run wineries to learn about the vine-to-wine process?

On the South Island, you’ll find the world-famous Marlborough region. It produces three-quarters of the nation’s wine, namely its hugely popular sauvignon blanc. And, with over 30 cellar doors offering tastings and tours, you'll have plenty of opportunity to try some! Don't miss the Food & Wine Festival in February, either. One of the best ways to travel around New Zealand is by motorhome. So, to help you out, Maui have created create a Winery Havens network. Exclusively for Maui customers, these havens allow you to stay overnight in some of New Zealand’s most exclusive wineries – and, of course, you can try some delicious local food and wine.

Earlier this year, the first ever Dubai Michelin Guide was revealed, with 11 restaurants in Dubai awarded Michelin stars. So we’ve picked out a few, to whet your appetite. World-famous hotel Atlantis, The Palm has two in-house restaurants which hold a Michelin star – the beautiful Hakkasan Dubai, and the underwater Ossiano. Haskkasan has almost a dozen restaurants around the world but, at this one in particular, you can look forward to reimagined Cantonese dishes, served alongside some exclusive Dubai additions. Ossiano, meanwhile, is in a stunning setting. As you dine on fantastic French cuisine, you’ll be surrounded by the swirling marine life of the hotel’s aquarium.

Elsewhere, at One&Only The Palm, you can enjoy classic French dining at the highest level, at STAY by Yannick Alléno. Awarded two Michelin stars, this place takes a less-is-more approach to its elegant dishes. And the sophisticated menu changes with the seasons, which gives you the chance to try dishes like scallops quenelle, king crab, and truffle frangipane tart.
