Bay of Many Coves is an elegant waterfront retreat, nestled within 52 hectares of native bush, on the shores of a hidden cove, deep in the Marlborough Sounds. The 11 contemporary bungalow apartments blend effortlessly with their surroundings, all with views across the aqua marine bay.
Facilities include a small heated outdoor pool plus a day spa as well as a wonderful restaurant serving fresh seasonal produce with award-winning wines from the region.
Why we like Bay of Many Coves

Take to the water by kayak or paddle board in search of dolphins or head to Motuara Island, a predator free bird sanctuary where it is possible to see penguins and kiwi as well as a wealth of other birdlife.
Walking trails around the property lead to hidden waterfalls and are lined with glow worms by night. For a longer trek Bay of Many Coves is well located to walk part or all of the Queen Charlotte Track.
Located in the heart of the Marlborough Sounds at the northern tip of the South Island, Bay of Many Coves is inaccessible by road yet easily reached. Take a 20-minute helicopter transfer from Wellington or a 30-minute speed boat from Picton.
