Bay of Many Coves

Perfect seclusion on the water’s edge deep in the Marlborough Sounds with 5-star luxury accommodation, world-class cuisine and a taste of 100% pure relaxation.

Savour the delights of fresh local seafood and other provincial produce in our waterfront café, guest-lounge and fine-dining restaurant. Hosting takes place around 5.30pm on the deck overlooking the bay, or perhaps by the fireplace in cooler months, where you can savour the local Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and enlightening discussion.  The accompanying canapés feature seafood from the Sounds or cheeses and other regional specialities. Our cellar offers a broad selection of Marlborough’s finest wines balanced with national and international labels. Executive Chef, Hannes Bareiter has a natural flare for creative gastronomy and a passion for techniques that maintain the integrity of pure ingredients. On offer is an exciting a la carte menu, international breakfast options, vegetarian menus and an exceptional Degustation Menu. You might be lucky to coincide with the trawler delivering your fresh fish! And the views: there are few places with such a luxurious, mouth-watering, sensory combination.
