British singer Rita Ora and her husband, New Zealand filmmaker Taika Waititi, recently gave fans a glimpse into their idyllic holiday in New Zealand. The pop star shared a charming video on Instagram from their Boxing Day celebration, capturing the essence of their serene escape at West Auckland’s Bethells Beach.

In the Instagram reel, Ora is seen engaging in a light-hearted conversation with Waititi, inquiring about the name of the picturesque location. Waititi, known for his work as a Marvel director, responds with a casual, “Bethells Beach,” before they discuss their plans to indulge in some oysters. Ora’s excitement is palpable as she describes the beach’s unique black and magnetic sand, reveling in the natural beauty around her, despite the rain.

This isn’t the first glimpse the couple has shared of their New Zealand adventures. Just last week, Ora posted pictures of herself relishing the summer at Piwakawaka Point. This exclusive, luxury villa, nestled on a private peninsula on Lake Wānaka, offers a stunning retreat, showcasing New Zealand’s breathtaking landscapes.

The couple’s connection to New Zealand has been evident for some time. They were spotted in Wellington this past August, casually crossing Ghuznee Street before enjoying lunch at the Egmont Street Eatery. This outing coincided with Waititi’s work commitments in the country. In a June interview, he confirmed his plans to stay in New Zealand from August until the end of the year, focusing on two television shows, “Our Flag Means Death” and “Time Bandits.” Notably, “Our Flag Means Death,” a pirate comedy-adventure series, was renewed by HBO and had its production shifted from Los Angeles to New Zealand for its second season.

The couple’s relationship has been in the public eye since they started dating in March 2021, with their romance becoming official in August of the same year. They celebrated their intimate wedding this past August, marking their one-year anniversary. The union of Ora, a global pop sensation, and Waititi, a renowned filmmaker, has captivated fans around the world, with their shared adventures in New Zealand offering a delightful peek into their life together.
