Beautiful property and rooms. Lovely hosts who cooked a yummy dinner and breakfast for us. Breakfasts are large so ask for small serving if not a big eater! Enjoyed the spas and the views from the balconies. Highly recommended for a romantic getaway.

I almost didn't want to write this review because I don't want to advertise how awesome this place is. But alas, to not share this beautiful place with the world would be a crime. Sure it's swanky- it has a bar, cinema and spa's and an infinity bath that I had to extract myself from after successfully turning myself into...

Rob and Ian make this a highly personalised and outstanding experience. Lovely location, indulgent amenities and room and plenty of nice food. Selecting the dinner option was a special treat complete with beautifully laid out table on the front deck by the sea. We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend there.

Very impressed with Starhaven, I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get away from the hustle and bustle and relax. You will want to come back. The beach is just across the road too, and the local towns a few minutes away.
