If you think you deserve a real treat, or even if you don't, book in for a few days at Spicers Sangoma. This eco resort is set in a lovely bush setting only 80 kms from Sydney and a gentle 300 metres (1000 feet) altitude which lifts it just above the heat of the plains but below the freeze of... More

Well, Spicers Sangoma Retreat. What a place! First off, there is the spectacular natural beauty of the Blue Mountains; then you ice it with Bowen Mountain and it’s stunning views over Sydney; and then you top it all off with the multi-faceted jewel that is Sangoma and your life has been completely transformed. Everything at the lodge is absolutely perfect... More

My husband and were fortunate to spend 2 nights in the Chiefs Suite over Christmas. I wanted relaxation and pampering - and certainly got that. The suite is amazing, over 2 levels with a private plunge pool and the most amazing views in the distance of the Sydney skyline. We arrived on Christmas Eve and were warmly greeted by Rhiannon...

We enjoyed 2 nights, saturday and sunday, at Sangoma. Beacause of the relatively high cost at Sangoma I am writing a more detailed review than I normally would.

I spent one night with my partner in the absolutely stunning 'Tent' suite, with its mirror ceiling and beautiful chandelier, overlooking the tranquil Hoomeroy creek. The room was absolutely immaculate, filled with luxury products and creature comforts. At night, the view in our room was lit up with lights which meant we could still enjoy our spectacular view!

Sangoma is everything you could hope for and more. Whilst its location is not far from Sydney, it felt like we were in another world, far from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Sangoma, “the aptly named Zulu word for healer” is just that. We have never been to or left a property that leaves you feeling as relaxed and rejuvenated as we did here. We most certainly did not want to leave, so much so that we booked to go back 6 days later. Arriving the first time we were welcomed and... More
