4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2011

Kanimbla is unique and so peaceful. the hosts
Nigel and Tony are only too happy to please and Tony is an amazing chef!! We attended a yoga retreat there and found it to be perfect for the purpose. The accomodation is spread over two tri level cottages on an eco tourist property. We were there for a yoga weekend and practice was taken in the studio that is adjacent to the adobe where meals were served (so yum) and incredibly generous in size!! Take your thermals in winter. The lower bedroom can be a little on the cool side , however the higher bedrooms are warmer in the night - and be prepared for short walk up the hill to the adobe and studio. We had a great weekend and have already booked in again for spring. Would definitely recommend it!

We were so disappointed in our stay at Kanimbla that we are sure never to return. Firstly the "studio" is like a big scout hall with blinds that don't fully cover the windows leaving you with no privacy. It was like staying in a fish bowl. We were freezing as there wasn't sufficient bedding and no fire starters, matches were left for us to even start a fire. The fire wasn't even cleaned either. We couldn't find the owners as there was a sign up saying they were not there so we coulnd;t even ask for these things. It is over priced for what it is and don't recommend it to anyone who is expecting any sort of luxury, it's very much more for roughing it!!!
