Set in 5.5 acres of park like gardens, Pihopa Retreat is a hidden oasis of calm in Nelson. The retreat borders the 2.4ha Bishopdale Reserve, enhanced by heritage landscape trees over 100 years old in this heritage woodland.
Pihopa Retreat is set on the original Bishopdale Estate which was home to the first Bishop of Nelson and each suite carries the name of former Bishops who have lived on this estate.
Pihopa Retreat offers six luxuriously appointed suites. Enter to an elegant ambience, a luxurious sofa to sink into in front of the fire on a cooler evening. Curl up with a book or step out onto the balcony with a glass of wine and soak up your surroundings. Sink into your king bed dressed in premium Egyptian cotton linen, sumptuous pillows or wallow in the bath or under the high-pressure rain shower.
Your suite has its own fully equipped kitchenette with a Nespresso machine for a pick-me-up, specialty Zealong teas, and a mini fridge.
Complimentary Wine, Port, Whisky, Chocolates and afternoon tea to enjoy.
Take a swim in the heated pool or relax in the Spa pool. There’s a beach towel in your suite, together with dressing gown, slippers, a shopping bag and umbrella for a rainy day.
As evening falls join your hosts and other guests in the pool house for pre-dinner drinks and canapes, before taking your complimentary taxi transfer to and from the city to dine at a wide choice of exciting restaurants.
Wake to a sumptuous breakfast cooked by the Pihopa chef before exploring this amazing region.
