I want to stay in a Luxury accomodation in Paihia during my honeymoon. Any recommendation? The rooms should have a good view of the bay .
If you did not mind staying some kilometres from Paihia, I would recommend The Boathouse in Opua - it is located right where the car ferry to Russell starts. Great views and really luxurious accommodation right by (in!) the water.
Opua is just 3 or 4 km from Paihia which is the tourist hub where everybody hangs out. To me it would not be a place for a honeymoon.
Another option would be to stay on the other side of the water in lovely Russell. Eagle's Nest is a spectacular resort with an infinity pool and fantastic views:
If you absolutely want to stay in Paihia you could go for this place:
Here you find more accommodation options:
Check out Paihia, Russell and Opua.
This answer is too late for the person asking the question, but for others who are looking for high quality accomodations in the Bay of Islands, I would recoomend the Heritage Hotel Waitangi. It is on the Treaty Grounds, and offers various levels of accomodation. There is a on-demand shuttle bus from the hotel to the Fuller ferry building in Paihia, for out-of-hotel dining, and access to the numerous coach and boat tours that Fuller runs.
