Rooms at 970 Lonely Bay

Decorated in neutral tones and flooded with natural light, 970 Lonely Bay’s four suites are minimalist and elegant. Each suite comes with a spacious en suite bathroom, generously-sized minibars and private balconies with bush or water views of the Purangi Estuary and Cooks Beach.

Food and facilities

You’ll never cease to be amazed by Rosemary and Graeme, 970 Lonely Bay’s incredibly welcoming hosts. Freshly made croissants are favourites at the breakfast table every morning, and dinners, picnic hampers, afternoon teas and pre-dinner nibbles are available on request. Due to its small capacity, there’s a real homely feel at the 970 Lonely Bay. Spend time relaxing by the fireside in the library in winter, or out on the numerous decks when it’s warm.
