About Cape Kidnappers

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers sits on 6,000 acres of pastureland overlooking the impossibly scenic Hawke’s Bay. Except for the beautiful natural surroundings, Cape Kidnappers is hardly a simple rural retreat. The accommodations match what guests would experience in an urban five-star hotel, while the adjacent golf course, world-class spa, and ever-present Pacific Ocean panoramas make the Farm at Cape Kidnappers something truly special. The ten Hilltop Suites, eight Ridge Suites and four Lodge Suites all offer 180-degree views of the ocean, the golf course and the ruggedly charming coastline. Each suite features a complimentary mini-bar, wi-fi, air conditioning, walk-in closets, dual-vanity bathrooms, oversized baths, and a complete entertainment system featuring LCD televisions and movie ...

Each suite features a complimentary mini-bar, wi-fi, air conditioning, walk-in closets, dual-vanity bathrooms, oversized baths, and a complete entertainment system featuring LCD televisions and movie and music players. The highlight for most guests will undoubtedly be the private balcony that fronts each suite. Larger groups (for example: families, wedding parties, reunions, or corporate retreats) have the option of renting out the four-suite Owner’s Cottage, which features four bedrooms and ample public space.  This luxury home-like collection of suites can accommodate up to eight people. In addition to dining spaces where gourmet meals are served, the main lodge boasts lounges, contemporary art and open fireplaces. Additional features include a wine cellar with a tasting room and a fully-equipped fitness center. The fairways of the par 71, 7,119-yard Cape Kidnappers Golf Course will beckon golf lovers, while everyone will enjoy a massage or beauty treatment at spa, which also features three private treatment rooms (including a couples room). Tours of the beautiful Hawke’s Bay area, on horseback, mountain bike or quad bike, are on offer for Cape Kidnappers guests. Picnic sites are scattered around the property, and there are also hiking trails that lead to stunning ocean views. What to do Enjoy a wine tasting session in the lodge’s wine cellar before returning to watch the sunset on your private balcony. Play a round of golf on the stunning Cape Kidnappers course or simply relax with an hour-long massage in your own private treatment room. Mingle with other guests during the evening meal and chat around the open fireplaces in the main lodge.
