What our customers say

  • We really enjoyed our stay at the Banya – thanks for turning the wonderful weather on for us so we could sit on those decks and take in the fabulous views in the sunshine! The Banya is almost perfect for a couple for a long weekend. Lovely setting, lovely interiors and we felt very well looked after by the Release Wanaka team
