​Te Waonui Forest Retreat

Te Waonui Forest Retreat

Nestled amongst the South Island’s west coast wilderness, Te Waonui Forest Retreat is an eco-lux tranquil sanctuary near Franz Josef Glacier. Wake up to the enthralling sounds of birdsong, and admire the views of gargantuan mountains and lush leafy rain forests – all from the comfort of your room. Rooms are a generous size at the Retreat ranging from 28 – 33sqm and are split across four separate accommodation wings; known as Kahikatea, Totara, Rimu and Matai, all linked by covered walkways.  Well-appointed guest rooms feature the highest standard of amenities, such as a personal pillow menu, natural wool mattress underlay, plush down duvets, and high-speed internet access. Guests will enjoy dining among the trees in The Canopy Restaurant, savouring quality local cuisine including an indulgent five-course degustation dinner created from the freshest West Coast and South Island produce. Local activities range from adrenalin-inducing rock-climbing and helicopter hikes to experiences at the Retreats relaxing Amaia Luxury Spa and the Franz Josef Glacier hot pools.
