Positive Reviews

The Surroundings are Beautiful

The beautiful retreat is surrounded by lush greenery and serene natural surroundings. Wilderness is all around, including the famous glow-worms, and the grounds and beautiful, well-maintained and feature gardens and walking trails.

Such a Peaceful and Inspiring Place

Guests reported that this retreat is so peaceful with lots of opportunity to mix with other like-minded people and participate in classes and activities that provide excellent learning and growing opportunities. The ambiance around the place is light and positive. There are many places to wander freely and enjoy the peacefulness of the area including a garden and several walking trails.

Seemingly Remote, Central Location

Despite the fact that this retreat is located in a seemingly remote location in the middle of nowhere, it is in fact located only a short drive away from the city centre of Auckland and all the other world-class attractions of the area.

Negative Reviews

The Bathrooms are Shared

Guests reported that they weren't too happy about the shared bathrooms and the fact that the bathrooms were quite a distance from their rooms.

Poorly-maintained Facilities

The facilities at this retreat are not very well-maintained. The spa is rarely working and the shared bathrooms are dirty.
