Magnificent!!! Truely beautiful by day and night. Sitting in the bath with a glass or red watching the night sky was delightful. A brilliant idea beautifully created.

Anne and Adrian Blake, Nelson, N.Z

I think this may be the best place in the world! I watched the stars from 3am until 6am. Never have I experienced anything like this. Words and pictures do not do this place any compliments.

Wow, What an experience! Such a magical place, from incredible sunrises, silhouetting mountains to star gazing at night. Words and pictures do not do it justice.
