New Delhi: Newly-wed Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his wife Sakshi were invited by the Tourism Board of Queenstown to honeymoon in New Zealand`s adventure capital.
"We are thrilled to invite Mr and Mrs Dhoni to Queenstown to spend their honeymoon with us. I`m sure this will be the perfect romantic getaway for them," Chief Executive of Destination Queenstown Tony Everitt said in a statement.
Destination Queenstown decided to invite Dhoni following his remarks, during the Indian cricket team`s tour of New Zealand last year, that the country is perfect for a honeymoon.
"New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places, where people are friendly and very warm. It`s definitely a place you want to visit once in a lifetime, if not for cricket, then may be a honeymoon. Whatever it is, take some time off and come to New Zealand," Dhoni had said.
Taking a cue from this, Destination Queenstown extended this open invitation to Dhoni and Sakshi to visit them.
"M S Dhoni and Sakshi will find that a luxury lodge stay is the ultimate luxury statement in New Zealand. Luxury lodge stays are about experiencing the finest accommodation in the most comfortable, exclusive private surroundings and choosing from a wide range of activities like golf, fishing, sampling exotic wine and lip-smacking cuisines or plain soul searching o snow-capped peaks, jewel-like lakes and lush green forests," Everitt said.
Dhoni married childhood friend Sakshi on July 4 in a private ceremony at a farmhouse, about 25 km from Dehradun, attended only by family members and close friends, including a few of his team-mates.
