There are few places in the world where you get the sense of land emerging from the ocean — where you can trace the contours of the land down below the waterline — where land and ocean are not binary or separate, but continuous. New Zealand’s Paroa Bay is one of these places — a sheltered inlet enveloped by a perfectly irregular peninsula —with the larger subtropical and iconic Bay of Islands stretching out across the horizon.
Perched above this breath-taking bay is our premier luxury accommodation — Paroa Bay Winery and Estate. Our property features three superb villas, a sprawling boutique vineyard, and our world-class restaurant Sage — ensuring every aspect of a luxurious experience is not only catered to but plentifully provided for.
As the land traces below the high water mark it also traces up — and it is our goal with our Paroa Bay Winery to be part of the continuity of nature — to exist serenely and to complement the natural world, and by doing so, we provide our guests with an experience of complete relaxation and luxury in this unique and awe-inspiring setting.
Learn about the rich and complex viticulture techniques of Paroa Bay Winery or get out an explore the Bay of Islands by land, boat or air — we offer experiences and activities of every speed, for every age.
