The Farm at Cape Kidnappers has been named in Conde Nast Traveler’s GOLD LIST 2022 - the best hotels and resorts in the world as chosen by the magazine’s global editors in seven cities across three continents. Cape Kidnappers is the only New Zealand property to make the list.
This latest award recognition is testament to the exceptional hospitality experience, and timeless style offered by this uniquely New Zealand luxury lodge. It also reflects the high level of esteem that Robertson Lodges are held in by discerning travellers world-wide, and how much New Zealanders have to be proud of on the global hospitality front.
“It has indeed been a challenging two years for the hospitality industry, and to be named in the GOLD LIST 2022 is just so uplifting, said Jay Robertson, Chief Operating Officer of the family-owned business, Robertson Lodges.  In New Zealand, the country where the ‘luxury lodge’ phenomenon was born, and the accommodation bar is set high, this accolade says a lot about the guest experience at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers. We offer a personally tailored and genuine style of hospitality, and our guests really do come first. This is truly a heartfelt honour for the entire Robertson Lodges team”, Robertson added.
This award should spark travel inspiration for New Zealanders as they begin to enjoy post-lockdown breaks and summer holidays in their own beautiful backyard, and also for the rest of the world as New Zealand prepares to open its international borders next year. 
Guests staying at The Farm at Cape Kidnappers can readily explore the acclaimed Hawke’s Bay wine region – with its world-class wineries, just beyond the Farm gates. Add to the offering with the opportunity to explore unique activities presented within the 6,000-acre property visit the Cape Sanctuary and the Gannet Colony, play the world-ranked Cape Kidnappers golf course, relax and unwind at the Spa, and to savour  exquisite seasonal cuisine and wine offerings.
Since opening to international acclaim in 2007, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers has set a benchmark for a relaxed and laid-back style of authentic luxury that is both quintessentially New Zealand, yet sophisticated and world-class. The property is a New Zealand icon and this heart-warming award recognition clearly shows that The Farm at Cape Kidnappers ranks high with travel editors from around the world.
Expanding on the methodology and selection team behind the GOLD LIST, Conde Nast Traveler commented “The Gold List is, more than ever, made by humans for other humans - something we need more than ever in this day an age”.
