If you are after a few days of pure secluded indulgence ,Cape Kidnappers is for you. Well appointed rooms ,wonderful ambience,excellent cuisine and views to die for! I wished i had stayed longer. It has a world class Golf course and walks that will both challenge and delight you. The Spa is also well worth a visit.
