We enjoyed our best friends wedding here in August and I cannot speak highly enough of the venue and staff. We experienced unbelievable service, fantastic organisation from management to the chef and everyone in between. I cannot recommend this stunning venue enough. I never thought I'd be lucky enough to stay somewhere so beautiful. Thank you.

We spent two nights at Rockwater on a special winter package. This included room, 2 breakfasts (each), one 3-course dinner with two (generous helpings of) wine pairings, and a 1-hour couples massage. The cabin we booked was humble but spotless and nicely situated. If you've got money to throw at it, definitely get one of the tent-cabins -- they're like treehouses and really quite exceptional. The fog never lifted while we were there but it was still a great relaxing break and we'll go back.

My wife and I shared our first anniversary at Rockwater. What a splendid romantic get-a-way. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more. We had a very foggy few days which only added to the private secluded feel of the location. For couples needing some time away, rockwater is perfect. They say October is Red Wine and a book month. It really is the best description. The staff was wonderful and our room was perfect. Overlooking the small bay made for some unique photo ops when the fog rolled in. I cannot wait to come back in the summer and take advantage of the super diving and riding opportunities along the sunshine coast.

Room Tip: Tents are the primo spots. If able they have 4 tents right on the edge of the cliff and the views were amazing. That being said all tents are worth staying in. Parking for the tents could be interesting. The lot nearest to the trail walkway is very limited to the number of cars they can hold. And this lot is also shared with guests of the lodge. Depending on the tent you stay at the walk could be a little long and may include stairs. Bring roller bags or backpacks.They have two sets of cabins, some renovated and some rustic. Both are very nice and allow parking very near your cabin. I did not see or stay in the lodge.

We got married up at Rockwater this past August and it was everything we had hoped for.
The people there were so helpful. The stand outs would be Rhian and Ivan.
Ivan made us feel like family, like we belonged at Rockwater. He went above and beyond for our parents and family, our most important guests. He was kind, efficient, and never got frustrated when I emailed him too many times about room lists. He was always delightful and professional.
Rhian was the captain to our ship. She had everyone on the same page, a hard thing to do with so many people all wanting to talk. She made everything feel easy and stress free. Our wedding was made to feel exceptional by Rhian. Her ability to get to know us as a couple was so awesome. She got us right away. She was even aware that the bride hadn't eaten lunch, so she brought us a menu and gave us suggestions of things that would be easy to eat while getting hair done!
We had one issue with a curt staff member, and quietly brought it up with Rhian and she handled it like a dream. She apologized on behalf of her colleague and after that the curt staff member changed her tune. Effortless and classy.
I would recommend anyone put their wedding in the hands of Rockwater, so long as those two are still running the place.

Sincerely,
Caitlin and Chris

My husband and I had our wedding here and it really was an amazing weekend. The weather was beautiful and the scenery absolutely stunning. We were married outside near the water and the reception was held in the same spot under a tent with string lights and a clear roof. The staff was excellent. We had the whole resort booked and I talked to the front desk many of times leading up to the wedding in order to shift our guests around in the rooms. They were helpful and understanding each time. The events coordinator, Rhian, did an amazing job during the planning process to help make our wedding unique to us and she worked tirelessly to make sure all of our plans came to life on the day of the wedding. She is well organized, very personable, and overall a pleasure to work with. Im actually kind of sad I don't get to talk to her anymore!

Since the Rockwater does a lot of weddings we were hesitant about being run through the mill but I can honestly say that our wedding day at the Rockwater was very special to us. Our guests had a blast exploring the sunshine coast and we loved partying under the stars until the wee hours of the morning.
