Treetops is a beautiful property and a wonderful getaway. The grounds are exceptional - you can hike for hours and see waterfalls, rain forest, and animals (llamas, water buffalo) in pastures. Our room was fine, but underwhelming - it was located at the end of the lodge, and privacy was an issue as people routinely walk past on their way... More

We were here for lunch and drinks only with a group. Stunning location and great public lounges. Extremely friendly staff and a great chef who prepared the perfect lunch. Superior local produce, cooked to perfection. Very tasty and light. Excellent desserts.

I'm not given to superlatives. But they're what's called for with Treetops. I was a bit concerned when we turned off on a gravel road to ascend to the property - but on walking past the waterfall and entering the main room of the lodge I was overwhelmed. Our room was generously large and designed with as much care as... More

Once we got there Graeme was happy to help us. The Pheasant Cottage looked ugly from the outside but was very comfortable and homey inside. I loved the whole experience, including watching the glowworms and dining at the lounge. Service was so good we insisted giving them some wine. Excellent! A little too far from the city centre and a... More

My family of 6 adults and 4 seven year old boys visited Treetops for my 75th birthday and we all could not have been more pleased. At dinner they would let the young lads eat in the breakfast area and then watch a movie in the living room. No other guests were bothered and we had pleasant dinners. Daytime activities... More

We had very high expectations for this resort, given it's price tag and the fact that it came very highly recommended. Let me first say, that the location is absolutely fantastic. The resort is tucked away in the trees with breathtaking views of the forest and a plethora of hiking trails at its doorstep. It truly is a special location,... More

My husband and I experienced 3 wonderful days of peaceful bliss. Our villa was beautiful and the staff was lovely. My husband was obsessed with the amount of beautiful rimu used in the place ( he is a carpenter) and definitely enjoyed the surroundings. Unfortunately it rained most the time we were there but it was great just having a... More

One night was not long enough, and the 24 hours we had there not enough time to do everthing we wanted. We enjoyed everything about Treetops immensely. Room was just perfect with it opening out onto the grounds, food was great and the Spa treatment we received was up there with the best facial I have experienced. The walk to... More

Only a one night stay, but totally enjoyed the utter peace and serenity of this location with its wilderness vibe, yet not far from civilization. We stayed in the main lodge room overlooking the lawn, and I just didn't want to leave - the room is totally comfortable, the bed was the best ever, and the tranquil natural atmosphere seemed...
