My husband and I stayed to attend a wedding held at the resort so can't comment on the activities etc. The cottage (deluxe) was clean and tidy - I would recommend choosing deluxe if you can. The staff were very friendly and accommodating - they put us in a cabin close to the reception area so we didn't have to walk far after the wedding finished. The surroundings were beautiful and it was a very enjoyable experience. If I was to complain about anything, it would be able to the noise (it was really noticeable when it was raining in the morning). Overall a good experience and we would stay there again.

It was a really lovely gesture of the staff to send a thank you card.

Kianinny Resort is located in Tathra on the south coast of NSW near to Bega. It has a choice of deluxe cottages, cedar cabins and motel suites, all surrounded by bushland. Our two bedroom deluxe cottage came fully equipped with all kitchen necessities including a coffee maker. Tea, instant coffee and sugar are provided, however in small quantities. You may want to bring extra. The cottage was clean though somewhat dated. There is parking alongside each cottage and a few parking spaces near to the Reception area. The resort has a pool, mini golf course, archery, play area with swings and the Sapphie Spa for those who would like to indulge in a bit of pampering. There is also a "pub bus" provided free of charge and on request to take you to/from the Tathra Hotel. Restaurant has great food and generous servings. Eat on the deck and enjoy gorgeous views of the beach. A couple of negatives - the resort does not provide much in the way of bathroom amenities (no tissues, etc) so bring your own. Also the pathways between cottages are poorly lit at night (bring a torch) as the area aound the resort is sloping and uneven. Overall it was a pleasant weekend stay and the beaches and views in the area are beautiful.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a deluxe cottage, they are more tranquil than the other accommodations.

We were a family group ranging in age from 7 weeks to 70 years who stayed for three nights. There are many things to really like about Kianniny - lots of things for children and adults both within the resort and close by. The cabins, the sports facilities and leisure activities are all well maintained. The wildlife was great with birds, water dragons skinks, ducks, dragonflies and wallabies abounding.
The cost per cabin per night was reasonable at about $220 per night with linen provided. There was no housekeeping during our stay.
Gripes: there is a prominent sign in the cabin advising that if the kitchen contents are not left as provided there would be an additional charge levied. There is no kitchen inventory provided which seems unfair. It certainly made communal eating a bit hazardous as we kept counting the plates and cutlery.
We were also not impressed with the criticism from a staff member that we had failed to clean the barbecue adequately - it was cleaned to the best of our abilities and surely with the group collectively paying around $3000 for the stay, an additional scrub could have been provided without the rant.

Spent a very enjoyable 5 nights in one of the Cedar Cottages. The cottage was quite comfortable and clean. The resort is set in bushland with a reasonable distance between each cottage. The wildlfe was awesome, sitting on the front porch enjoying a meal with the local wildlife was fantastic. The resort had a lot of activities that could be enjoyed especially Wombat Holes Mini Golf though we thought Par on Hole 10 could have been a bit higher.

We have just spent a relaxing 6 nights at Kianinny resort. It was great. We stayed in the deluxe cottages, which size wise is like a cabin at a caravan park, although maybe a little more roomy, and solid. Each cabin is set in bushland, and its quite and relaxing and ours had nice new furniture.

The resort has heaps to do - a great well maintained mini golf course, lake with canoes, swimming pool, games room, tennis court - heaps of walks on the property, heaps of DVDs and games to borrow and lots more. The kids were not bored and they had all the equipment to borrow which was in good nick.

Its a 3km walk or drive into tathra for supplies or to hit the beach, and the area is magnificent.

All round it was a great find, and if you want something quieter than the caravan parks in Merimbula, Tathra or Eden, you should consider this - its a good option.
