I booked this retreat place for my birthday with my family. I saw a 4 people package online, but it says it's a 'student package'. So I called up and the receptionist told me as long as there is one student it should be fine. So we rock up on the day, excellent venue, very beautiful environment and lovely staff... More

A surprise Christmas present from my husband which he booked after hearing Deborah speak on a radio travel show. I initially had misgivings as we were driving down from Sydney. We arrived mid afternoon and were greeted with a cool drink in the Guest Dining/Lounge area overlooking the beautiful gardens and bush. It was a lovely way to relax after... More

My husband and I wanted to try the Japanese retreat, after loving our stay a year earlier at the Balinese retreat. The room is beautiful with tatami mats, kitchen area looking out onto gardens, and a large and impressive bathroom. The Japanese dinner was yummy, and our massages relaxing. I would certainly return for another relaxing weekend away.

Drinks on arrival, followed by an hour long massage. All food was included, but for the price you pay, you would expect that. However, the food provided was wonderful. A credit to the chef. Ultra friendly staff that will cater to every whim. We stayed in the Balinese room. This was beautifully decorated, featured a king sized soft four post... More

I took my wife here for her 50th birthday night on the twilight package. Sure it was not the cheapest suprise I have given her but was well worth it. Picture yourself lying side by side in a beautifully appointed massage hut, rain pattering on the roof, frogs croaking in the pond outside, a kookaburra cackling in the distance and... More

The staff here are an amazing team and provide quality service with a smile. Everything here was amazing; the meals were more than what we were expecting, treatments were fantastic, the rooms were unreal giving us an authentic Japanese experience and the gardens were absolutely breathtaking. The amount of hard work and detail that has gone into the retreat should... More

The space is thoughtfully designed, and beautifully finished, the bathroom was especially appreciated and the spa was really great for a soak looking out onto the Japanese garden. Futon was comfy, and the room was spacious. The dinner was nice but not amazing, and not quite filling. Kitchenette was serviceable for basics only (tea, toast). We only stayed one night... More
