Te Mahia Bay Resort in the Marlborough Sounds

Te Mahia Bay Resort is found in one of the most beautiful bays in the Marlborough Sounds, at the top end of the South Island, New Zealand.

The turquoise waters of Kenepuru Sound wash the resort’s private pebbly beach and the surrounding bush is full of native birdsong.

We, your hosts, Jann and Trevor Hook, welcome you on arrival. Our personal touches are evident all around the resort making it a unique and special holiday environment.

All accommodation is self-contained and you have a choice of luxurious sea view apartments, spacious waterfront motel units or 2 and 3 bedroom combinations in the gracious heritage building.

Near to both Picton and Havelock, you can drive right to the door or arrive by water taxi or floatplane. Airports in Blenheim and Nelson are within 2 hours of the resort.

Take a walk on the Queen Charlotte Track, head down to Mistletoe Bay or head off for Lochmara for a longer walk or lunch. Go fishing or take a boat ride on Kenepuru Sound.

Self cater or enjoy our gourmet meals or stone grilled pizzas. Take time out at The Portage Resort Hotel or Raetihi Lodge for lunch or dinner. Both just 15 minutes away, or stay where you are and enjoy our Dining with a Difference option @ Te Mahia. Te Mahia offers a personal chef service to ensure your entertaining experience is as unique as it is effortless.

“I can’t say enough good things about Te Mahia resort. An incredibly beautiful location, great hosts and lovely (good value) accomodation. Lots to do as well – including kayaking in the bay and walking some of the Queen Charlotte Track. Loved the place.”
