Yoga at sunrise, subalpine trails, chimes of Tibetan bowl, immerse and heal in nature’s transformative powers. Aro Ha, New Zealand
Waking to the beautiful chimes of a Tibetan bowl, you’ll begin your day watching the sunrise over the mountains from the yoga studio. After a perfectly balanced and nourishing breakfast, you’ll explore the subalpine trails, immersing yourself in the transformative power of nature

Overlooking the otherworldly expanse of Lake Wakatipu, in New Zealand’s Southern Alps, Aro Hā is an intimate 20-room lodge offering holistic practices (yoga, meditation) meant to sculpt the body and lift the spirit. The self-sustainable property’s biggest drawing card is definitely its epic setting between colossal sapphire lakes and snowcapped peaks—into which the minimalist-chic cabins seamlessly blend.
Retreats run year round during set dates and range in length but the average is five nights. My favourite time of year to visit is between April to November thanks to warmer temperatures and longer days.
