This winter, we would like to welcome you to our Cloudy Bay home for a 'one of a kind' experience.

We are offering you the opportunity to enjoy not only our very special Cloudy Bay experiences, but also the best of the Marlborough region. Let us prepare your itinerary and be your own personal concierge!

The Shack sits on the site of the original bungalow that our founder, David Hohnen, lived in and which was destroyed by fire. The new Shack was developed by award-winning New Zealand architects and is constructed from natural materials, including weathered steel, wood, stone and glass. Inside, it showcases the best of New Zealand art and design, with open living spaces and four double ensuite bedrooms (three with bath tubs) that reflect the local environment: the Cape Suite, The River Suite, The Mountain Suite and the Cloud Suite.

From June to September 2020, we are making available a limited number of 'Secret Shack Escape' packages for two nights (pricing is based on up to 4 people in two en-suite bedrooms).
