  • Niue was the perfect place to relax and unwind. Wellness Retreats NZ hosts wonderful retreats, everything was so well thought out. The little touches really make you feel cared for. Such a wonderful experience, I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone needing a little time out and self love.

    Retreat GuestNiue 2017
  • I thoroughly recommend this retreat! It was a real treat and exactly what I needed to de-stress and revive myself. My favorite pastimes are yoga, fitness and learning about wellness so I was in my element. Mel is an expert at reading peoples needs and Kaytee and Paddy, a perfect combination to enhance the experience.

    Retreat GuestNiue 2018
  • Wellness Retreats NZ thank you so much for an incredible few days in Niue and for giving me the chance to reconnect by disconnecting from my hectic life. Everything was amazing - the setting, the food, yoga, workshops, adventures, snorkelling, the travel arrangements, the Scenic Matavai staff and most importantly the people. What an awesome bunch of humans to be stuck on an island with. Thank you.

    Retreat GuestNiue 2017
  • Such an epic five days, best island holiday ever! I’ll never just go to a resort again. There was the perfect amount and variety of activities. I snorkeled with dolphins - amazing!! The food was incredible and we were so well looked after and totally spoilt. Kaytee’s workshops were fascinating, Paddy has to be the best PT around and Mel ran the most blissful yoga classes. What a dream team. I can’t thank Mel, Kaytee, and Paddy enough, I’m floating home so light, so restored.

Corporate Wellness

A thriving business relies on the health and vitality of the individuals that keep it running. Keep your employees healthy, happy and motivated and they, in turn, will help keep you customers and clients loyal.

With modern day lifestyles, people do not often get the chance to unwind, de-stress or re-energise. Our goal is to provide a foundational skill-set to help support work/life balance. All of our programs are uniquely designed to empower people on an individual level, as well as increase the productivity of the business as a whole.

Some “Wellness in the Workplace” ideas include:

  • Weekly onsite yoga classes
  • Healthy snack workshops
  • Full-day wellness retreats
  • Wellness mornings – educational talks, guest speakers, Q&A sessions.

Email mel@wellnessretreatsnz.co.nz for more details about how we can craft a unique wellness plan for your team today! 

  • Mel and her team did an amazing job creating a “Wellness sanctuary" at our recent Deloitte Festival of Fast Growth, held at Villa Maria. Along with inspirational speakers and topical panel discussions, our guests were treated to informative sessions with Mel around the importance of wellness, movement and nutrition in the work-place. Several of the 250 attendees listed Mel’s session as the highlight of the entire day. Perhaps swayed by the blissful head and shoulder massages provided by Mel’s team! The day went completely as planned, due mainly to Mel’s thoughtful and professional approach. We can’t wait to have her back.

    Retreat GuestNiue 2018
  • Being a busy mum to my 3 ½ and 2 year old I was yearning for some “ME” time. I was hesitant at first as we had been on a single income for years however I was stuck in an exhausting rut and needing a pick me so I bit the bullet and attend a wellness retreat. It was the best thing I have done for years. Money well spent, as I gained so so much out of the day from the speakers and practitioners, not to mention all the delicious foods and drinks on offer and an AMAZING goodie bag at the end of the day. If your nerves are getting the better of you don’t let them, Mel is so welcoming and everyone else there is just as excited, nervous and/or anxious as you. I thoroughly recommend it. Thanks Mel and all the other speakers/practitioners it was exactly what this busy mummy needed.

2017 Retreat Reviews

We started the year on a lovely high with our Motivate & Move urban retreat at the stunning Sapphire Room, Ponsonby Central. Our lovely guests were motivated to move their body, set their goals for 2016 and find their inner spark with our inspirational speakers, yoga and movement workshops. This retreat was a short-format programme packed with fantastic speakers and practitioners who each had just 30-45mins to motivate and inspire. A perfect urban escape for busy ladies, without having to leave the city.

Moving into May we hosted our new theme Nurture & Nourish retreat tailored boost immunity for the cooler month. Our guests nurtured their bodies and nourished their minds with our educational nutrition, wellbeing, movement, and meditation workshops.

In June we enjoyed a fabulous day of learning and relaxation at the Tamaki Yacht Club for our Vitality Workshops Retreat, overlooking Auckland’s Waitamata Harbour. It was a perfect venue for a mid-winters day! Our guests spent the day doing yoga overlooking the ocean, learning key tools to help bring vitality back into their everyday lives from our inspirational speakers and indulging in delicious wholefood cuisine.

In September we enjoyed an inspiring day of relaxation and learning at our Recharge & Reset, held at The Sapphire Room in Ponsonby Central. The venue was an urban oasis of calm, the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city living. The day-long retreat was designed around optimising digestion, infusing self-care, revitalising the immune system and re-setting after the cooler months.

We closed the year with Motivate & Move back at our urban oasis, The Sapphire Room. A retreat on reflection, home practices, re-empowerment and healthy nutrition. At the end of each retreat, guests are gifted a deluxe take-home goodie bag full of treats from our amazing sponsors. Yet another unforgettable retreat year… lookout for some new themes next year!
