Things to do

The Split Apple Retreat is on the border of the waterfront Abel Tasman National Park, located at the top of the South Island an hour outside Nelson. The park is world-famous for beautiful walking tracks past a series of secluded golden beaches and along the top of towering granite cliffs. Renowned too for its mild year-round climate, it offers a host of activities, including walking, kayaking, fishing, horseback riding, sky-diving, sailing, swimming with the seals and dolphin-spotting. A helicopter can be arranged to drop you at remote spots for walking or private picnics at otherwise inaccessible beaches. We’ll organise your activities, with private guides if you’d like, in advance.

Or perhaps you would like to enjoy the aesthetic and artistic bliss of a traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony and Calligraphy session with a kimono-clad Japanese Grand Master Calligrapher and Tea Cermony adept (Exclusive to the Split Apple Retreat).

And, of course, on your return, be treated to more of our gourmet fare and unwind and recover with our Health and Wellness services and facilities.
