Over Bay of Many Coves Resort
Dit resort betekent letterlijk 'Baai van de vele inhammen' en is tegen een heuvel aan gebouwd. De sfeervol ingerichte appartementen beschikken over een kitchenette en het balkon biedt een schitterend panorama over de inhammen die hier samen komen. U kunt een spa-behandeling ondergaan, een krantje lezen onder het genot van een kopje koffie in het Kumatage café of gewoon op uw balkon van het uitzicht genieten. Bay of Many Coves vormt een perfecte uitvalsbasis voor activiteiten in de omgeving, zoals een bezoek aan een wijngaard, zeilen, vissen, duiken of kajakken. Aan het einde van de dag kunt u in het Foredeck Restaurant dineren bij zonsondergang of in het Bight Café een lichte maaltijd nuttigen.

"R&R amidst and active NZ trip"
My husband and I stayed here during the middle of our self driven trip thorough New Zealand. This was the end of our South Island leg. We ferried over from Picton. We were met at the ferry by the staff to take our luggage and orientate us on the grounds as well as escort us to our rooms. The bungalow had amazing views of the cove with a table on the deck and in the kitchen. They supplied us with a nice bowl of fruit and everything you need to make good tea and coffee. We were lucky enough to have some dolphins put on a show out in the cove jumping and flipping while we ate dinner the first evening. That was really cool! The next day during lunch we fed the school of fish off the deck of the restaurant. If you are somewhat fit and have the right shoes, the trek to the top of the path is worth taking for the amazing views of Picton, the bay and coves. PROS -staff -- friendly, kind and very willing to help - nothing is a bother -beautiful views -great gardener -seclusion -guest laundry -DVD available for rainy lazy days -large bathroom -good kitchenette -excellent place for hikers, kayaking and fishing CONS -furniture (think IKEA type) - looks nice enough, but light weight and not that comfortable - probably because the location is remote and I'm sure it's difficult to get real heavier furniture transported to the resort as well as into the rooms up the hill -I have a bad back and did not find the bed very comfortable -seclusion - it can be a pro and/or a con! -single sink in bathroom not double vanity nor any counter space -shower only, no tub -restricted to just their restaurant due to the secluded location -no TV in bedroom for lazy TV watchers ;-)
"A Gem of a Place to Relax"
We had a two night stay here which we deliberately booked for a well deserved break half way through our tour of NZ. The journey to BOMC via the water taxi itself was a treat, with sightings of penguins, birds of prey and seals. We were greeted at the jetty by Natalie, Elaine and Murray - all were welcoming and keen to make sure we knew they were there to help should we need it. Elaine and Natalie showed us round whilst Murray took our luggage to our bungalow. The views from any building on the resort are stunning - it was made even more special for us because we dropped lucky with the weather - clear blue skies and warm sunshine. We made use of the pool and cedar hot tub - fantastic for relaxing in after a busy few weeks. Did the circular (but tough going in the mid-day sun!) walk to the top of the mountain, where we saw Picton in the distance and the top of Queen Charlotte track - absolutely stunning and well worth it if you are able-bodied with appropriate footwear. The resident cormorants were interesting to watch and we saw a seal in the bay too. We tried the informal menu for dinner on the 1st night & were pleased with our choices. 2nd night we did the fine dining which was delicious. We saw some of the comments on prices at BOMC & in our opinion the prices are about the same when compared to similar places we've been to in NZ. In fact the informal menu prices were cheaper than a mediocre restaurant in Rydges hotel, Wellington. We expected things to be more expensive due to the isolated location & were pleased with the overall cost. Also there are not many places with free of charge laundry facilities on site, which we also made use of. All in all we had a lovely relaxing time here and would like to come back should we be in this area again. Thank you to Elaine, Murray, Natalie and a big thanks to Clare the waitress for being so friendly and helpful (and for taking photos of us).
We stayed at this hotel based on previous trip advisor reviews during our trip to New Zealand early November. The hotel is very quaint and unique. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The owners/property managers were very gracious and helpful. They assisted us in booking scuba diving during our stay. They also allowed us a late check out in order to take the late ferry back to Picton and enjoy most of our last day on the resort. The food is amazing. One note of caution, which we did not realize prior to planning our stay, was that the price of the ferry from Piction to the resort is quite expensive per person ($50 NZ per person each way). If we would have known this ahead of time we would have planned our trip a bit differently.
"A wonderful place to stay"
Booked in for three nights at The Bay of Many Coves Resort as a 'take it easy' stay during our tour of New Zealand. We had already concluded that the accommodation, food and service was all top-class, and also that the owners Murray and Elaine together with their staff were the loveliest bunch of people who would always go the extra mile for their guests, when on our third night the earthquake came just after midnight. The way all the guests were looked after and helped when we were all unsettled and stuck there for an extra day was absolutely exemplary. From the big hug given me by Sarah, the housekeeper, who knew I was pretty scared, to Murray who spent most of the night and next day on the phone making sure we were safe and helping everyone to change their plans, the staff were just lovely - generous to a fault with their kindness and care. In fact the suites are sturdily built from wood, moved with the tremors, and nothing was damaged and, please note that this was the first earthquake for a good number of years and was in fact centred some considerable distance south at Kaikoura - it is not a regular feature! The place itself is beautiful, the chalet style suites are comfortable, spacious and cosy with amazing views, Ingrid gives excellent massages in the spa, and the food is delicious but also healthy. There are plenty of books to read, beautiful gardens, a laundry, trekking poles should you wish to walk the paths up the hill behind the suites, and a heated outside swimming pool. There are also regular water taxis should you wish to venture further afield. Highly recommended.
"The Garden of Eden couldn't have been better"
By the time my husband and I were deposited by the water taxi at Bay of many coves, we were exhausted from a wonderful 10 day holiday with friends. My hope was to find a place to rest from the breakneck speed of our tour of both islands. We couldn't have been more pleased. When we arrived, Murray greeted us at the boat. He showed us our bungalow. The pictures do not do it justice. The linens on the bed were sumptuous with each couch and bed equipped with the most beautifully woven fluffy wool blankets. The fridge came with fresh milk and chocolate for hot chocolate. And the kitchen had everything you could need for light eating. My favorite thing above all, was that the windows and doors disappeared, so one could lounge in your bed or in the living room and feel like you outside. On one early morning, it was raining, and we watched the birds and the day come alive, feeling we were in a tree house. You could see the magnificent view from everywhere in your room. The only ammenity I missed was a bath tub. However, they had a hot tub at the pool for soaking. It took us a full day and night to recuperate, so we took advantage of room service (which seemed like they were waiting outside our room because the service was immediate). The first morning we took our breakfast in the room. Fresh foods and great coffee and teas. Another nice touch was the fresh fruit in the room, especially the kiwis. I am a light sleeper, so the absolute quiet and lack of other people's noise was wonderful. We could hear the water, the birds and an occasional water taxi, but only once a day. There were plenty of places to hike to get the full effect of being secluded. The hike to the lookout was certainly worth it. They had walking poles to assist those of us who are flat landers. And a library of sorts, so you never run out of interesting things to read. (I noted a DVD library as well.). And access to a washer and dryer. And the onsight Resturant was a five star experience and taste. I hated to leave Murray and Elaine and their charming staff. My hope and prayer is that we have another opportunity to visit again and again and again. What a gem to find in the Marlborough Sounds.
