3 Day Romantic Break in Bay of Islands

Day 1 | Arrival at Donkey Bay Inn 

Donkey Bay Inn in the Bay of Islands is the perfect destination for a relaxing weekend away with your other half. Nestled on a private hillside with jaw dropping views, indulge in pure luxury for a romantic getaway you’ll never forget.

Arrive to a glass of bubbles to sip on one of the many ocean facing balconies before venturing out into Russell for a sunset dinner at one of the many great restaurants on offer.

Finish your evening back at Donkey Bay Inn where the outdoor bath will be waiting for you to sink into under the stars.

Day 2 | Set sail in Bay of Islands

Enjoy breakfast overlooking the stunning ocean views before a day out cruising at your own pace on a private 54 ft sailing catamaran, offering you a totally unique and luxurious way of experiencing the Bay of Islands.

The Bay of Islands is made up of 144 islands, so exploring by boat is by far the best way. Once on board, sit back, relax and admire  the beautiful views at sea, passing remote islands, and keeping an eye out for dolphins and other marine life.

A two hour stopover allows plenty of time to enjoy a delicious lunch prepared by your captain and to participate in your preferred water activity. Choose from kayaking, swimming, or exploring the local islands and beaches. The Stand Up Paddleboard (or SUP) is very popular too!

Once returned to shore, take advantage of one of the gourmet eateries for a romantic dinner.

Day 3 | Homeward Bound

Awake to a final breakfast by the ocean and perhaps enjoy a final wander around Russell Township before preparing for your journey home feeling relaxed, refreshed, and recharged.
