Maruia River Retreat

Secluded South Island Wellness Retreat with Daily Breakfast & Unique Forest Bathing Experience

Maruia River Retreat logo

You are invited to leave the world behind and reconnect with mind, body and soul at the idyllic Maruia River Retreat in Murchison, on New Zealand's South Island. Nestled within a 200-hectare estate (with 180 hectares made up of native beech forest), alongside the picturesque Maruia River, this is one of New Zealand’s leading wellness sanctuaries. Make time to relax, recharge and reset at this secluded adults-only retreat, where the practice of Japanese 'forest bathing' — taking long walks amid nature — is complemented by literal forest bathing in a secluded private hot tub, yoga classes (Friday to Sunday only) and exquisite cuisine.

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. Surrounded by panoramic views of native beech forest, rugged mountain ranges, and the Maruia River, the retreat focuses on meditation, rest and wholesome experiences to soothe your soul.
