Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the 2nd time my partner and I have been here and both times were amazing! Beautiful setting with amazing views. We have stayed in 2 different rooms and bother were modern & comfortable. Dinner and breakfast was great. The chef came out and asked us about our meal at dinner which was a nice touch. The 2nd night we had the platter in the lounge area (which was not there the last time we stayed) Loved the open bar and the fact we could relax on our own. I will definitely be back!

Our stay was exceptional, we could not fault anything, From the moment you walk through the copper door to your accommodation a sense of calm comes over you with the wafting scent of aromatherapy, to the luxurious suites with sublime beds, and special finishing touches to make you feel welcome. The staff were outstanding and so helpful and welcoming and the owners and their son that also works there really made our stay superb. Dining on the Edge takes food and views to another level, and the breakfast cooks whip up a wonderful interesting breakfast each morning. We are already planning our next visit, if you want a truly wonderful, relaxing and luxurious stay you wont regret it!! Kay & Peter, May 23.

We became aware of Tumbling Waters Retreat during the early Covid outbreaks and vowed to visit as soon as everything settled down. Well here we are and it’s hard to know where to start! TWR is owned and run by Andrew and Sonia and boy, they do a great job of it! Lovely people too. The place is immaculate. As a keen DIY man I was hard pressed to find a single thing wrong in the property which consists of 11 uniques suites and a wedding function room. We inspected most of the suites and the variety is amazing, from the huge suite with its own pool/spa and lounge/kitchen fit for any luxury house, to the smaller suites which are equally well appointed. Any of these suites would be a delight to stay in, most with inside and outside baths with great views. We loved the outdoor spa which also has great views and heated to 38degC+. Fantastic gardens! We stayed for two nights and had a lovely meat and cheese platter on the first night and the chef cooked us a 3 coarse dinner on the second night. A big shout out for Mark the chef who did an amazing job and served us with a meal that would be suitable for any high end restaurant. See pictures. Breakfasts were very tasty, lots of yummy things to eat and nicely presented. It is apparent that everyone working in the property are very happy to be there and that’s so important to a truly wonderful experience. We love the place, 100%. No negatives, no ifs or buts, we will have come back! Thank you Andrew, Sonia and all!

Absolutely stunning location and hosts. The meals included are incredible and what a treat to have a open bar. So much to see and do in the area as well. This place is a real break away from the everyday - feels like heaven!

What a unique retreat experience which is much better than any hotel resorts I have been - beautiful scenery, serene setting, natural surrounding, personal friendly services! The staff are professional, friendly and attentive. The owners even took the time to meet us during breakfast to make us feel at home. What an experience!

We have been to tumbling waters twice, for our honeymoon and our anniversary. The grounds are immaculate, beautiful facilities, delicious meals and outstanding, friendly hospitality. Highly recommend for couples wanting to escape for two nights.

Second time here and still awesomely relaxing. Personal service unbeatable and gorgeous facilities. This time we had a wedding crowd on our last day which don't seem to respect serenity - would much rather chat loudly and smoke on their balcony - so not as restful. Also as I mention below the kitchen gets quite a bit noisier during weddings - which affects room 5. Breakfasts perfect each time and both the platter and dinner were awesome - hatted food easily.

From the moment we arrived, we felt relaxed and welcomed. This is the most stunning venue. Our luxe beach suite was beautiful, secluded and had an amazing view. The lounge area was relaxing and the ability to sit there, surrounded by nature and have a quiet drink was lovely. The three course chefs meal was delightful as were the 3 platters. Staff were very welcoming and willing to help in any way. A fantastic place for a relaxing getaway from it all. Cannot recommend the whole experience highly enough. Will definitely be back/
