Thank you so much for an amazing relaxing weekend filled with amazing food and the perfect amount of attention from Michael and Zenga the owners. We stayed in the Chief suite which was warm and perfectly relaxing! We accidentally left behind some belongings in our bathroom and they were more than happy to send it to us in the mail.... More

I could not find any other place that I would want to spend special moments with the love of my life. I... More

This is a very special piece of heaven in the mountains where every detail is thought of to make the stay as relaxing as possible. Our tent suite was just beautiful- waking up with that mountain view was extraordinary, and it is the perfect balance of luxe and nature. Michael's hosting and Zenga and Sam's cooking is nothing but thoughtful... More

Michael and Zenga have found a very special kind of magic, one that they're thankfully willing to share with a lucky few. We loved and cherished every moment. Their philosophy and delivery of food is perfect for us; locally sourced, clean eating, superfood dense, amazingly presented and gorgeously tasty. The suites are DIVINE! Everything you could wish for, and extras... More

No surprises that this retreat is a Trip Advisor award winner. The hosts were absolutely fantastic, the food wonderful (great idea to have a brunch on departure date rather than breakfast), the retreat designed for privacy yet with great views (especially from the pool suite), the location- amazing and a pleasant one hour drive from the lower North Shore of...

The weekend went a beautiful pace. Michael and Zenga have created Sangoma with passion; passion for beauty, passion for food and passion for each other. Thought has gone into everything from the architecture, aspect of the sun, the breezes, the gardens and the art and music. The separate suites combine total privacy with openness, bush views and nature. Three highlights... More

I don't think our weekend at Sangoma could have been more perfect. We arrived to the wonderful welcome of Michael and Zip and were shown around our Suite. It was the most amazing place I have every stayed in and I would have been happy to live there for the rest of my life. The weather was perfect, the hospitality... More

When my SO told me she had booked a weekend away at an eco-friendly resort in the Blue Mountains, my thoughts immediately went to roughing it in a draughty log cabin and eating organic lentils out of a can. Fortunately, she has far better taste than that and, little did i know I was about to receive one of the... More
