Four couples all good friends; had the satisfaction of staying at Thou Walla. Each set of couples shared two bedroom cabin accomodation. The layout was two double bedrooms, 1 bathroom with toilet and a separate toilet. Good size dining/ kitchen and lounge room. The verandah was more than adequate with water views or glimpse of ,creating a lovely overview of...

Our first glamping experience and we loved it! We stayed over Christmas but did not find the resort at all busy but even if it was busy the tents are really well spaced out so are quite private. Most have great views of the beautiful water, we had dolphins come past on 2 evenings which was fab. The tents are...

The pictures online looked amazing, so we booked a cabin for Australia Day long weekend. I made the booking for 2 adults and 1 child, however the cabin we got should really have only been for 2 people, despite it being advertised as a 4 person sleeper (G03). The room had tea and coffee facilities, yet there was no milk...

The view from the verander, furnished with a table and chairs as well as a day bed was magnificent. Not to mention the close proximity...

We loved our stay at Thou Walla. We stayed in a wonderful cabin for 13 nights. The Cabin was very spacious, comfortable and clean, and it had a lovely balcony with a nice view. The retreat itself was very quiet and peaceful. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend Thou Walla as a great place to...

Thou Walla Sunset Retreat was everything we hoped for out of a week long getaway over New Years. To begin with, the reception staff Airlie and Jen were bright, bubbly and very helpful. The accomodation we stayed in was the sunset glamping. It was gorgeous with a spacious area, a large shower and a very comfy king size bed. Not...

Let me start by saying the staff were good, the spot awesome, and the room fantastic, until you sat on the balcony/deck at night and got the foul smell of the composting toilets (inside the glamping bathroom). This reason by itself would not bring me back to thou walla and reflects my rating. If they were to get rid of...

If your looking for a place to do nothing but chill, read a book, go for a walk, have a swim, find a good restaurant, sleep in find breakfast and then chill some more, then this...
