You can not get a better place to stay on this coast. The view is breathtakingly beautiful, especially at sunset and sunrise, over the river and sea, and can be enjoyed from the huge balcony area of the penthouse. Inside it is just as stunning with huge floor-to-ceiling windows that share the view with you as you sit in the... More

This was very expensive for what it was. We ended up walking out and not even staying one night. Very small lounge/dining area. Aircon only in the lounge area and only fans in the bedroom despite the westerly aspect. Bedrooms were tiny. Whole unit felt dirty and tacky and very old. Bed looked dirty and worn. If you wanted to... More

We really enjoyed our five night stay at the Sovereign Retreat. The Java apartment was lovely and of a very high standard. The whole retreat had a wonderful Balinese ambience. The views were amazing and the Town of 1770 was very relaxing and enjoyable. We appreciate that we were able to bring along our best friend Dobie the English Cocker... More

We decided to have stop-over at Sovereign Retreat on the way back to Brisbane from Emerald and so had two nights in the Longbok Apartment. We found this airy, comfortable, clean, well decorated and with spectacular views over to the sea. Mara looked after us very well and was courteous and friendly. She took the time to show us around... More

A Hidden Paradise...... this place is perfect for a special getaway..... We want to bring family and friends back with us next time. The views are incredible and we where made to feel so comfortable as soon as we arrived to this paradise. Also the great thing abour the position of Sovereign is walking distance to everything.
