Rainforest retreat was one of the most beautiful places we stayed in New Zealand. We stayed for a night in Queen Ensuite on 24-Apr-2011 and the place was very serene.
It has a beautiful mountain background and a stay there can really refresh one after a hard day of glacier hiking. One just needs to let oneself soak in the beauty of the greenery all around and the freshness of the cool breeze.
The place was very neat, cosy and comfortable. The interiors of the room were simple but elegant.
There is a feel good factor about the place and I definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Franz Josef.
I have attached few pics of my room.
Thanks and regards,
