Linda and Rob Schofield established their Bed and Breakfast/Retreat 'Awatea" in 2008.Guests experience delicious country style breakfasts and dinner (by arrangement) where the food is home grown and locally More sourced. Guests can experience aromatherapy baths under the stars, an infra red sauna, reflexology or the pamper package. For the more adventurous guests guided fishing and surfing experiences are available. Pampering both body and soul is their motto, it’s all about treating yourself.Subtly sophisticated, the three guest suites are complimented with luxuries. The ensuite and private bathrooms have underfloor heating, ecologically friendly and personalised toiletries and the finest towels and bathrobes. Guests are pampered in an environment of tranquillity and privacy and rooms with breathtaking views.If you are seeking relaxation in luxurious surroundings, then look no further. Just minutes from Waimate township, you will find Awatea. This spacious and homely two storied boutique B&B offers spectacular views of the hills and sea, leaving you reluctant to leave and eager to return, whether for business or pleasure. Less
