Farm at Cape Kidnappers

448 Clifton Rd.
Te Awanga , New Zealand http://www.capekidnappers.com
64 6 875-1900

Located on a working sheep and cattle farm in the North Island’s Hawke Bay, one of the country’s top wine regions, this 26–room lodge uses natural fabrics, woods, and metals in sophisticated ways: halls are adorned with black tin animal sculptures, chairs are upholstered with shearling, and burlap curtains hang from large metal grommets. With attentive (sometimes too attentive) service, excellent local wines, and a full range of amenities (the cliff-hugging championship golf course is spectacular), the Farm navigates the fine line between formality and accessibility.
