The Copthorne Hotel and Resort, Bay of Islands enjoys a superb waterfront location set in 60 acres of subtropical gardens, next to the Waitangi Treaty Grounds and just a short distance from the village of Paihia.
The light and airy hotel rooms all have either a balcony or a patio, to make the most of the harbour, bay or garden views and the sound of the native birdsong all around. The hotel has a beautiful, lagoon-style swimming pool and cascading rock pools, and the more energetic can enjoy a game of tennis on the outside hard court.
Jimmy Cook’s Kiwi Kitchen is the Copthorne Hotel and Resort’s on-site restaurant. Open each day for breakfast and dinner, the restaurant serves up Kiwi and international favourites made with the freshest local produce. Jimmy Cook’s Bar has an alfresco seating area, which is the perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee, a light lunch with a cold beer or a late-night sundowner at the end of a busy day in the Bay of Islands.
