TravTalk - India - - Well­ness Cen­tres -

Set in New Zealand’s South­ern Alps near Queen­stown, Aro Ha Well­ness Re­treat is a first of its kind re­treat cen­tre, which in­fuses ad­vanced eco ac­com­mo­da­tion, per­ma­cul­ture based self­suf­fi­ciency and world class re­sults-ori­ented pro­gram­ming. It is a pur­pose-built lux­ury well­ness re­treat, which aims to re­fresh, re­ju­ve­nate and reignite all those who walk through its doors. A place where peo­ple could em­bark on a tran­scen­den­tal jour­ney through nutri­tion, ex­er­cise, ad­ven­ture, al­ter­na­tive health and self-de­vel­op­ment, Aro Ha of­fers in­no­va­tive, all-in­clu­sive Well­ness Ad­ven­ture Programmes based on Yoga, sub-alpine hik­ing, func­tional strength train­ing, med­i­ta­tion, ther­a­peu­tic massage, mind­ful­ness and detox­i­fy­ing veg­e­tar­ian cui­sine. There are a to­tal of 20 guest rooms in­clud­ing 12 eco-suites and monas­tic sin­gles. Each room aims to re­flect a Zen-like am­biance with the idea of open­ness ever-present. Guests at the re­treat, usu­ally around 12-15 at a time, are ex­pected to share in­for­mal spa­ces, al­low­ing them to con­nect with oth­ers, as well as them­selves. Staff to guest ra­tio is high al­low­ing guests to be chal­lenged at their own level. The re­treat can ac­com­mo­date up to 80 guests for a one day event while each re­treat has an eight per­son min­i­mum. A well­ness re­treat at the prop­erty can be done in ei­ther five or seven con­sec­u­tive days. A day at Aro Ha is pre-planned to the minute. It con­sists of a dawn-wake up and in­vig­o­rat­ing Vinyasa Yoga ses­sion, a lengthy hike into the sur­round­ing sub alpine land­scape, mind­ful-med­i­ta­tion, func­tional strength train­ing, heal­ing body work and con­trast spa ther­apy. There are dif­fer­ent themed re­treats to choose from with spe­cially se­lected lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional guest ed­u­ca­tors mak­ing an ap­pear­ance. Aro Ha is not re­liant on the grid as it uses New Zealand’s largest pri­vately owned pho­to­voltaic ar­ray. It was built us­ing the premise of pas­sive haus and per­ma­cul­ture de­sign, mixed with modern tech­nol­ogy. It also boasts the first re­new­able dis­trib­uted heat­ing sys­tem in New Zealand.
