What’s better than star gazing? Star gazing from your own private spa pool on the deck of a deluxe tree house of course. There’s no nicer way to end a hard day travelling than relaxing in a hot tub with a drink in hand at the Rainforest Retreat in Franz Josef. Rainforest Retreat Manager Oscar Morgan says they opened 19 deluxe units last year and also hosted a phenomenal 90,000 guests who each found the perfect place to sleep amongst 12 acres of native bush with stunning views and scenery Oscar says their accommodation options are very versatile. “The new deluxe accommodation complements our existing tree huts, tree lodges and family tree houses, meaning that we can offer a wide range of accommodation to suit all sorts of travellers and groups,” says Oscar. “We also offer a holiday park, with powered camper van sites, motel rooms and the Flashpackers which recently won the Kiwi Experience People’s Choice Award and there is also an onsite bar and restaurant.” Oscar says whether visitors are travelling on a budget, exploring in motor-home, needing some civilisation after roughing it, or passing through and wanting a bite, they offer something for everyone.
