Hot Tub under the stars

Overlooked by the sugar loaf mountain, our wood-fired hot tub is available for you by pre-booking. Water is drawn directly from a spring in the mountain and the timber is sourced from our forest. The experience is fantastic for soaking away your tension, whatever the weather! The canopy of oak trees provides great shelter, but you can still see a sky full of stars.
