Napier & Hawkes Bay holidays - Lush, sophisticated and leisurely

A beautiful destination where days are spent sipping divine wines, dining on sumptuous small plates, and hiking or kayaking near the mountains. The Hawkes Bay region of New Zealand is renowned for producing fruitful wines, but it’s so much more than simply another collection of sun-kissed vineyards. A visit to Napier, on the other hand, is like stepping back in time to the art deco era - a truly charming destination.

Enjoy some of New Zealand's most decadent wines

Made up of rural farmlands, mountain ranges and, of course, the gorgeous beaches that are so prominent on this island, it’s something quite special – a place of eclectic experiences.

Napier is a unique city that’s houses some of the best art deco buildings in the area which creates an interesting 1930s-style streetscape – in fact, it has the largest concentration of inner-city art deco buildings in the world. A charismatic place, it’s one of the highlights of Hawkes Bay.

Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the region with a bike ride through the scenic landscape, take a wine tour or visit Te Mata peak for astonishing views.

Why visit Napier and Hawke’s Bay?

  • Check out some of the artisan suppliers of gourmet cuisine if you’re a food lover – you won’t be disappointed.
  • Some of the best beaches can be found here, and they stretch all the way from the Mahia Peninsula in the north to the southern region of Porangahau.
  • Spring is a particularly great season to visit in, when the orchards are in blossom and the daffodils are in bloom.
  • Napier has the largest concentration of inner-city art deco buildings in the world, so it’s a must if you’re a fan of beautiful architecture.
