An extraordinary retreat with spectacular views of the Bay of Islands

Unique Qualities

  • Chic Bay of Islands retreat with spectacular views from the ridgeway
  • Choice of exclusive multi-room villas with sliding glass walls, private infinity pools, outdoor fires and gourmet kitchens
  • Romantic picnics on the hotel’s private island

The hotel in detail

Located in the world’s ultimate maritime playground, Eagles Nest is set on a 75-acre estate and has just five private villas located on a high ridge of a peninsula overlooking the sea. Every villa benefits from a home theatre system, a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, and four of the villas have their own private lap pool. Your own personal chef, spa therapist, personal trainer and butler are available so you are free to make the most of this stunning destination.

The ultimate in exclusivity, the villas at Eagles Nest offer from one to four bedrooms, each with a large viewing deck to take in this glorious sub-tropical paradise. Totally contemporary in style, each villa provides complete privacy and seclusion with elegant, eclectic interiors and glass walls providing the most inspirational views. It is just like having your own personal holiday home on your own private island, yet is within easy access of Russell village.

Take a scenic flight, from Eagles Nest, by helicopter over the Bay of Islands and visit Cape Reinga, 90-mile beach and the Waipoa Forest. Hire a boat and go big game fishing for marlin, tuna, yellowtail kingfish, and snapper. Or, set sail and cruise the numerous scenic islands, go scuba diving and stop in a pretty cove for a gourmet picnic lunch, prepared by your private chef. Visit the Sunday Farmer’s Market in Kerikeri or discover the fascinating history of nearby Russell.
