The Lodge at Cape Kidnappers, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand

Accommodation Type: Lodge
Number of rooms: 24

Read about Kays weekend at Cape Kidnappers. The Farm at Cape Kidnappers opened in November 2007. Located on the North Island in Hawke’s Bay. One of New Zealand’s most important wine districts, Cape Kidnappers has a rich history beginning with its discovery by Captain James Cook in 1769. The new lodge, or ‘The Farm’ as it is called, promises to be a five star experience like its sister lodge's Kauri cliffs and Matakauri. Cape Kidnappers is set on a 6,000-acre sheep and cattle farm, which encompasses land reminiscent of Montana but plunges 800 feet straight into the sea. Find out more about Cape Kidnappers here.

The Farm affords spectacular 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean. The cluster of luxury lodge buildings suggest a working farm with the buildings combining rustic and textured materials with comfortable modern furniture. Offering 22 guest suites, and a four bedroom Owner's Cottage just a 60 minute flight from Auckland. Every suite offers its own private balcony and affords spectacular views of the property, golf course and Pacific Ocean. The main lodge features lounge and dining spaces, outdoor rooms, roaring open fire places, a wine cellar complete with tasting room plus a fully-equipped gymnasium.

Facilities: Each cottage suite has room controlled air conditioning, high speed wireless internet, remote control flatscreen LCD TV, DVD, CD player with iPod connection, safe, fully stocked complimentary mini bar*, walk in closet, spacious bathroom with heated towel rack, separate WC and shower stalls, oversized bath tub, and twin vanities. 180 degree panoramic views of the farm, golf course and Pacific Ocean are enjoyed from each suite’s private balcony. Interior design is by Linda Bedell of Aspen, Colorado.
