Bay of Many Coves, Marlborough Sounds

With so many coves to choose from, why did the resort pick this one? The first morning you open the curtains and reveal the view, you’ll know.

Tranquillity. Serenity. A flat, azure sea mirroring a flawless sky. Tiny white and blue boats bobbing merrily up to the piers that stretch seawards from the quaint marina. A beautiful cove flanked on three sides by densely wooded hills. This is the picture of perfect peace you’ll be enjoying if you decide to visit Bay of Many Coves Resort as part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to New Zealand.

You can arrive by helicopter, experience complete indulgence in a heavenly pampering spa, and dine on some of the finest food the region has to offer. And, when you’re feeling more active, there are safe beaches for swimming – and a heated pool, of course – dinghies and kayaks for venturing out into the bay.
