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 en-suite 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.


The Art of Self-Care Ayurveda Retreat is thrilled to bring you the talent and expertise of our personal chef, Matt Cooper. Following Ayurvedic principles, Matt uses fresh produce to create nourishing dishes that contain the six tastes: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent. When all six tastes are present on the plate, our body and mind are satiated, serene and content.
