The Sanctuary At Bay of Islands

‘A Real Home From Home At This Sanctuary’

The Sanctuary @ Bay Of Islands is a two level lodge that sits above one of the areas milled coastal rainforest. The design of the lodge is heavily inspired by traditional décor and architecture, evident in the extensive use of timber and a willingness to adapt to the epicurean surroundings of the sloping hillside. The resort houses elegantly designed guest rooms which feature a host of amenities – including an infinity plunge pool and complimentary internet access, which is also resort wide. Dinners are optional at the resort but are served in 3 courses.
