Overall a fabulous experience with great accommodation, wonderful attentive service and our chef, Stefan was excellent with the quality of the food being outstanding and we're very particular! We wanted a place to celebrate a big occasion and this didn't let us down. The whole experience was worth the trip to get there and our small group all thoroughly enjoyed... More

For my husband's 40th we gathered together with friends and spent a long weekend at Eagle's Nest. The service we received right from the beginning was great. On arriving my husband was speechless when we were told we had been upgraded. This is something we will never ever forget. Thanks for the memories. The pool was a highlight. To top... More

This was a 40th wedding anniversary treat. We stayed in the 1 bed First Light lodge - a gorgeous glass house to maximise the incredible views. We had a well-equipped kitchen with well-stocked larder & fridge and took advantage of the private chef service one evening. We had a delicious meal designed specially for us and cooked in front of... More

Perfect from start to finish. Couldn't fault it. Great service, friendly, efficient. Amazing views and villas. Best thing you can do for yourself. Spa could have been hotter but still nice to warm up in after a dip in the pool! Beautifully warm rooms to have in Winter too!

We needed a special place north of Auckland to spend 3 nights on our round-the-world 40th anniversary celebration, and Eagles Nest could not have been more perfect. The setting is idyllic and the accommodations are nothing short of world class. The team helped us plan a perfect stay in the Bay of Islands, including a memorable helicopter tour. Any request...

Let's start with the good points: the views from the villas are fabulous. You're not right by the water but the views of the bays and islands are fabulous. The other great point was the 18 metre infinity pool - really gorgeous and still pleasantly warm in mid winter. The outdoor jacuzzi was wonderful too. Landscaping was very well done.... More

We spent 4 nights in First Light Temple and thought it was simply spectacular. Decor is modern but oh-so-comfortable and welcoming...and really quite romantic. Floor plan is open with spectacular views in 3 directions. The villa itself is spacious but its glass walls and folding glass doors that open onto the wrap-around porch make it feel even larger! Despite the... More
