 A small gate is the epitome of discretion. Enter, and drive along a winding road for at least 10 minutes, taking in an expansive landscape of native woodland forest, riverbeds and pasture land, before ascending the elegant driveway to The Farm at Cape Kidnappers. Here you’ll be greeted by friendly staff and jawdropping 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a slice of paradise that easily persuades guests to switch off from the daily grind, and exhale with a sigh of relief.

Even the TV sets are neatly hidden behind wall coverings or paintings in its 22 guest suites, while the heated infinity pool looks out to sweeping views of the farmland and ocean beyond.

Whether you’re a guest or taking a day trip with friends and family, the spa facilities are worth adding to the itinerary.

Nestled atop a hill of fragrant lavender bushes, it’s a further opportunity to truly make the most of the tranquil surroundings. The lavender is included in signature spa treatments, from the lavender pedicure to a signature lavender scrub and massage, a blissful 80-minute treatment involving full-body exfoliation followed by a soothing steam shower.
