Wow what an amazing time we had at the Aruma River Resort! From arrival to departure Don and Nicki went out of their way to help us in any way. They are friendly, genuine people that set a relaxed, comfortable feel throughout the entire resort. We stayed in the executive house which was perfect for our family. It was spacious,...

What a treat. We were welcomed warmly by Don and Nicki on our arrival. Don took us under his wing as we were 3 ladies in distress, novices at transporting and securing our canoes. Nothing was too much, such a great couple! Lots of laughter and a great stay. We'll be back at this wonderful part of our beautiful Murray....

Swimming, sailing, fishing, BBQ, tennis, basketball and generally relaxing. A great getaway only an hour or so from Adelaide but feels a million miles away. Probably need a motor boat if staying any longer. Credit to caretaker as the grounds looked immaculate. House was modern and well appointed the photos on this site do not do it justice.

Had a large group weekend getaway, fantastic location, facilities had something for everyone. Hosts Donald and Nikki were the friendliest people, and helped out with anything that was needed. Houses were all very clean and comfortable. Can't wait to go back.

Great place to stay but booking agency not friendly to deal with. Caretakers very friendly/helpful. We stayed in the river house which is old but well set out. BUT we had house mates of the rodent kind but my feedback in relation to them ignored. Takes 2 weeks to get bond back.

Had a terrific time in an absolutely stunning home. Views to die for, the grounds are immaculate and staff (caretaker) was extremely friendly. Would highly recommend if you want a great family/friend getaway and only just over an hour out of Adelaide.
