This property was hard to reach; it is on a hill with a winding road and units scattered about. After checking in at the main office building, we still had to drive to our unit or else take a longer walk on a steep incline. Were a bit disappointed in what the rooms looked like given the property is called a "spa resort". It was 70s-ish ugly decor and reminded me of the old school ski resort cabin in the movie Hot Tub Time Machine. We chose this place for the perceived proximity to Abel Tasman. If this is your reason too, double-check the pick-up spot if you are using a hiking or kayak outfit - we found out too late that our pick-up was in fact in Motueka and had to back-track a bit. Modest plus is that there is coin laundry here. Next time I would prefer to look for another property, probably in Motueka (hard to find reviews here though).
