This has to be one of the best luxury treasures in New Zealand. The rooms and location are gorgeous.

The dining is intimate as the...

Thank you for taking the time to share your views of your recent stay with us at the Bay. Especially for the Chefs, they are grateful that the Degustation dinner was memorable, they put a lot of passion into the plate and it seems that this was evident to you. Yes, drinking in the atmosphere is a brilliant way to...

The team appreciate your comments on the service and the Chefs are thrilled that you enjoyed the cuisine at Breakfast and Dinner. Along with the stunning vistas, there is plenty to do for those who are active, and for those that are not so inclined, the pool and hot tub beckon, a pampering treatment in the Day Spa or other...

If you are looking for a luxury hotel on the water, in the middle of Nature this is it! Each bungalow is positioned on the hillside to have a private view of the bay. We loved sitting on the large balcony drinking coffee in the morning and watching the birds fly over the bay. Also the landscaping is stunning, they...

Thank you for taking the time to write about our special little place, we concur that it is a little slice of paradise tucked in amongst pure NZ nature, on the waterfront with no roads! The individual balconies all with seaviews make for a perfect retreat to chill out and watch the world go by, be it a boat or...

This is a fantastic spot to just sit and contemplate the view, the world if you like. Also must be good for more serious outdoor types who like hiking, fishing etc. BUT advertising three different restaurants is a bit over the top. One is simply underneath the other, the third 20 metres away and all seem to be served by...

We are glad that you enjoyed our environment and the special place that the Bay of Many Coves is, and we are very disappointed that the food did not live up to your expectations. We do have a Waterfront Cafe, A Guest Lounge and a Main restaurant, operating 2 kitchens, and we sincerely apologise if any advertising showed otherwise. The...

We were two couples traveling together, shared a 2 Bedroom/2 Bath unit. It exceeded our expectations - roomy accommodations, fantastic view, warm hospitality from the managers Pip and Nick and even an adorable dog who likes to go on hikes with guests! Stylish and serene, it is the perfect place to explore the outdoors, take a swim or just sit...

We really appreciate the feedback regarding your stay at the Bay of Many Coves last year. The views, cafe and apartment itself were a great experience for you. The kitchenettes are handy and we can order in supplies if guests don't bring their own - and the evening restaurant is another top option. We do supply tea, coffee, milk, fruits...
