"Recognised as one of the best couples Sanctuary's in New Zealand" Sanctuary Palms takes its name from the haven it provides, offering a stylish and tranquil retreat nested in a private setting, native bush and sub-tropical gardens. It is away from the tourist hustle & bustle, offering spectacular sea views over the Bay of Islands and only five minutes walk to the beach, cafes, restaurants and wharf where all the water attractions depart from. You are invited to restore your mind and relax in this luxurious tranquil setting. Accommodation Sanctuary Palms contains four beautiful Suites each with their own individual character: The Penthouse Suite - 200sq metres of "pure luxury" The Moulin Rouge Suite - 85sq metres of "sophistication and elegance" The Pacifika Suite - 70sq metres of "sophisticated nauturals with a twist of urban contemporary" The Waterfall Suite -60sq metres of "peace and tranquility" All Suites are individually themed and totally self-contained.
