Enclosure Bay

If a romantic, 200-degree view of the Hauraki Gulf appeals to your interests, Enclosure Bay is the place to go. This lovely boutique hotel resides right between Little Oneroa and Palm Beach – so it’s no wonder the venue takes a lot of pride in its surrounding vistas. Enclosure Bay also has a penchant for exclusivity as the hotel comprises three intimate rooms: two guest suites and one smaller bedroom.
