Northland’s luxurious Eagles Nest gains Qualmark Gold status

Eagles Nest has been awarded Qualmark Gold under the Sustainable Tourism Business criteria.

Eagles Nest is a world class villa retreat in New Zealand’s Bay of Islands. Designed and furnished in an eclectic international contemporary style, the estate’s 75-acre gardens and lodgings blend into the natural topography and foliage. Eagles Nest accommodates a maximum of 30 guests in five self-sufficient, luxuriously appointed villas, ensuring the utmost privacy, security and seclusion.

Alongside Qualmark Gold status, Eagles Nest has been rated by Qualmark as a 5-star Boutique and Lodge experience.

Adam Howard, Eagles Nest General Manager, says the accolade is testament to the work the team has done behind the scenes towards sustainable practices.

“It’s a credit to our hardworking team who bring their characteristic Northland warmth to work every day, alongside a genuine desire to surprise and delight our guests.

“Behind the scenes we’ve put a great deal of effort into limiting our footprint, driving a sustainable approach to our operation, supporting our local community, showcasing Northland food and beverage, and developing our team.

“Eagles Nest strives to create new and memorable guest experiences and showcase the amazing landscapes, culture and hospitality we have here in the stunning Bay of Islands. The Qualmark recognition is testament to that hard work,” said Adam.
