“My partner and I visited the beautiful Castaways Resort for a romantic evening in November to get away from it all. We were initially just going to their restaurant Agave, as friends of ours had raved about it. However, as soon as we arrived we both fell in love with the stunning location and made the decision to stay. The staff at Castaways were so helpful and accommodating, clearly taking pride in the resort and all it has to offer. Luckily there was a vacancy which we snapped up and on being shown to our studio we were absolutely thrilled. The gorgeous luxurious beach furnishings, lovely voile of shimmering panels across the ranch slider which led to our own little balcony with a view over Karioitahi Beach to die for… just perfect. I’ve been to a lot of places, but this really took my breath away.
Our dinner at Agave was amazing, just as our friends had said and cooked to perfection. The service was warm, friendly and impeccable, the restaurant had a real relaxing atmosphere and a great place to sit outside with a nice port and coffee after dinner. While outside we watched a bride and groom and their wedding party enjoying the last part of their day, taking some beautiful photos with the sunset in the background. What an amazing place to get married. Castaways really would capture the romance in anyone, and is the ideal place to kick back and unwind. Jay and I felt amazing when we left, totally invigorated after leaving Auckland and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives behind for a little while ….and the best part for us is that Castaways is only a 50 minute drive home. We’ll definitely be heading back there again, probably for our anniversary.”
