Maruia is an extraordinary sought-after destination. In the middle of everywhere, our retreat is located at equal distance from the East and West Coast of New Zealand, surrounded by a pure and natural wonderland. The retreat allows access to many of the top of the South's best attractions, and offers multiple transport options, including charter plane or helicopter. With extensive outdoor adventure opportunities and soul-enriching wellness activities, it's easy to stay and difficult to leave. Cultivating the perfect blend of calm and uplifting, Maruia is a rare treasure in a unique location. Our private Deluxe Cabins and Villas are nestled within the beautiful landscape, offering understated luxury accommodation with an idyllic natural outlook. Located at the river's edge, this is our guests' own Maruia haven to escape and rejuvenate. A resident yoga teacher is present to conduct a daily complimentary yoga class, open to all resident guests. Our Wellness Spa features a sauna to relax and detox, as well as a massage room which will host a variety of massage and beauty therapists throughout the year.
