Bay of Many Coves

Bay of Many Coves, Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand

Nestled into a quiet cove within the picturesque Marlborough Sounds, this is a unique property offering apartment-style accommodation in the heart of New Zealand's finest wine district and overlooking its glorious waters. Stylishly appointed rooms with contemporary kitchenettes let you enjoy meals on your private balcony, although there's also an all day café and à la carte restaurant on site. There are plenty of non-motorised water sports on offer as well as an all-weather fresh water swimming pool and hot tub, although you can swim safely from the beach too. For additional pampering there is a day spa facility. This is an exclusive retreat and a playground for sailing, fishing and kayaking in an unspoilt natural environment.
