Takahuri Retreats

Relax    Connect    Reset

Takahuri Retreats invites you to a quiet place along the Whanganui River

A place away from noise. Relax into the space. Connect with what you have been missing. Reset your mind and body in nature.



Spending time in Nature is a great way to slow down and catch your breath.  You can be involved in the activities on offer or find a spot by the river or under a tree no pressure.


We offer a range of activities through out your time with us that we believe will gently allow your self to connect with the environment and yourself


Taking time for yourself will give an opportunity to make a review and adjustment to reset everyday life. 

Retreat Options
