A spokesperson for the resort confirmed the former Northland MP was appointed this week.

Shanghai CRED Real Estate bought the 1000ha resort on the Karikari peninsula for nearly $29 million in November 2013.

Mr Sabin resigned from Parliament in January.

His resignation sparked the Northland by-election on 28 March, won by New Zealand First leader Winston Peters.
