New Zealand is a place of wonder, a vacation destination boasting fabulous landscapes and elegant accommodations that promise and deliver serenity and inspiration. Located on the South Island of New Zealand, the luxury retreat Aro Hā is just 40 minutes drive from Queenstown and was completed in December 2013. This brand new luxury resort accommodates a maximum of 32 guests in 11 modern retreats.

Implementing permaculture and passive house techniques, the self-sufficient wellness retreat vibrates in its surroundings. Opening on the 12th of January, the eco-resort welcomes guests with a serene simplicity echoing the complexity of the natural surrounding landscape:

“The vision is Zen inspired luxury, where the luxury comes from intelligent design, function of space, and exceptional programming, rather than opulence or excess.”

You should see the experience they can provide – like vinyasa Yoga, meditation, sub-alpine hiking, functional strength training, therapeutic massage and detoxifying cuisine – but I’m pretty sure the landscape alone can make anyone dream of just staring for hours.
