Wonderful weekend spent there. The staff were so impressive going out of their way to accommodate us. Our room had EVERYTHING we needed and stunning views. It was raining on our weekend but the pools look great....next time :)

Beautiful pool with gorgeous landscaping and spa. Restaurant serves cocktails and lunch poolside. Totally relaxing atmosphere. Our key had some issues and the garbage shoot near our room was a bit stinky but made no real impact. Loved our stay. We'll be back

We stayed at Santai Retreat for 2 nights with friends. It has very nice rooms with a spa and large shower. It is also self contained with washer/dryer. It is in a quiet location with a coles shopping centre nearby and a short drive to Kingscliff. All in all I would highly recommend it.

We loved our stay at Santai. Our King studio room was spacious with more than enough room for a porta cot. The room was very well appointed with everything we could need. It is a little way out of kingscliff but in a lovely area with just a short stroll to the beach and an awesome walking/cycling track. The pool...

Extremely relaxed setting, lovely pool area and great spacious rooms. Close to shops, amenities and restaurants. Had an excellent treatment at the day spa. Wi-Fi connection was unreliable so if staying for business be aware.

From the time I walked through the doors at reception and was greeted by the happy friendly staff I knew this was a great place to stay. The pool was gorgeous lots of places to get away. The Spice Den restaurant was amazing and again amazing staff.
