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.

The layout was two double bedrooms, 1 bathroom with toilet and a separate toilet. Good size dining/ kitchen and lounge room. The verandah was more than adequate with water views or glimpse of ,creating a lovely overview of...

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...

We loved our stay at Thou Walla. We stayed in a wonderful cabin for 13 nights. The Cabin was very spacious, comfortable and clean, and it had a lovely balcony with a nice view. The retreat itself was very quiet and peaceful. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend Thou Walla as a great place to...
