From the moment I booked the staff efficiency was perfect in responses to all my queries, on arrival our welcome was genuine and the staff especially Amy take great pride in their role and the guests' every need. We hope to return one day especially to stay at the grand villa Rahimoana for a very special occasion!

Awesome stay in stunning location with fabulous views and very attentive staff. My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights for my 50th birthday in June...everything was organised before we arrived by Cieran. The accommodation, the scenic helicopter flight, the sailing trip, the private winery tour and the massages! Everything was better than we hoped for with a high...

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...

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...
