What our clients say...

"We loved our stay at The Retreat. The Luxury Garden Villa is beautifully appointed, and the grounds are so peaceful. We loved sitting in the spa pool at night with a glass of wine looking at the stars. We highly recommend you stay here."

Luke Mills, Hertfordshire, UK

"We stayed four nights and didn't want to leave! The Retreat is a wonderful place to unwind. Breakfast on the veranda each morning watching the birds was a real treat. The spa pool is awesome. On a clear night the stars are amazing! There is so much to do in Taupo as well, and with so many dining options in town, you are spoiled for choice."

Bernie Bradshaw, Lincolnshire, UK
