Set atop 6,000 rolling acres of stunning pasture-land, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers features 24 guest rooms and a four bedroom Owner’s Cottage. 180 degree panoramic views of the farm, golf course, and Pacific Ocean are enjoyed from each suite’s private balcony.

The main lodge features many warm and welcoming common areas in which to relax, including lounge and dining spaces and 'outdoor rooms'. Roaring open fires, contemporary art and stylish interior design await your visit. In addition, a wine cellar with tasting room and a fully-equipped gymnasium are on-site. The 5-Star facility is part of the prestigious Relais & Chateaux Collection and is ranked as the #2 hotel in the South Pacific and #21 in the world.

Cape Kidnappers features eighteen holes of golf designed by world renowned golf architect Tom Doak. The course has stunning sea-views, playing high above the ocean atop dramatic cliffs. It is built on a ridge-and-valley landscape and has been hailed as one of the great modern marvels in golf. The course played host to the PGA TOUR’s Kiwi Challenge in 2008 and 2009, and has received numerous accolades and awards including a ranking among the Top 100 Golf Courses in the World.
