The Farm at Cape Kidnappers

‘6,000 Acre Hilltop Farm Lodge With Stunning Ocean Views’

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers is a luxury lodge on a 6,000 acre hilltop sheep and cattle farm southeast of Napier. The property is surrounded by terrain akin to Montana but with the added spectacle of an 800 foot drop into the sea. The height of the farm enables 180 degree panoramic views over the Pacific Ocean and the Hawkes Bay wine region. Facilities include an award-winning par 71 golf course, indulgent spa treatments, a heated infinity pool with Jacuzzi, a fully-equipped gymnasium and a wine cellar with a tasting room. Choose from comfortable guest suites, rooms and cottages, some with private balconies and all with fantastic views. Dining is enjoyed at the lodge which offers everything from delicious breakfast buffets to 3-course lunches and dinners featuring the best New Zealand lamb and beef.
