We stayed at the cabin at Amuri Estate over Christmas and found the whole experience to be perfect. The estate and views are wonderful: Close enough to downtown Hanmer Springs to easily drive into town for dinner, a mountain bike ride, or a dip in the hot springs yet far enough away to escape reality and allow your mind to...

We stayed at Amuri for 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend and it was an absolutely perfect getaway. We had a tranquil cabin in the olive groves, with a superb view of Hanmer Springs. Lisa and Chris were wonderful hosts, always ready with advice and help. I can't recommend here enough.

Three years ago we booked a Taste of Italy session with Chris and Lisa as part of a girls reunion weekend - it was such an amazing experience that we had to do it again this year when we returned to Hanmer Springs. I dont know how but it was even better this time! The views and property are amazing,...

My wife and I stayed here on the first two nights of our honeymoon and the accomodations were absolutely wonderful! The location provided great privacy but was close enough to Hanmer Springs to make a convenient trip to dinner or the springs. Lisa was a great host and couldn't have been more friendly! loved the stay! Byron and Jacki

My partner and I had a perfect relaxing break at Amuri Estate Retreat - from our initial enthusiastic welcome by Uno & Charlie (the dogs), followed by a friendly greeting from Lisa & Chris, who were warm and welcoming despite having just concluded a hard day's olive picking. We stayed in the Wallace Peak cottage - a bit separate from...

My wife and I had an absolutely brilliant time at Amuri Estate. The retreat itself was excellent - clean, tidy and extremely well-appointed. The views from the Estate and our suite in particular were breath-taking. The celebrity greeting is a must, and the owners - Lisa and Chris - could not be more welcoming, friendly and truly interesting people to...
