Rippinvale Retreat, Hanmer Springs, New Zealand
A very special New Zealand experience offering fine boutique accommodation in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Rippinvale Retreat, constructed from adobe mud blocks, sits quietly in the natural Hanmer Springs alpine landscape enjoying spectacular views. The tranquil park-like grounds - with sweeping lawns, pretty borders, lily pond, kitchen garden and orchard - make Rippinvale the perfect place to relax, unwind and experience generous New Zealand hospitality.
Rippinvale Retreat's grounds feature an outdoor alpine jacuzzi, traditional grass tennis court, petanque pit, expansive lawns and mature trees which create shady corners where you can tuck yourself away with a book. Guests enjoy 5 star boutique accommodation in Rippinvale's two stylish apartment suites and a highlight of your stay will be our fabulous breakfast feasts! Much of the food served at Rippinvale is grown in the gardens or sourced locally, our wines are from New Zealand's famous Marlborough and Waipara regions. In 2008 Rippinvale Retreat received New Zealand Tourism's prestigious Qualmark Gold Enviro award for exceptional performance in responsible tourism operations. Sustainable environmental practice is a corner stone philosophy at Rippinvale from the food we serve, the eco systems we create within the garden, to the products we source for our business. In this way we can help support our environment.
Facilities: Each suite has a queen bedroom, ensuite, sitting room and kitchenette with tea/coffee making facilities. Both suites have pretty garden views and french doors opening from a private courtyard entrance. The suites are situated a short distance from the outdoor alpine Jacuzzi.
