2020 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
Unique, private and ultra exclusive, Mt Hay Retreat is a boutique escape that is second to none. With only 5 individual suites in total, each is filled with natural light and has been designed as your own private escape. Dominated by breathtaking views and offering a secluded and peaceful sanctuary well away from the cares and complexities of contemporary life, Mt Hay Retreat is still only minutes from the heart of world famous Berry Village. Refined, spacious and luxuriously understated, each of our five suites have been appointed with the finest of finishes. With king sized beds, kitchenettes, expansive living areas and an intuitive design that encourages seamless indoor/outdoor living. Each residence includes a generous private deck with a feature outdoor bath, complete with individual private gardens and views that stretch uninterrupted across the landscaped grounds and nearby countryside of Berry to the sparkling ocean. There is also a 33 meter indoor heated pool and spa. Serenely set on 360 acres against the majestic backdrop of Broughton Head, this magnificent property is a working farm embraced by native bushland and lush green pastures. With views that stretch uninterrupted across the rolling hills of the South Coast and beyond to the distant ocean horizon, Mt Hay Retreat is a lifestyle destination of rare distinction. Electric Vehicle charging available upon request.

We absolutely loved our stay at Mt Hay Retreat. Such an idyllic mix of tranquil and natural beauty as you lose yourself in the dreamy vista of rolling hills all the way to the ocean, while taking in the scents and diversity of the beautiful gardens surrounding the property. The various ponds with water-lilies and koi fish add to the charm. The luxurious cleverly designed suite was clean and spacious with all the modern conveniences you would expect at a 5 star hotel. Watching the sun rise from our bed was magical. It is the perfect get-away-from-it-all haven to recharge and enjoy the romance in life. We stayed 3 nights and could have stayed longer. The owners Louise and Anthony were delightful, they have created an amazing retreat to make the most of it's natural environment and

Luxurious, quiet, and beautiful. Amazing views from everywhere including the rooms. Anthony and Louise are really friendly and helpful. Even the drive up the mountain was an experience. If you want to leave the city behind and get some quiet couple time in a high-end resort, this is the place.

Mt Hay Retreat was a wonderful getaway from busy Sydney life. Two nights in this tranquil location really felt like weeks away for the mind and body. Despite the rain, we managed to get out and explore the beautiful surroundings made even better with their two friendly dogs! Perfect getaway for a couple - the apartment had ample space and endless views all the way to the ocean. Close enough to Berry to explore the town but fair enough away to feel like you were really removed from the outside world - perfect!

My husband and I stayed in the Escarpment Suite to celebrate our wedding anniversary, and we couldn't have chosen a better location. The suite was very large and exceptionally well appointed. The bathtub was a great size and afforded an excellent view over the grounds at sunset. The rainforest shower was luxurious, adding to the tropical feel of the courtyard outside. The bed was king sized and very comfortable. Sitting up in bed, you can look over the beautiful gardens. The toiletries provided were first rate. The fruit bowl and fresh milk in the fridge were lovely touches.
