My husband and I enjoyed a weekend at Cape Kidnappers with a group of friends and everyone left feeling that it had been something really special. From the moment we were greeted by staff at The Farm to the time we checked out, the service was fantastic - attentive and caring, but not overwhelming. Our suite was beautiful, comfortable and...

Sister Lodge of Kauri Cliffs overlooking beautiful coastline. Plenty of things to do in the area, we wish we would have stayed longer. Beats Kauri Cliffs on setting, service level, pool area. Staff less volatile. However still not up to friendliness and warmth of Huka Lodge. Food was average. No dark bread at breakfast, no cheese, cold cuts, etc on... More

From our personal greeting upon arrival, to the staff telling us "it seems you just arrived" after our three day stay, we felt welcome and at home. Set on a 6,000 acre sheep and cattle farm on the rugged coastline of the North Island, luxury awaited us at every turn. Our beautifully appointed room looked out over the breathtaking views... More

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers is located on a 6,000 acre working sheep and cattle farm. But make no mistake, the property itself is luxurious inside and out from the main lodge to the cottages. Beware of the addictive cookies they cook fresh daily and leave in your mini-bar! There are lots of adventures to be had including: one of... More

If you're researching this lodge you probably know it's based on a rolling 6,000-acre "farm." Pray for good weather (sadly, we had a bit of rain), because you'll want to drink in every view. The drive from the gate to the lodge is probably 15-minutes, but I never tired of it. The Lodge facilities are impressive, too. Unsurprisingly, the food... More

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers was the second lodge that we stayed at and is owned and operated by the Robertson's, thus our expectations were pretty high, and all were met during our three night stay.
