Justin Bieber seen arriving in Queenstown by private jet
After entertaining thousands of adoring fans in Auckland, Justin Bieber headed to Queenstown on Sunday to recharge the batteries.
Bieber's private jet touched down in Queenstown Airport around 1pm on Sunday afternoon, and the pint-sized Canadian popstar emerged from the plane around half an hour later.
An eyewitness said the singer looked relaxed as he stopped and chatted to a group of girls who had been waiting for him since 9.30am.
Bieber was reportedly picked up from the airport and taken to The Hills, one of New Zealand's most exclusive resorts and golf courses, 20kms away in Arrowtown.
Lodge at The Hills costs $32,250 per night during the high season from August to June, with a minimum five night stay.
Guests are treated to champagne and canapes on arrival, a private chef, and can play their own private three par golf hole.
"Set in 500 acres of tranquil ambience, in a stunning glacial valley and surrounded by snow-capped mountains, a stay at The Lodge is guaranteed to be holiday of lasting special memories," its website says.
It was all a long way from Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, where Bieber performed before an estimated 50,000 fans on Saturday night.
Bieber's jet remained at the airport on Sunday afternoon.
The next leg of his Purpose World Tour is in Santiago, Chile, on March 23.
