We were lucky enough to spend three amazing nights at Watea over the Easter weekend. We enjoyed a gorgeous room complete with an incredibly comfortable super king bed, ensuite, sky tv and tasteful decor. The house is beautiful with the hall, rooms and dining room wrapped around a relaxing outdoor area. We had a couple of lovely nights sitting out in the spa with the outdoor tv and speakers at our disposal. Our hosts Ewen and Iris were so welcoming, making our experience at Watea a memorable one. We were treated to delicious breakfasts at a beautifully set dining table. Ewen shared his passion and knowledge about wine and we found his recommendations most helpful. The modern amenities and our host's attention to detail ensured our stay was an incredibly pleasant one.
Thank you Ewen and Iris, we can't wait to come back!

There is a guests' wing which is separate from the main house. This includes a beautifully furnished guests' lounge. The heated pool, hot tub and decks create a prestigious resort ambiance.
