Accessible only by ferry, the Bay of Many Coves Resort is a true romantic hideaway. Spectacular views of the Queen Charlotte Sound are complimented by the surrounding bush in New Zealand’s sunniest region.

Accommodation comes in the form of one, two and three bedroom apartments, all en suite, with kitchenette, living area and internet access. Relax after a day of adventure and activity (preferably with a glass of chilled Malborough Sauvignon Blanc), taking in the breathtaking view from the private balcony.

The resort boasts two restaurants and one café. The Foredeck Restaurant creates a refined and romantic atmosphere while the Kumatage Restaurant has a more relaxed vibe. The Bight Café sits on the shore, serving lighter food, coffee and fine Marlborough wines.

A heated outdoor pool, hot tub, day spa and library are all provided for guests' enjoyment and babysitting can be arranged. Marlborough Sounds has plenty on offer - guests can swim with dolphins, walk through the bush, hire a kayak or sailing boat and observe the cormorant colonies nearby. Trips can also be arranged to Motuara Island and to the principal Marlborough vineyards.
