Property Description

Deep In the heart of West Coast Glacier country, Rainforest Retreat is a rare find, with a range of accommodation set amongst lush native bush in Franz Josef township. Enjoy privacy and sanctuary in secluded cottages and tree huts, relax in the spas and sauna, dine out and have fun at the bar/restaurant, or just relish the bush setting and cook up barbecues with new friends.

Located opposite the world famous Glacier Hot Pools and Glacier Guides Base, Rainforest Backpackers offers quality backpacking accommodation.

We have a wide range of room options including our private double or twin rooms: Tree Lodges, Tree Huts, Park Motels, Ensuite Queen rooms, Ensuite Flashpacker doubles, and very cool beds in sheds.

For dorm accommodation choose from our funky En-suite 4 Bed Flashpacker dorms, and 5 to 8 bed shared dorms. we have accommodation to suit every need and budget.

Rainforest Backpackers was architecturally designed and landscaped to merge into the existing rainforest environment whilst maximising the awesome alpine and glacier views. Park sites are also on site for campers and vans.

A huge 20 person hot tub (the largest in NZ) is available to use free of charge to our guests. A private hot tub and Scandinavian sauna are also available at a small charge.

The Onsite Monsoon bar and restaurant will quite possibly be your favourite bar in NZ, with roaring fires, regular DJ's, nightly prizes and giveaways for all your favourite activities. The Monsoon restaurant will satisfy your hunger whatever your budget with all you can eat pizza nights, backpacker meal deals and a specially created a la carte menu specially designed by our head chef Ronald Lacanilao, who has created a menu of mouth watering delicacies to treat you after a hard day glacier exploring.
