The Lodge at Cape Kidnappers is one of New Zealand’s most luxurious lodges and it is a farm stay like no other. Situated in Hawkes Bay, the property sits atop rolling hills and rugged cliffs with spectacular sea views and offers its guests some truly magical experiences and outdoor pursuits. Hike across the farmland, visit the largest and most accessible gannet colony in the world, take a delicious picnic to Black Reef, enjoy Kiwi Discovery Walks, clay-pigeon shooting, 4WD farm tours and 18 holes of golf on a course that was designed by legendary golf architect Tom Doak.
Choose from a Ridge, Lodge or Hilltop Suites all of which offer rustic, stylish and luxurious interiors. Some offer cosy fireplaces and private balconies from which to watch the sun rise. The Owners Cottage, which sits amidst 6,000 acres has 180 degree views and can accommodate up to 8 people in its 4 deluxe bedrooms. It is located a short distance from the main lodge and spa and comes with a chef for in-house dining, two sitting rooms, a gorgeous stone terrace and an outdoor Jacuzzi.
When you combine a 6,000-acre working cattle farm with incredible sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean, you will inevitably end up with an extraordinary property that offers world class accommodation, service and experiences. Facilities include an award-winning golf course, a luxurious spa facility, an extensive wine cellar and swimming pool.
