Everything at Sans Souci was perfect. Yes it is a little quirky and there are composting toilets, but this is more than made up for by the tranquil surroundings, the amazingly caring and helpful staff, the divine meals and desserts they create and the superb wine list.The 12 nights we had there were the most restful, 'grounding' and recharging holiday...

We loved staying here - spacious, relaxing, eco-conscious, and so close to the beach. We stayed in the large unit for three nights and really enjoyed eating here as well. It was a very relaxing place to stay while enjoying the beautiful golden bay and abel tasman park. one of our favorite experiences on our entire trip to new zealand

My wife and I first stayed at Sans Souci in 2001 and we've always wanted to return although it took us until 2017 to do so. Designed and built by the owners, Vera and Reto, it has a timeless charm. For us, the elegant simplicity is a perfect antidote to the pressure of modern life. Comfortable, visually pleasing, world-class location...

People who run this are so friendly and welcoming and our dinner there twice was top class. If you want luxury, this is not for you. It is quiet, no TV in family room, and all eco necessary items thought through. The sea/ beach which is gorgeous is about one minute walk away. If you want breakfast or dinner there...

We made an unplanned stop in pohara and managed to book a night at this funky accommodation. The staff and owners are incredibly helpful and friendly. The food looked delicious - although we decided to cook our own meal in the communal commercial kitchen - a very cool experience. The room was great for our family - everything we needed....

We really enjoyed our stay here and would love to stay again. Beautiful quirky buildings and nicely furnished. A place with real character! Super modern kitchen and bathroom facilities. Next time we would love to dine at the restaurant.

Sans Souci is a wonderful place to have dinner in Pohara. Delicious, well presented food with great service. We dined on the night beef was on the menu, very well cooked. The restaurant is situated in a beautiful location, overlooking a tranquil lush garden setting. Recommend booking early as it very popular.

Booked dinner and overnight stay here recently following a day's walking in Abel Tasman NP. It's an eco-friendly place with a restaurant, a small number of individual rooms, and a shared bathroom/wc facility - may look a little dated to some, but it works really well. Our double room had a good futon-style bed, tea/coffee facility, and plenty of space....

I've stayed here many years before and was very glad to find the place in great shape, with its lush gardens, thoughtful design and highly motivated staff and inspired owners who created this little paradise. The only reason why I slightly hesitated to write a positive review was that it is getting increasingly difficult to book a room as the...
