Relaxing Bush Stay

Posted Feb 7, 2016 on Wotif
We only stayed one night with 2 teenagers but this was a very comfortable & relaxing stay. The girls loved the stream walk & swim in the cool swimming hole, finished off with a relaxing spa amidst the tress & native bush. Listening to the birds & tree life whilst sitting back in the spa pool was very relaxing. The fact that there was little internet was a bonus in getting the girls off their devices and into games & reading. The restaurant was very comfortable with a good menu & food. Certainly recommend this as a place to chill out for a couple of days. The beaches are a short drive away.

Good stay.

It was rather pleasant. Was in the middle of nowhere, so trying to get food and find a place to shop was difficult. But was good to be away from civilisation. Very clean resort, away from everything. Was happily surprised.

The Best Retreat

Posted Jan 11, 2015
Pros: The secluded location, the staff especially Lane & Teresa and the food The animal noise each night and each morning
Cons: I cannot think of anything
Location: The hot tubs in the woods The stream walk The local beaches
We arrived after a long journey from Auckland all the staff were very helpful, we stayed for two days had great breakfasts and even better diners The Retreat was very well set out and had everything we could ask for We drove to a close beach that was not that busy so made our day thee very pleasurable We took a walk in the stream up to a dipping pool that was also very nice
