Welcome to Hopewell, an award winning self-catering lodge set on a superb, natural coastline on the water’s edge of the Kenepuru Sound. Surrounded by native forest and turquoise waters, Hopewell represents the perfect retreat. Our Marlborough Sounds accommodation offers a variety of affordable rooms, cottages and first class facilities suitable for a romantic getaway, a group celebration or family fun.  Great activities and recreational equipment for everyone as well as secluded spots for relaxation. Explore the Kenepuru Sound by kayak, fishing boat, paddle board or sail boat. Laze on our secluded beach, hang in a hammock or have a massage. Walk or bike the trails, play a round of golf at Nopera, collect your own fresh shellfish straight from the bay, or visit our resident glow worms.  You can drive, take the water taxi or Pelorus Mail Boat to get here.
