The Farm at Cape Kidnappers.

Hotel and restaurant on a golf course. New Zealand,Hawkes Bay

Unique in the world: The moving experience of getting up close and personal with the endangered kiwi bird.

Jay Robertson, Maître de Maison, presents the property:

This lodge is a golfer’s paradise but it also has a whole lot more to offer. The golf course meandering along the top of the green cliffs is just one of the many reasons to stay here. Nestled in a great wine region, it is an ideal base from which to discover the surrounding estates and find out more about the country’s wines. Some visitors may have the moving experience of getting up close and personal with the endangered Kiwi bird. Rafting and fishing in the rushing torrents, galloping along the immense beaches on horseback, relaxing in the spa, and embarking on helicopter and hot air balloon rides are just some of the many pleasurable ways to spend the days here.
