Hotel Overview


A stone’s throw away from the water’s edge at Marlborough Sounds. There are no roads to the hotel, which is only accessible by water taxi from Wellington and Christchurch.

Rooms at Bay of Many Coves

Luxury hillside apartments look out onto plush vegetation and the Marlborough Sounds’ waters. Natural hues and tones decorate the rooms, which feature private balconies, separate living areas and bedrooms, and fully equipped kitchenettes.

Food and facilities

Thanks to its secluded position on the water’s edge, seafood is the specialty at the hotel’s two restaurants and waterfront cafe. The tuna with ponzu foam is particularly delicious, reflecting executive chef Hannes Bareiter’s talent for classic and contemporary cuisine. There’s also a heated outdoor swimming pool, a six person cedar hot tub, spa, and beach swimming facilities.

Activities at Bay of Many Coves

Dinghies and sea kayaks are available at your disposal; why not take one and explore the dolphin-populated waters? Nature-lovers will enjoy the many bird watching and bush walking opportunities, while those in need of some relaxation can kick back on the beach.
