My wife and I stayed here during a three-week tour of NZ for our honeymoon. We booked relatively late; four days before intended check-in. There were no one-bedroom chalets remaining, so staff provided us with a larger room for the one-bedroom price. This was indicative of the exceptional service we received during our two-night stay. Staff were professional, friendly and... More

Bay of Many Coves was our first stop in New Zealand and we couldn't have asked for a better place to get our feet on the ground. The surroundings are absolutely gorgeous and the environment of the resort is a perfect mix of luxury, peaceful hideaway and casual comfort. We only stayed for two nights, but wished we could have...

We could have stayed here for weeks. It is probably my favorite place I have ever stayed. There's no question it is expensive, but it was definitely worth the splurge. The location is spectacular, rooms have everything you could want: separate living room/dining/kitchen area, nice bedroom, outside deck with another dining table, and big bathroom, with amazing views from nearly...

Oh my how else can you describe a shed on a hill excuse the pun - this is just heavenly and without fault in respect of the chalets, food and service. We have never stayed anywhere where the staff are more attentive to your comfort, it seemed almost invisible beds made read cups washed silently. Pure heaven with stunning views,... More

Superb location in an isolated bay in the Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand, reached by water taxi from Picton township. Outstanding service, world-class meals and wines, tasteful accommodation. Very relaxing!

With very good friends visiting from Melbourne, we wanted to find a destination that would "blow their socks off". Where to start is the challenge writing this review.

The BOMC is located in the most tranquil setting and in in the most beautiful scenery. Access to the resort is by boat so one has the feeling of total peace and solitude. Everything is perfect and the BOMC is ideal for a relaxing break. The hosts Pip and Nick make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much... More

What a lovely review, with many thanks. Indeed tranquility and beauty are regularly uttered by guests. We love sharing 'our office' - this little peaceful part of New Zealand where many guests enjoy a break from the road; relaxing &/or exploring the Sounds. More

Bay of Many coves is absolutely superb. Top quality all around, and the units seem to hang out over the bay. The management team was very eager to help us at every turn and even equipped us with a last minute trail lunch for a walk on the Queen Charlotte Track. We would highly recommend this fantastic resort!
