“We loved Koru Riverside Retreat”

The native birds and bush is truly delightful, even on a drizzly day. The retreat is beautifully appointed in Koru motif, perfect for a relaxing retreat or romantic weekend. We’d love to go back.

“Everything we were looking for on our honeymoon”

Koru Riverside Retreat was everything that we were looking for on our honeymoon. The spa was fantastic, great furniture, really comfortable, quiet and close proximity to everything (but still far away and private enough so you feel like you are away from town when you want your own space). You can tell the owners put a lot of love into the property and it made our stay really special.

Koru Retreat is the best

"On our four week NZ journey we have stayed in many very nice cottages, but Koru Retreat is the best. The combination of the House, River, SPA, Garden, and Privacy makes it our number one. We are already looking forward to coming back."

“This cottage was a dream come true”

We feel so blessed to have found it. The river, the jacuzzi and the hammock were just a few of the many special perks to the place. The property was very private and beautiful. The kitchen was well equipped for all our cooking needs. A perfect space for anyone who appreciates nature and serenity. We highly recommend this place and its hosts.

It really can’t get any better than this. Even better then the photos portray. The property is completely private and with your own swimming hole right outside the Cottage in the river below. We will definitely try and stay again before we fly home. Thanks for having us!

Koru Riverside Retreat is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed at. Breathtaking views, private swimming hole, spa, the sound of birds – a piece of paradise. 5 min drive to Coromandel town with excellent shops for food shopping and good restaurants. The retreat itself is decorated and equipped to an excellent standard with truly nothing to wish for. Communications, payments and help regarding our stay were excellent. We would truly recommend this little gem to any future guests. Thank you very much.
