Rustic idyllic oasis

This is a high vibe, low frills retreat. I'm glad I read the reviews before coming so that I knew mostly what to expect; Rustic, yet beautiful accomodation in lush surrounds. With exceptional humans. I was there on a solo retreat in the middle of winter (bring warm clothes if you're there then, as nights can be cold). KP was a HIGHlight of my time in NZ. The people here are truly amazing and have left a mark on me that will stay. From the freedom to roam and explore the property, the lush cafe food, and healing classes and facilities, this place is very beautiful - thank you KP! Things to note: - housekeeping occurs weekly-ish for longer stays and not daily - they have weekly scheduled classes that can nourish your soul and restore your spirit (some free!) - beautiful spirit that carries through the land, buildings and people - wifi is decent but not available on the whole property - basic, but sufficient, guest kitchen facilities - beautiful bedding - you may fall in love with this place.

The information I had said check-in between 3pm and 5pm. When I arrived at 3.30pm I was told the office closes at 12pm on Sundays and I was lucky to catch someone who could help me find my room. In the various sheets of information I found three different times stated for the office opening hours on Sunday.

4/5 Good

I liked that it was spectacular, organic, and aiming to be waste free. I didn't like my room, which was a cinder block, basement level, space that smelled strongly of mould and dirt.
