Join us in the healing embrace of Cape South Wellness Centre. Nestled within 16 acres of sprawling gardens and grounds, Cape South Wellness Retreat’s state-of-the-art facilities include a heated magnesium pool, spacious verandahs, an infrared sauna, and spa pool. Luxuriously and generously furnished, Cape South was ranked by the Guardian as #1 in their ranking of the five best Antipodean retreats. And with stunning views of the Waipuka hills and sea, it’s no surprise.


The Cape South homestead boasts six ensuite bedrooms, a sitting and dining room, large breakfast room, and well-appointed kitchen. The retreat’s cottage is home to two beautiful bedrooms – one twin, one queen – a kitchen, living and dining area, along with a cosy wood stove. There’s a mixture of queen-size, super king, and twin beds available, and wifi throughout.


It’s our belief that healthy and wholesome food is a critical ingredient for mindfulness. In line with that belief, the retreat’s menu will be vegetarian and gluten-free. Made with local produce, the food will be fresh, seasonal, and planned with the specific dietary requirements and wellness goals of our guests in mind.
