Set atop 6,000 rolling acres of stunning pasture-land in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers is the perfect setting for honeymoons, romantic getaways or family holidays. 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.



The farm offers 22 guest suites, and a four bedroom Owner’s Cottage just a 60 minutes 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.

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers has a range of facilities to accommodate all of your vacation requirements. As a guest you will enjoy a range of leisure facilities including heated infinity pool and jacuzzi, Spa treatments with beautiful forest and ocean views, golf course and club house, fully equipped gym, offering yoga, pilates, golf specific fitness and personal training by appointment.

The culinary team always aims to source produce as locally as possible, and with an idyllic Hawke’s Bay location, their “food miles” have been relatively few. With the Cape Kidnappers’ vegetable garden in place and its close proximity to the lodge, the chefs are able to create daily menus based on what is freshest, utilising many vegetables straight from the garden and offering the most seasonal produce to the guests.
