A subtropical sanctuary
Tucked away on Waiheke Island’s Palm Beach, Te Toki Retreat provides a stunning location for your wedding ceremony and reception. Picture lush verdant plantings, smooth green lawns, romantic pathways and steps, a magnificent outdoor fireplace and total privacy.
The new outdoor entertaining space becomes a dance floor so guests can dance the night away. The spacious Atrium with its roaring fireplace overlooks the beautiful gardens and the sliding glass panels open up to let light breezes through in warmer weather.
The Retreat comprises two self-contained holiday homes nestling in six acres of sculptured gardens and manicured lawns. Each and every window offers an outstanding view. If you plan to spend the night, the Retreat House can sleep up to 12 in five bedrooms, as can the Guest House. Why not spend the weekend and take advantage of the spa, pizza oven and 6-burner BBQ!
At night, the gardens come alive with extensive lighting, some of it coloured to provide a jewelled effect. A Balinese style outdoor bar supports your entertaining requirements and ample refrigeration for all your bubbly!
The Retreat can seat up to 150 guests, catering for both formal or informal settings. There is space for a marquee to be erected, or more intimate weddings can be hosted in the Atrium which has a capacity of up to 65 seated or 80 cocktail. www.tetokiretreat.co.nz
