Far out to the east of Hawke’s Bay wine country, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers sits atop rolling farmland and rugged cliffs that give way to vast sea views. Home to not only a lodge and spa, this unique property also boasts the awarded-winning Tom Doak-design golf course, a sanctuary for some of New Zealand’s most precious flora and fauna, and a working sheep and cattle station.
Warm and enveloping, Cape Kidnappers’ generous suites offer sumptuous, rustic-luxe interiors and awe-inspiring views in equal parts.
Each of the spacious Hilltop, Hilltop Family, Ridge and Lodge Suites provide guests with some different, while delivering on peace, comfort and pure relaxation. With stunning attention to detail from designer Linda Bedell, you’ll be completely at ease from the moment you walk into the thoughtfully designed suites with large bathrooms and stunning balconies

All suites are within easy access to lodge facilities including gymnasium, pool, spa and library. Perfect for those seeking luxury accommodation in Hawke’s Bay.
Farm by name and nature, Cape Kidnappers harvests much of its own produce from its onsite vegetable garden.
Close to the lodge and abundant in every season, the garden enables Head Chef James Honore to create daily menus based on what is freshest.
What can’t be sourced from the farm’s vegetable garden is sourced from elsewhere in the Hawke’s Bay, which is known for its bountiful fruit, vegetables and boutique delicatessen products.
Honore says he and his brigade of chefs pride themselves on using freshest, seasonal cuisine available to them.
“Our kitchen is constantly evolving with new dishes and experiences for our guests, which is exciting. It is important not to combine too many flavours or to confuse the palate. I enjoy sourcing ingredients from the very best suppliers in Hawkes Bay, along with our daily picked fruit and vegetables from our own garden.”
Cape Kidnappers offers exquisite dining dining options including in the Snug, Library, Small Dining Room, Main Dining Room and Loggia, with private dining arranged upon request.
Gentlemen are asked to wear jackets to dinner. We have jackets available for guests to use during their stay which can be placed in rooms before arrival.
