Our Place is Your Place

In keeping with our sustainability principles, each guest will be booked into Te Atawhai homestead – a beautiful old home, just outside of Te Aroha that has been restored and redecorated to create separate accommodation for each guest. Here we can accommodate 6 singles or 6 couples with their own ensuite. You will not leave the lodge except to do the hike/walk, and have a dunk in the Te Aroha mineral hot spa.

Nothing Tastes as Good as Healthy
Te Atawhai wellness retreat observes the principles of a whole foods diet, which means we focus on unprocessed, whole plant-based foods that are ideally organic, locally grown, seasonally fresh and bursting with flavour. We also exclude alcohol, caffeine, wheat, dairy and refined sugar from the menu.

Daily Mineral Spa

Time to Relax

Each day you will immerse yourself in the natural silky waters of the famous Te Aroha mineral spa. This water will revitalise and relax, ease joint and muscle pain, and leave your skin soft and hydrated. Cascading from the Mokena Geyser, it is the only natural soda spring in the Southern hemisphere.


Everything is created twice, first in the mind and then in reality

At Te Atawhai wellness retreat you will be introduced to the practice of Mindfulness as part of our Wholeness program. Mindfulness is the practice of noticing what we don’t normally notice – our thoughts, physical sensations, sights, sounds, and smells – because our heads are too busy thinking about what we need to do, or going over what we have done, haven’t done or should have done.

Becoming a master at mindfulness is life changing. Autopilot will become a thing of the past and instead you will learn to maximize every moment of your life, celebrating what is happening right now, rather than what may be in the future.
