At The Sounds Retreat, excellent cuisine and perfectly matched wines are an experience in their own right.

Dining under the stars or within the privacy of your private cabana is a special occasion where the best fresh, local ingredients are sourced and skillfully crafted into delicious and memorable cuisine.

Local is our ethos when choosing ingredients for the plate or glass at The Sounds Retreat. The mussels harvested in the Marlborough Sounds, fresh hot smoked salmon out of our smokehouse and herbs grown locally often feature in our cuisine. Complementing wines showcase some of the Marlborough region’s renowned Wine Makers. It’s hard to get more local than this.

Bespoke menus are presented each day and most food intolerances, special diets and allergies are happily accommodated.
