The Aro Hā Wellness Retreat offers tailored fitness and wellness retreats designed to get you looking good and feeling revitalised.

Start your day right at this environmentally-friendly health retreat with sunrise Vinyasa yoga before embarking on a hike around the rugged surrounding terrain. Aro Hā offers something completely different to a traditional holiday and is perfect for anyone conscious of their carbon footprint.
