Marlborough Sounds Accommodation

The Tasman District is a local government district in the northwest of the South Island of New Zealand.

Bordering the Canterbury Region, West Coast Region, Marlborough Region, and Nelson City, the jaw-dropping beauty and vastly different landscapes between the regions make for some of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand to visit, both for the independent backpacker, and those after a luxury getaway.

Have a read of what we believe are the top accommodation options in each region, for every type of budget.

Budget Accommodation:

The Villa:

This cosy 115-year-old villa offers both bunk rooms and private dorms. With free bike hire, a spa pool, a treehouse, free apple crumble and ice cream for dessert, and a courtyard fire for mixing with fellow travellers, this is one great accommodation for those on a budget.

Middle-Range Accommodation:

Punga Cove:

Set amongst the stunning scenery of the Marlborough Sounds, Punga Cove has a range of accommodation options spread across the rolling hills of the Marlborough Region with incredible views of Endeavour Inlet.

Choose from the Frond Suites, Mamaku Apartments, Fern Studios, or Koru Chalets, and enjoy a smart casual dining experience at the Punga Cove Restaurant above the hill.

Luxury Accommodation:

Bay of Many Coves:

This luxury five-star resort is known as ‘The Jewel of the Marlborough Sounds’ - and once you see it, you can understand why.

Accessible only by boat or air and nestled between the bush and the sea, you can take your pick from a one, two, or three bedroom luxury apartment or Kereru Suite, and basque in nature’s glory.

Treat yourself at Miritu Day Spa and enjoy a fine dining experience at one of the three upmarket food-havens in the Bay of Many Coves.
