I have visited Spicers Sangoma twice before and this time was just as amazing. We were greeted at the drive way and taken up to the guest lounge to enjoy some bubbles on the deck over looking the beautiful rolling hills with Sydney city on the horizon. We stayed in one of the newest rooms which was so beautiful! Day... More

This is a small boutique type of retreat with only a few rooms and a small intimate restaurant. The rooms are beautifully decorated with large bay windows towards the forest. This is a place to rest and unwind.

My partner and I stayed here in October after a very stressful 30 hours of flying from London to Sydney.. Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed with a (very much needed) glass of bubbles by Rhiannon, who showed us to our room, kindly offered to lit our rooms log fire, and practically looked after our every need throughout our stay....

This was our first stay at Spicers and we did not really know what to expect. From when we first drove in to the property right to when we left all staff on site were very friendly and professional, and nothing was ever too much to ask for. The cabin we stayed in was luxurious and well fitted out. Alcohol... More

We stayed for two nights at Spicers Sangoma. Having been to all the other Spicers Retreats, this was by far the best! The pool suit we stayed in was absolutely heaven! We didn't leave the property for the two days, it was so relaxing just to lay by the pool, read a book on our private deck, or curl up... More

As all good grand daughters should do, I've just returned home from spoiling my 78yr old Nan at Sangoma! We both loved Rhiannon's warm hospitality, Sam's delicious degustation and Heidi's warm and attentive service! We were lucky enough to stay in one of the newest suites with views of the beautiful Australian bush land with a relaxing sounding waterfall flowing... More

We enjoyed a wonderful two night stay in the Chief Suite. We originally booked for one night, but on arrival we knew that wasn't going to be enough. After a spectacular dinner we booked for another night, Go treat yourself!
