Wine hotels in Hawke's Bay

Hawke's Bay, named after the semi-circular bay on the east coast of North Island, is New Zealand’s second-largest wine-producing region. Centred on the cities of Hastings, Napier and Havelock North, the region is particularly known for its Bordeaux-blend wines. Stay in a wine hotel in Hawke's Bay and you’re close to some of the country’s oldest vineyards, stretched along its five major river valleys and originally planted by missionaries for sacramental wines.

Best wine hotels in Hawke's Bay for a sea view

  • If you’d like to be in rural surroundings but closer to the sea, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers might fit the bill. Perched on the Cape’s craggy peninsula, it enjoys far-reaching views over the Pacific Ocean, as well as inland. Bedrooms are contemporary classic - some with fireplaces - lounge areas are rustic-chic, and light streams in everywhere. Horse-riding, mountain-biking, golf and walking trails are available as well as a spa.
