The Landing is located in the Bay of Islands in the far north of New Zealand’s North Island. The 1000-acre property comprises six private beaches, an award-winning vineyard, lush wetlands, and four extraordinary Residences positioned throughout the property.
Each stay caters to the individual and can be as restful or as active as desired. The magic of The Landing reveals itself in the experiences on offer, especially those that involve the sacred, calm waters of the bay. Guests can enjoy world-class fishing, diving in-season for scallops and crayfish, paddleboarding, snorkelling, and more. From catching a fish off The Landing jetty, to day trips with The Landing’s boat Iti Rangi, to exploring the seas aboard luxury sportsfishing vessel Ata Rangi, the possibilities are endless.
Also intrinsic to The Landing experience is a garden-to-plate dining philosophy, with bespoke menus able to be created to suit any taste. The Landing’s vineyard provides guests with a literal taste of The Landing; a selection of wines is complimentary for all guests.
The spirit and warmth of The Landing lie in its history. It is here that Maori and Europeans first met, exchanging goods, language and culture to create a new nation. The Landing’s hospitality team is made up of local residents; people who have lived in and loved the area for many years, and are proud to share it.
The Residences are exquisitely designed by celebrated New Zealand architects Nat and Pip Cheshire. Each one has a unique, richly textured modern aesthetic, complete with contemporary New Zealand art and historic artifacts.
For those visitors who truly never want to leave, there are currently a limited number of opportunities available to secure a place within this globally unique community. Nestled within the property’s established vineyards, boasting magnificent views and maximum privacy, the Vineyard Villa is available for sale, and other vacant sites are able to be purchased.
The Landing is the vision and personal passion of Peter Cooper, a New Zealander who divides his time between New Zealand and the United States. Peter is the founder and Executive Chairman of Cooper and Company, a private investment company whose New Zealand interests include the Britomart development in downtown Auckland.
The Landing is situated at the southwestern tip of the Purerua Peninsula in the Bay of Islands, located in the far north of New Zealand’s North Island. The Bay of Islands is famed for its long sunshine hours, world-class boating, diving and fishing and abundance of fresh produce.
The Landing stands on some of New Zealand’s most historically significant land and has been developed with the blessing and contribution of the local iwi (Maori Tribes). The property has several sites of particular cultural and heritage importance, and the land where these lie is held in a charitable trust to ensure their preservation.
