Our Mid Winter Retreat August 5th -8th


August 5th -8th 

In the peak of Winter on the Maruia rivers edge surrounded by beautiful native forest we are hosting a very special retreat.    Designed around the Danish word and concept Hygge ~ meaning a complete feeling of cosiness, friendship, laughter, delicious foods and the very best of what life has to offer. 


You will feel completely removed from everyday life to enjoy a deeply nourishing 3 night experience. Think about hibernation in paradise while doing everything good for the body + soul. 

Surrounded by 500 acres of exquisite native beech forests, rugged mountain ranges, gardens and terraces, Maruia Retreat is an extensive natural estate nestled alongside the magnificent Maruia River.

The Estate showcases its beauty through the extensive nature trails found on the property. In close proximity to The Lodge, both Braeburn and Lyell tracks are perfect for guests wanting to explore the glorious inner West Coast region.

This place is pure magic and an unforgettable destination. Located 2 hours South of Nelson, we will fly into Nelson and be transported to Maruia. The retreat is set up with everything, beautiful rooms, spa, sauna, yoga studio & restaurant! The idea is to arrive in paradise and not have to leave. This will give the body and mind a complete chance to switch off & enjoy complete relaxation + rejuvenation.
