The Retreat

A Unique Luxury Lodge

The Retreat is a truly exceptional living experience.

Offering contemporary luxury in a spectacular setting, with grand stone and timber architecture that sits in perfect harmony with the majestic natural landscape. A short stroll from the main lodge, it may be booked by suite for a unique couple’s getaway, or on an exclusive-use basis for families or groups seeking a private escape.

Soaring ceilings and panoramic glass windows frame the sparkling depths of the lake and mountains, while the expansive outdoor terrace features a spectacular infinity pool and private hot tub under the stars, perfect for relaxing night and day. Indoors, every detail has been considered, from the well-equipped gym and sauna to the impressive open plan living and dining area.

Five-Star Lakeview Lodge Accommodation

All six individually-designed suites feature a king bed, open personal living space, walk-in wardrobe and spacious en-suite bathroom with walk-in rainfall shower. Four of the suites also have a deep bathtub.

Each suite offers a deck or balcony with lake and mountain views where guests can relax and enjoy the tranquility of our surroundings.
