Best holiday accommodation we've ever experienced! My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the tipis. Very romantic and relaxed. We used the pizza oven and outdoor kitchen facilities which were great, and had brekkie at the cafe on our last day which was delicious. Would recommend to anyone!

Surfing hippie vibes rule! Cool converted railway carriages to sleep in and cooking over an open fire. It's a fair distance from Raglan town (but only a 15 minute walk to the surf beach) so buy your groceries in advance if you don't have a car. Pop down the road to enjoy the sauna, only 2 dollars.

We enjoyed meeting people from all over the world, mostly young enough to be grand kids, and all very fun and real with us. Love the choices of lodging. Not your normal hotel -- more hostel-like but with options. Great yoga class. Fun meeting people in the kitchen.

Amazing location with a beautiful walk to the beach. easy to hitch to town. Clean rooms, decent staff, decent showers, basic salt pepper and other spices provided. beautiful garden. free wifi at the cafe in front with an amazing view, paid wifi in the shared kitchen area. kitchen is locked at 1030pm, very strict.

The team at Solscape were very accommodating to my needs; I had just finished intensive exams, whilst managing my own business and was a little stressed to say the least! They rearrange the accommodation to suit my need for privacy and quiet, the massage with Bernadette was personalized and sensitive to my physical and mental wellbeing and the Saturday morning...

Thanks to the team at Solscape for such an epic few days! Highly recommend a night or 2 at this beautiful retreat. Stayed in a tipi with 3 other friends and was lucky enough to have the whole area to ourselves (right before easter!) Awesome out door kitchen area - pizza over, gas hobs etc. If you are the type...

In desperate need of some stretching I attended a yoga class here with my husband and my friend. The class was fine, not quite my favourite style of yoga but a nice class for a Saturday morning. After the class we spent a few hours lounging about in the garden, enjoying the spectacular view, drinking smoothies and eating the delicious... More

Not joking, this place deserves every possible positive review the world has to offer. The owners have a heart of gold and have naturally managed to set up a golden place! Beautiful work guys... something to be well proud of! I hope to be back someday!

I had 7 nights in the small earthdome at Solscape, and found it healing and refreshing. The staff are really helpful, I love the environmentally sensitive philosophy that this place embraces, and the location is breathtakingly beautiful. I would caution against having too much food in your space in the communal kitchen - I did have food stolen while I... More
