There are not enough words to explain how wonderful the Sangoma experience is. Michael and Zenga (plus Pun and Griffin), we cannot thank you enough for your beautiful hospitality. This is our second visit to Sangoma and our second stay in the Tent Suite; there is nothing in the world as unique as waking up to the beautiful view and... More

Just spent a very relaxing weekend at Sangoma. It is a true oasis. The food is fabulous - all whole food, fresh, local and healthy flavours. The decor is very stylish but also very cosy and comfortable. Michael and Zenga were charming hosts and have really thought of every little thing to ensure your stay is relaxing and luxurious. We...

Michael and Zenga did a fantastic job creating a haven outside of the city that allows you to experience the wilderness without leaving the comforts and pleasures of home, all in luxury. It is one of the few properties in NSW that is part of the Mr & Mrs Smith portfolio. The entire retreat is self sustaining, from the drinking... More

Sangoma is the sum of it's inhabitants, Michael, Zenga, Punda & Griffin. It's a story of their love/s, passions & hard work. Sangoma is their home, a culmination of lessons learned, influences distilled and artefacts gathered and displayed, as well as a reflection of their life and dreams which they happily share. To us Sangoma is truly inspiring and we... More

If you want to relax, get pampered, stay in luxury with beautiful surrounds, enjoy spectacular food, then book at Sangoma. The hosts Michael and Zenga know how to look after you and make you feel special. Thank you so much for an incredible weekend, just what we needed! Poondah is adorable too! Fee and Ganga

Wow. This place was truly inspiring. I think I took photos of everything, the food, the interiors and the view. Michael and Zenga were very welcoming and fun. We stayed in the Bush Suite and can't wait to go back and stay in the Tent Suite. It was just so nice to relax and not have to worry about booking... More

We are fortunate to have stayed at Sangoma three times. This time the tent suite was our choice. What a delight. So peaceful and luxurious. Repeat offenders know what it is to be Sangomarised. We love Michael, Zenga and Sam and the whole Sangoma experience. From Sangoma devotees Elana and Steve.

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
