Joya Review

This heavenly spot really encapsulates what Nelson is all about, with its focus on low-allergen materials, high eco-values, natural therapies, and wholesome food. Oh, and throw in some lovely hospitality and intelligent conversation and you'll get the idea. There's a B&B room and a studio unit in the main house and a delightful eco-friendly cottage in the garden, complete with its own water garden and turf roof. The cottage also has a wood burner for winter and has been fitted out with low-emission materials and natural fabrics and furnishings. Host Paulina also works with Tomatis sound therapy. This is a lovely place to stop a few days and recharge.
