Set on the ridge of a 75-acre estate with spectacular views over the Bay of Islands, Eagles Nest is said to be somewhere between seven stars and heaven.
This top notch, luxury hotel and retreat is designed and furnished in an eclectic, contemporary, international style resulting in a setting that is both striking, yet subtly melds into its surroundings. Be blown away by the views, the light, the windows, the pool—this is style in a very understated way.
Within easy walking distance of the historic village of Russell, the estate offers five award- winning luxury villas, four of which have their own private, heated, infinity-edge lap pool.
The Bay of Islands is a sub-tropical paradise of over 144 islands with stunning scenery and an abundance of wildlife including penguins, dolphins, marlin, whales, gannets and more. World class big game fishing, scenic cruising, sailing, diving, kayaking, bush walking, helicopter flight seeing or just enjoying a romantic picnic on a remote beach are some of the highlights of this “ must see” part of New Zealand.
Eagles Nest is famed for its fabulous resident chefs who transform locally grown products into world-class cuisine matched with wines from an extensive wine cellar.
Dining options at Eagles Nest include a private meal in your villa or on the balcony, a casual poolside barbecue or a formal 8 course degustation—the choice is yours. Canapes and luxury picnic hampers are also available on request.
Unlike many New Zealand hotels, Eagles Nest also offers the services of its own Personal Trainer and Spa Therapists to ensure the most luxurious of stays.
