Do not stay at this hotel if paying by credit card. When booking at this hotel you have a choice of paying by cash or credit card. If you cancel a 6% charge is a deducted from your refund. In my case this was $504 deducted when New Zealand was placed under lockdown. I have had trips cancelled this last year because of COVID-19 on Expedia, Booking.com, and other hotel chains. Every other company has refunded 100% back on a credit card when it was a government shutdown. I supposedly spoke to the owner of this establishment who would not budge. I did not cancel the trip, the trip was cancelled on me. 6% is an exorbitant fee to charge through no fault of my own.

I just finished a full body massage at the Nautalis and it was amazing. The ladies at the spa were friendly, proffesional and lovely! The room was clean, relaxing and beautiful. The massage therapist was so good. She was very confident in what she was doing and had nice strong hands, Which I can only guess comes from lots of experience. She makes sure you are comfortable throughout the process and is super lovely. Of course the worse part is when it ends. I have had many massages on the Island and this has been by far my favourite..totally recommend.

A group of 7 people had dinner at the Nautilus restaurant . We paid for everything we had , but there was a discrepancy with our bill . 1 Cocktail that none of us had ordered was on our bill . We all left , but the next night , one of our group returned for dinner , he was asked to pay for 3 cocktails from the night before. We all were certain that we had paid for everything we had. 1 wrong billing from the night before had multiplied to 3 by the next day . Very suspicious . Beware of your tab. Also sorry to say that the fish and chicken were tough and over cooked.

Highly recommend getting a massage from here! The deep tissue massage was like no other, covering every muscle and ache in the body! I left feeling so relaxed. To begin the lovely staff scrub your feet in a warm foot bath and it was the best start to my treatment!
