There are many things to love about the Promised Land Retreat. To begin with, it's hard to imagine a more rejuvenating setting among the lush farmland and rainforest of the aptly named Promised Land. The chalets are thoughtfully designed to maximise the views and ambience of the area, while offering complete privacy and comfort. Check-in was seamless and in general the chalet was very well decked out. There are a couple of minor things that could be improved (the electric stove in our chat was rather slow, we couldn't get Netflix to work and the pillows could perhaps do with a refresh) but these hardly matter when you are in such a uniquely beautiful spot. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay.
After 5 nights in the Bower Chalet, it was hard to pack up and leave. The Chalet is brilliantly designed so you always feel a part of nature and it’s surrounds. We spent most of the time on the deck looking to the hills and enjoying the beautiful array of bird life including the Chalet’s resident Bower birds. This place is a must for those who want to connect with nature while enjoying the comforts of some special accommodation.
My husband and I spent a week here in May 2021. It was perfect. Peaceful and serene with a charming view from our balcony. The chalet itself was very comfortable with luxurious linen and every home comfort. As “city slickers” we loved feeding the chickens every day and being rewarded with still warm fresh eggs. Resident donkeys Alby and Zorro kept a quiet watch over our comings and goings. The communal laundry was a bonus. Best of all were the beautiful walks to the Never Never river directly from the property. Buzzing Bellingen was a short drive away. We would love to stay again.
We’ve had a beautiful stay at Promised Land Retreat! Would love to come back. The chalet (we stayed in the Bower) was the perfect setting for a quiet couples retreat. 15 mins into town for local cafes and cute shops. Lovely walks in your backyard. The chalet was perfect and the setting idyllic. Would highly recommend!
What a spectacular property. Absolute peace and serenity with amazing views of sunrise over the horizon. Very impressive chalets and everything thought of by the lovely hosts. Will definitely return to the promised land retreat would happily encourage anyone to visit.
