  • Three minute walk to the healing Ngawha Hot Springs and Ngawha Spa available for public use
  • Bay of Islands on one side, Opononi and Waipoua forest on the other - all within a 30 minute drive
  • Fully fenced spacious section, two sunny decks and seasonal fruits at your doorstep

Take the time to heal yourself at New Zealand's unique healing hot pools (Ngawha Hot Springs) and mineral spa (Ngawha Spa), which are only a short stroll away from Ngawha Retreat and usually are open for public the whole year around.

Enjoy the spectacular views over Opononi, or see the mighty Tane Manuta - 2000 years old Kauri tree in the Waipoua Forest on the North Island's West Coast. Drive the other way, and have a fancy breakfast at Paihia - which is also only half an hour away. See the dolphins or visit the historic Kerikeri,- all before coming back to Ngawha Retreat in the evening and relaxing in healing clay waters of hot pools.

Ngawha Retreat is ideal for the curious traveller as the central base in the Far North for a short stay, just as it is perfectly suited to a group who wishes to undergo a healing course at the local hot pools over a couple of weeks.

If you need more information about healing properties of clay water or are interesting in healing packages which we offer in Summer, please contact us directly.

  • Excellent location - walking distance to the Ngawha Springs

    Excellent location - walking distance to the Ngawha Springs. I have made this my home away from home when I am in the North! It's so relaxing and spacious.

  • Lovely place to stay

    Lovely place to stay. Perfect for families with young children. We are very grateful to Yuri for giving us an extra night stay as our flights were cancelled and we were delayed a night. If we are ever back up those ways again we will definitely book to stay here.
