Sakura - Interior Photos of a Stunning Bed and Breakfast and Retreat, Your Sneak Preview.

I was recently invited to experience Sakura, a bed and breakfast and health spa tucked among the rolling green hills of the Waikato district just outside of Cambridge, New Zealand. The official opening will be in August 2016 but here is your preview of the sumptuous interiors of this wonderful retreat, lovingly built and decorated by owners, Lloyd and Gwen. 

There is an overwhelming feeling of light and space when you first enter Sakura. It is open and spacious yet warm and comfortable.

Make yourself a cup of tea and sit in wonder at the forest scenery just outside. Sunrises and sunsets are glorious here so you may catch one of those as well.


Cambridge, New Zealand - Not What I'd Expected!

After miles and miles of rolling deep green hills dotted with sheep and cattle, we arrive in Cambridge. Much to our surprise and delight, it was not at all what we expected to find 135 kilometres (83.9 miles) from Auckland.  

Cambridge is a quaint mix of colonial traditional and hipster all set amongst well maintained lush gardens and flagstone pavements. 
And as we were to discover, Cambridge is not only home to dairy farmers and horse breeders but also elite athletes. National sport organisations like cycling, rowing, and triathlon are based here.

Nestled in hills of Cambridge, New Zealand, Gwen and Lloyd have created a quiet haven perfect for reflection, relaxation, recovery or meditation.
Whilst in the final stages of preparation for the official launch of their retreat and bed & breakfast website, you can keep up to date on their Facebook page, here.
These images are from the Yoga room, stay tuned for further posts which will include the rest of the property and local attractions such as Hobbiton and Blue Springs.
