The Landing

Set on a thousand acres in the Bay of Islands, The Landing promises ocean views punctuated by pincushion hills and six private beaches. Through sustainable agriculture, including The Landing Vineyard, vegetable gardens, and sourcing of local seafood, The Landing works to carefully protect a natural balance with the land. For guests this means a brilliant culinary experience of the freshest ingredients prepared by private chefs. Stay in one of the tree residences—a unique collection of three luxury homes. The Boathouse mimics the design of a colonial woolshed and is ideal for a family of four or two couples. The indoor-outdoor design feels cozy in the winter with leather armchairs nestled around a working fireplace, and fresh in the summer with pine and canvas loungers on the covered terrace gazing out over the bay to views of the 144 surrounding islands. The Cooper Residence sleeps up to 12, so multigenerational groups will be right at home. While The Gabriel Residence merges traditional materials of fieldstone and sun-bleached wood with wide-open windows, spacious rooms with soaring ceilings, minimalist slate floors, and soft linen furnishings. The surrounding region is rich in wildlife and cultural experiences. Guests can hike through the bird sanctuaries and wetlands, explore Maori historical sites, dive for lobster, bike, kayak, paddle board, fish and golf. Personal instructors and therapists can be booked for spa treatments and yoga.
