At the top of New Zealand’s South Island this luxury lodge boasts an idyllic position within the world-renowned Queen Charlotte Sound.
Beginning as a family retreat, Bay of Many Coves has evolved over the years to become one of the world’s leading luxury lodges of international acclaim. The serene beauty and wonder of Marlborough Sound – made up of four distinct sounds including Queen Charlotte Sound – is one of New Zealand’s ultimate highlights. Set on 100 hectares of pristine landscape in a peaceful cove, guests can discover sheltered inlets, sandy bays, beautiful forests and the crystal-clear waters of the sound. The region is also home to diverse marine and birdlife during certain times of the year. Species that can be seen include Bottlenose dolphins, Dusky dolphins, New Zealand Fur Seals, Humpback whales, while there are also three Cormorant breeding colonies nearby.
A member of the exclusive Luxury Lodges of New Zealand collection, Bay of Many Coves offers a variety of accommodation options for all guests including one, two and three-bedroom apartments that overlook the tranquil cove.
