We were keen to try Spicers Sangoma,having stayed in 3 other Spicers properties. This time we choose a 2 day mid week break. The property is in a lovely location and Taylor greeted us warmly on arrival and showed us around the main house, before taking us to our suite where a lovely fire was burning. Whilst we had the...

We travelled from Perth to Spicers Sangoma Retreat for a weekend in the Blue Mountains. We had a fabulous time. We were greeted by Pablo with a glass of champagne and he showed us around and explained how things worked at Sangoma. We stayed in the Pool Suite and it was lovely. We had a lovely view across the tree... More

Lovely area to spend a few nights but unfortunately one can see the urban style overdevelpoment creeping up on the boundaries so you dont really escape the city. The quality of the accomodation and food all very good but the nearby sites had spoiled it.

I took my partner to Sangoma for his birthday and it was a perfect escape for the Easter weekend away. Although it is on the higher end of accommodation pricing, it is very good value for money over a period such like Easter where general hotel prices skyrocket. We had the gourmet escape which was definitely a perfect description of... More

We escaped to Spicers Sangoma Retreat for a 3 night break at the end of January. The retreat is exactly that, an escape just a short drive from Sydney to the middle of nowhere (in a good way). We loved our luxury room with its beautiful deck and easterly outlook over the gardens to the horizon. The staff, including the... More

My wife and I have stayed in some of the best hotels across Europe and Asia. I cannot say anything new about this place that hasn't already been said. Sangoma is quite simply incredible and the most individual and unique place we have ever stayed. Pablo and Sam are frankly living legends and couldn't have done any more for us.... More

I am late in writing this review, and for that I apologize to Sangoma; never have I stayed in a place more deserving of an excellent review on Trip Advisor. Sangoma was our first stop on our honeymoon last October, which was our first trip to Australia. I picked Sangoma from its excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, and it did... More

My wife and I recently had a weekend here, we have read previous reviews so had reasonable expectations which were all exceeded. From the moment you entered the resort all the stresses and strains of life were put on hold for 48hrs. Pablo was a kind and caring host and Zip and Sam looked after us in the evening and... More

If you are thinking about going to Sangoma and haven't ever had the opportunity to drop your old habit of expectation only to find more...and even more satisfaction and surprise.....then here you are :) This place breaks all the old concepts of what cliche means in regard to fine hospitality. Superlative accommodation. The food rivals fine cuisine. The setting is... More

This Devine accommodation is not far from Sydney. Gorgeous accommodation in the bush. The rooms are very spacious and extremely comfortable and very tastefully decorated with large balconies to relax on. The only sounds are crickets and birds as your cabin is very private. Fabulous food and delightful genuinely helpful and interested staff! A real treat for a short getaway!
