Guest Reviews of Aro Ha Wellness Retreat
Aro Ha is truly one of the most special places I have visited on earth. The balance of environment, nutrition, activities and experience is in perfect proportion. From the moment one arrives the attention to detail and care of the staff shine through to make you feel most at home. The toughest part of the entire experience is accepting that it must come to an end. I cannot wait to visit again.
