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. 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.
