Reviews

Amazing spot in the middle of nowhere! Once in a life time experience! Don't miss it!

The most amazing location that made our NZ experience what it was. Bathing under the stars was a real experience. Make more huts!!!!

We stayed in the Slate Hut and found it to absolutely awesome! The outdoor bath was the star of the show, it took a while to heat up but we just played cards and drank wine while we waited. The most relaxing weekend away ever! Can't rave about this place highly enough.
