The Bishop Selwyn
Big fish, dramatic coastline and magnificent food! That's the North Island. Bishop Selwyn Resort overlooks Paihia and offers easy access to the rolling, rugged countryside, stunning tidal estuaries, mangroves and long silvery beaches of New Zealand's Northland and Bay of Islands. The Bay's 144 islands are renowned as an aquatic playground.
The spacious and modern resort is within easy reach of the beach, the boutique shops and superb restaurants of Paihia. Take a refreshing dip in the pool or relax in one of the spas, either way you'll emerge ready to explore what is, without question, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The Bay of Islands is a feast of activities for lovers of water sports, where kayaking, canoeing, windsurfing and, of course, deep-sea fishing are all on the menu, Hopefully the latter provides something sumptuous for a BBQ back at the resort! The Bay also boasts many historical sites and incredible walking tracks through some of the most spectacular countryside in the world. The cathedral-like forests north of Dargaville are home to the Kauri, one of the oldest and largest trees in the world. To stand beneath the canopy of these giants of nature is truly humbling. But nothing compares to an audience with 'Tane Mahuta' - the Lord of the Forest. This 1,200 year-old bad boy is over 50 metres tall!
For memories that last longer than your suntan, it's got to be Bishop Selwyn Resort. Come see for yourself.
