We had a wonderful time at Retiro Lodge and wished that we could have stayed longer. Our room was huge and beautifully furnished and the gardens are enchanting. Robert and Victor have a restaurant in town which was well worth a visit, and we would highly recommend. Our stay at Retiro was one of the highlights of our trip, thank...

Definitely stay here. It is the most beautiful house with flower filled gardens, vineyard and a great walking track with stunning views of the Nelson scenery. I felt at home with the very welcoming hosts - I could have stayed for another week, read books by the pool and never left the grounds. It is just enough distance out of...

This was our second visit and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The hosts, Robbert and Victor, make the stay all the more enjoyable notwithstanding the superb peace and harmony of the property. While Victor is no longer available to cook the great meals on site, he has opened a tremendous Spanish restaurant downtown Nelson which is excellent...

Very attentive and entertaining hosts who you feel are almost old friends by the time you leave. A morning walk across their large farm to say "Hi" to the alpacas and llamas followed by a fab breakfast served in the beautiful conservatory. Not too far away from Nelson to enjoy all of its great restaurants and shops and then a...

When we first arrived at Retiro Park Lodge, Robbert greeted us as old friends and after leaving to travel around New...

This is an outstanding accommodation that comes highly recommended. The service is quite exceptional, and you'll also have a chance to meet the amazing owners that have built this retreat into something that's a real experience. The grounds are exceptional with long walks available on site taking in the alpacas, the vineyards, the hens, and that's just in the small...

As you drive into Retiro Park Lodge, you know you've arrived at a special place. Experiencing the tranquil suroundings, hospitality, fantastic breakfasts, and the alpacas made it a memorable experience that we will never forget, and can fully recommend.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Retiro Park Lodge offers friendly, personalyzed, memorable accommodation in an oasis of quiet country luxury: Surrounded by an extensive garden, in a 90-acre park-like property, nestled amongst hills and sitting along the river in beautiful Teal Valley, but minutes away from Nelson City’s bustle. The property rears Llamas and Alpacas that roam freely in the paddocks surrounding the lodge and also has its own producing vineyard, olive and almond groves. Our Bed and Breakfast is a destination on its own and the perfect base to explore the region’s most sought after attractions: it is within easy reach for day excursions from “The Abel Tasman”, “Kahurangi” and “Nelson Lakes” National Parks and “The Marlborough Sounds” and its wine growing region. ... more   less
