A SUPERB RANGE OF EXPERIENCES FOR NATURE LOVERS
Hawke’s Bay is a true gourmet destination, with award-winning wineries, fine reds and a growing reputation for superior foodstuffs.
An abundance of refined pleasures
As New Zealand’s oldest wine region, Hawke’s Bay is also recognised as one of the country’s most diverse experiences. In addition to discovering over 40 cellar doors, highlights include golfing at Cape Kidnappers, exploring the art deco architectural heritage of nearby Napier or fishing for trout in crystalline streams.
Mangapapa Petit Hotel sits amid this abundance, surrounded by vineyards, orchards and gardens. A recent transformation of this gracious 1855 homestead has resulted in a boutique hotel offering a confluence of fine accommodation together with an exceptional dining experience.
Seating just 12 guests, the elegant Miyano restaurant is the passion of Executive Chef Kazutomo Miyano, who creates a daily changing menu of French-inspired cuisine. Only the freshest produce is harnessed for his five and six-course degustation menus, married with an impressive wine list showcasing the region’s finest labels.
Guests may choose from the exquisite Mangapapa Suite, Executive Suites or Lodge Rooms. Each guest room has been individually decorated and exemplifies elegant sophistication, enhanced by modern touches including LCD TV and broadband Internet. A gloriously sun-filled conservatory together with pool, spa and sauna provide opportunities for relaxation. When it comes time to explore, an experienced Wine Guide will take you on a personal discovery of the region’s best vineyards. Guided trout fishing and hot air ballooning are also possibilities.
