I stay the sunset cabins for a girlfriends wedding... there was four people in one cabin and the amount of room we had was brilliant. The cabin had a bathroom off each sleeping area so there was no waiting handy for 4 girls and the lounge area was spacious and comfortable. The weather was perfect so we even speard out...

Took our caravan to Thou Walla for Easter. The grassy van site was lovely, with plenty of space. The amenities are very good, and the staff were lovely. The resort is in a lovely location next to the beach and close to some gorgeous restaurant. The onsite accommodation is a mixture of cabins and glamping tents. The tents have gorgeous...

Awesome location and great facilities. Highly recommend the glamping tents. Comfortable, secure and luxurious tenting with tvs, and sound system showers. This is a place for couples, groups and families. Big areas for activities.

I treated my husband to a surprise weekend away to Thou Walla Sunset retreat for his birthday in March and to say he loved his surprise is an understatement. We both loved our first glamping experience - the tent itself was immaculate - hard to believe you're actually in a tent - the plush king bed and the flat screen...

They changed our Villa at no extra cost as we didnt like the fabric lounge because my wife is asthmatic. Everything a family need to have a great holiday was there. My 5 year old daughter just loved the stay and mainly the pool.

Our first glamping experience and we loved it! We stayed over Christmas but did not find the resort at all busy but even if it was busy the tents are really well spaced out so are quite private. Most have great views of the beautiful water, we had dolphins come past on 2 evenings which was fab. The tents are...

The pictures online looked amazing, so we booked a cabin for Australia Day long weekend. I made the booking for 2 adults and 1 child, however the cabin we got should really have only been for 2 people, despite it being advertised as a 4 person sleeper (G03). The room had tea and coffee facilities, yet there was no milk...
