"We were married at the incredible Horseshoe Bend estate on 23rd March 2019. Wow what an incredible venue and the staff at release were fantastic in helping us check in - we loved our gift basket upon arrival not to mention the incredibly detailed tour of the accommodation and facilities. A big shout out to Andrea who took us through each and every detail of the property - she was amazing! Planning a New Zealand wedding from Australia can be difficult but the release team gave me a list of vendors and their communication was impeccable. My husband and I look forward to staying at horseshoe bend again and booking through the team at release wanaka!"
"I just wanted to say a special thank you for everything you have done to help our wedding and family time be so enjoyable and special. We all had such an amazing time at Horseshoe Bend (despite the rain) and no one wanted to go home! Thank you for helping things get set up and run so smoothly, you truly have made it so easy. Thank you for sharing in our excitement too!"

"This was the holiday of a lifetime. Our family group of 10 adults and 6 grandchildren spent a wonderful week in these magical surroundings while we holidayed, relaxed and celebrated a wonderful family event over the New Year period. The estate is huge, superbly maintained and has a wide range of sporting and entertaining areas. The accommodation is excellent, incorporating architecturally designed villas, state of the art equipment, thoughtful design and luxury finishes. All of these features plus the natural setting come together to provide the ultimate luxury holiday, with privacy, relaxation and sporting facilities. Thank you for sharing this magnificent property with us and for your wonderful hospitality. It was a magical experience, which we will always remember. Wanaka is a remarkable place. If it is not on your bucket list, then put it on the list……..and also add Horseshoe Bend Estate!"
