The ‘main ingredient’ of Raglan’s no. 1 eco retreat
S itting high above Manu Bay and Ngarunui Beach looking out over the Tasman Sea you’ll find Solscape, Raglan’s iconic eco retreat.
Front and centre sits their onsite cafe, The Consicous Kitchen, serving sublime plant based taste sensations to guests while enjoying world-class views.
Established in 2002, Solscape has steadily grown its attractive and earthy offerings catering to the full array of Raglan visitors from around New Zealand and the Globe.
Aside from the renowned quirky yet comfortable accommodations and the irresistible food on offer, Solscape also hosts a fully kitted up surf school, daily yoga classes and the most beautiful little massage studio in Raglan secluded amongst native bush.
The accommodation is best described as quirky, earthy and comfortable with options for all budgets. From Glamping in Tipis and Lotus Belle Tents to having your very own Caboose for the night to the Hobbit like hand-made Earth Domes and the contemporary Eco Baches that showcases we can live in comfort while minimising our ecological footprint, there’s a place for everyone to rest their head.
As guests wake, the promise of organic espresso, healthy smoothies and defiantly divine tasting vegan breakfasts draws them from their private nooks, through the many organic vege gardens to the front of the property. The open air dining verandah with rolling lawns, streaming morning sun, fresh sea air and ever changing sea views is where guests can get amongst the relaxed but lively summertime morning bustle with interesting fellow Solscapers.
The Conscious Kitchen continues through the day with delectable treats and into the night with varying dinner offerings from the legendary wood fired pizza nights, curry nights and the ‘village dining experiences’.
All in all, Solscape is a one of kind destination within Raglan and the Conscious Kitchen is fast becoming its main ingredient.
