From 26 March 2020, New Zealand is in lockdown for four weeks to stop COVID-19 in its tracks.
That means that, for now, the Retreat is closed. We’re already looking forward to re-opening and sharing our beautiful part of the world with you again.  With that in mind, we have put together some affordable winter packages to celebrate a return to normal with you.

We invite you to receive our Winter 2020 package offers.  

*Subject to availability. Terms and Conditions and Special Winter 2020 Cancellation Policy applies.
Not valid with any other offer. Not redeemable on existing bookings. Applies to bookings made directly with the Retreat.
