Maruia River Retreat logo

When you’re seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, look no further than Maruia River Retreat, a tranquil haven cradled by mountains on New Zealand’s magnificent South Island. Make time to relax, recharge and reset at this secluded adults-only retreat (guests must be aged 14+), stamped with a Tripadvisor Travellers’ Choice 2021 award.

Nestled on a nearly 500-acre estate, most of which is covered in native beech forest, with the sounds of the Maruia River a permanent backing soundtrack, this is one of the country’s leading wellness sanctuaries. Discover the practice of Japanese forest bathing – taking long walks amid nature – culminating in bathing in a secluded private hot tub. Stay in one of just seven luxurious villas, perfectly positioned deep in the lush native forest, and experience laidback luxury during a welcome escape from reality. With a focus on meditation, rest and wholesome experiences, a stay here is sure to soothe your soul.

  • Begin each day with continental breakfast at the Dining Lounge
