Amazing stay! My partner and I took up their offer on the regional revival package. Katie was so helpful and pleasant to deal with and made us feel so welcome. The retreat is surrounded by beautiful nature, it’s calming, inviting and well designed. Our suite “Cumulus” was WOW amazing! The size, design, ambiance and furnishings were so well thought out. So much detail and thought has gone into this place. It’s a luxury retreat however non pretentious at all. We absolutely loved our stay and will plan to go back for sure. The pool and spa was absolute heaven. Treen from the spa was a delight to deal with she made us feel so relaxed and calm. Thank you Katie and Treen for the fantastic service. My partner and I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who needs to unwind and relax. Do it! Book now.

After a busy few months, this was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Our room (Cumulus) was comfortable, modern with everything we needed, complete with our own fireplace and wine collection. We loved the delicious pre-ordered meals we could cook in our suites so that we didn't have to worry about dinner reservation times. We were lucky enough to have beautiful weather so that we could walk to the beach, the lighthouse and around the lovely farm. If you're looking to get out of the city and take some time to unwind, we can't recommend the Lon Retreat enough. We loved it so much, we've already rebooked our next stay.

The Lon retreat is outstanding. The location is incredible. You are surrounded by water and a lovely country outlook. The staff were professional and friendly. The spa treatments were out of this world as were all the facilities. Our room had everything we wanted and was very stylish. It is a great option to have the meal service and the food was delicious. We will definitely plan to return for another reset. This is the place to go to recharge and relax.

Quality facilities with lots of classy touches both within the suite and around the property. "Cirrus" has great views, plenty of space, kitchenette, outdoor deck and neat little breakfast bar facing the ocean. Short walk to a "not crowded" beach, great guest pool area, and excellent honour system pantry with local goodies. Staff were lovely, already thinking of when to return.
