My fiance and I wanted a weekend break away from the city and we came across the wonderful Takatu Lodge online. The place sounded amazing and I had very high expectations - these were met AND exceeded.
We were greeted by Heather who showed us around and made us feel very welcome. The room was fresh, clean and very comfortable. All the little touches (chocolates, flowers, chilled water) made it even better. The heated floor was pure decadence!! It was lovely to soak in a bath overlooking the vineyard and towards the coast.
Before heading out to dinner we relaxed, drinking wine, in front of the open log fire. It was so peaceful and cosy.
The whole lodge was very well designed, every detail had been considered. The beds were comfortable and very warm, just what we needed on a cold night.
Breakfast the following morning was delicious - if only every day could start that way!!
We would highly recommend Takutu lodge - it is expensive, but it is VERY worth it!! Just what we needed!!
