“Memories shared for a lifetime”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

Sonja, TWR is HEAVENLY - gardens, views, textures & colours. Accommodation hits the senses - pleasing to the eye, delicious fragrances to the nose, wafting tones of pleasure to the ears and furnishings to please the touch, not to forget the comfort! (Pancakes a great novel idea!) Dining an exquisite experience x2 - the decor set to make you feel like the rich & famous, but discreet, the fooood - to die for!, sumptious & delicate & calling on all the taste buds to celebrate; service & attn from Hans & Thierry certainly made us feel so special. Massages by Melanie were a real transportation to an elevation of peace and tranquility & pain release. Nibbles & bubbles from all aspects of TWR were sensuous whilst enjoying that late afternoon sun turning everything to gold, as indeed it was for us. Magic. Thank You Sonja for the most wonderful experience - a product to be so proud of and because you do it so well - congratulations.! And we will return.

Room Tip: Imagine all suites would more than satisfy!

My wife and myself stayed at the Tumbling Waters Retreat during August 2012.
We decided to treat ourselves for my birthday so we picked somewhere within an hour from home and at a venue that was special.
On booking we advised that we would both like to book a massage each and also dine at the restaurant on the night time.
That's all we had to do and Sonja took care of the rest. She emailed us regularly with the details to keep us up to speed.
This was really appreciated as I knew everything was in hand.
On the day, everything turned out exactly as planned.
The massages were excellent and we would highly recommend this to any visitors. A great way to relax.
Had the weather been warmer, we would have tried out our private pool. Fantastic layout and views over to Bald Hill and out to see. Breathtaking.

We then indulged in our own sauna and enjoyed a glass of bubbly before dinner, which had been booked for us at 6:30pm
The service was excellent and the ladies who looked after us always had a smile on their faces. They also managed the fine balance between looking after us and also not smothering us.
We were very impressed.
Sonja introduced herself to us and we had a bit of a chat. I have to say that she made us very welcome.
The food was excellent and of high quality.
We are both looking forward to visiting Tumbling Waters again.

What you see on the website is exactly what you get.
Very clean, modern, the personal touch when required and high quality.
You will not be dissappointed.

10/10 from us!

Room Tip: The Bath House, with its own Sauna and private pool, in its own quiet grounds, is highly recommended...

We were married last Saturday 4th August 2012 at Tumbling Waters Retreat. It was THE most PERFECT wedding anyone could ever ask for! The staff, the location, the food, the ambiance, the EVERYTHING was unbelievable!
We also stayed there for 2 nights and that too was perfect!! Soooooooooooo relaxing and absolutely beautiful!
I recommend Tumbling Waters Retreat to anyone that is getting married or just wants some relaxing time away. You will not be disappointed!
Thank you so much to Sonja and the team who looked after us on our special day. We really appreciated it!

The perfect setting for a romantic getaway. We stayed in the bath villa which was complete indulgence and worth every penny. The degustation menu at the restaurant was superb and the views from the retreat were breathtaking. Highly recommended - i will be going back!

From the time you enter the automatic gates until your tearful departure, the entire experience is a luxurious and relaxing time. Take the time to sit and read in the sun, enjoy the breathtaking views of the escarpment and ocean. Make sure to book a table at the restaurant, not only is the food unsurpassable, so is the ambience and service. We will definitely be returning to the private oasis of Tumbling Waters Retreat.

Room Tip: If you want that extra bit of privacy try the bath house.

If you are looking for wow factor and to spoil someone and yourself then do yourself a favour and stay here.
Tumbling Waters has it all style, class and everything comfort catered for. The suites are first class with so many subtle features built in that you are left breathless and not wanting for anything more than other than to be able to stay longer.
Walk up stairs to the Restaurant and be blown away by the food and service - divine!

All this and then there are the stunning views out and over Stanwell Beach and simply exquisite gardens.

We went for a 10th anniversary celebration and fell further in love with each other and this place.

Congratulations to Sonja and her team on the little piece of paradise they have built after an heroic battle
