Northland

Hotels in Northland

All but unknown in America, Eagles Nest is famous in New Zealand for its setting (directly on the water in the placidly beautiful Bay of Islands), the scale of its five freestanding villas (the smallest is 1,107 square feet), and its aesthetic pro?le (brusquely modern and acres of glass).

The luxe vineyard homestead has huge guest rooms. You can sip local wines on a jetty in your own private bay.

Set on 6,000 acres of lush, rolling North Island countryside and bushland beside the Pacific, the 22-suite Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is one of three luxe lodges owned by the New York-based Robertson family (the others being the Farm at Cape Kidnappers and Matakauri Lodge).
