"Fabulous guest stay for a couple who want to get away from the city and experience gourmet Te Horo.
The dinner, breakfast and hospitality and guest rooms were amazing.
Myself and the bridesmaids used the lodge for all the wedding preparations - from the florist, hairdresser to the makeup artist. Everyone was served a delicious morning tea and light lunch.
Norbert and I ended the wedding with a bottle of champagne in the spa which was a perfect way to relax afterwards."

"Thank you for hosting us so warmly - wine, great food, a roaring fire and hot spa. Hard to pick a highlight but the feijoa shortcake was a perfect way to finish the night you have a very happy and classy part of NZ here."

"Staying at Ammara is a special experience and one we highly recommend. Keith and Adrienne are warm hosts who make you feel so welcome in their beautiful home. It's just like staying with friends. A lot of thought has gone into every part of our stay from the very comfy beds, robes. Delicious port, chocs and fruit to the great music and hot tub. All our meals were taste sensations - in particular the Moroccan tomato confit. Would love to come back one day."
