We stayed here while we walked the Queen Charlotte Track. Coming in each evening to Murray and Elaine's fabulous welcome, truly amazing meals and comfortable beds made this 'bucket-list' activity very special indeed for us. Definitely worth stretching the budget to enjoy this unforgettable experience.

The BoMC Resort really is a luxurious retreat deep in Queen Charlotte Sound, just right to stop, enjoy the beauty and splendour, the peace and quiet, and the exceptionally warm and personal welcome and service. It is miles from anywhere, accessible only by boat, and quite compact, but has everything you could want - gorgeous, spacious and comfortable luxury lodges,...

After a few days of cycling round the wineries of Marlborough, we drove the short journey to Picton whereupon we boarded a boat to Bay of Many Coves. The resort is accessible only by boat or helicopter so we knew we were going to be in for a quiet and secluded few days which was just what we wanted. And...

After two weeks in the North Island we spent three very happy and relaxing days at BOMC. From the very personal welcome, through to our departure date we were subject to wonderful service, great food and a beautiful place to relax in great comfort. All the staff were brilliant, Murray and Elaine should be proud of them all. Water taxi...

A fantastic location with water taxi access only, providing a secluded location for a very quiet peaceful break. Walks through the woods are challenging and get the heart racing but stimulating and most enjoyable. The food is gourmet standard and we looked forward to the meal every night, thoroughly enjoyable. Quite expensive, due to its isolated position and quality food...

My wife and I spent 2 fabulous days at The Bay of Many Coves. Wonderfully hosted by Elaine and Murray, we arrived by charter from Picton and were given a tour of the resort before relaxing back to a stunning dinner prepared by Chef Francesco. The weather was beautiful for the 2 days we were there and the grounds immaculate....

We spent four unexpectedly soggy days here in January thanks to unseasonably wet weather. But that didn't dampen our enjoyment of our time at the hotel. As so many other guests have said, the welcome from Elaine and Murray and the time and trouble they, and all the staff, took to make sure our stay was as enjoyable and relaxing...

I would describe my stay at Bay of Many Coves as one of those very special experiences in life. The individual apartments nestled in the New Zealand rain forest looking out on the spectacular views over Queen Charlotte sound, waking to the calls of tuis and kereru wood pigeons and the care and attention taken over each and every meal...

The only way here is by water taxi as no roads to the resort. Great 45 minute transfer at high speed and a very warm welcome. Beautiful area and small resort. Room was excellent, spacious and had everything including a great view. Free and acceptable speed wifi. Staff were really good and we especially enjoyed the wine tasting from Villa...

We spent 3 nights here, and were looking forward to it immensely. We weren't disappointed. The welcome from Murray and Elaine was warm and friendly. The location, overlooking the sound, was superb, and the accommodation was delightful, with a lovely large balcony giving us terrific views. They have a great spa, and fine dining to look forward to each evening....
