In today’s busy lifestyle attending a retreat can help us to reconnect with nature and balance our physical and mental being, providing healing, grounding and clarity of direction in our everyday lives.

Wānaka provides fabulous options for all style of retreat itineraries. 

There is an abundance of amazing local activities, professional caterers and world class outdoor tracks and trails for all levels of fitness.

The combination of facilities, environment and amenities here at Oasis create an atmosphere for relaxation and the cultivation of new skills and ideas through collaborative learning.

The Venue

Imagine facilitating your next retreat here at Oasis, waking up for your morning yoga session to the sound of birdsong, a painting lesson on the open lawns surrounded by mountain vistas and close of the day with a soak in our Wood-fired Hot Tub.

The Central Lodge hosts high end self-catering kitchens to incorporate your own nutritional programme, or perhaps contract in a local private caterer to complement your retreat initiatives.

The onsite Tipi or Yurt Rooms, can freely be transformed into alternative space for practitioners, meditation or small group activities

We work with retreat facilitators from near and far to help create their dream retreat and have hosted a range of creative, adventure and wellness retreats.

Our Yurt Rooms can readily accommodate 10-14 attendees in a mix of twin or triple share and single occupancy rooms. For larger groups there is the option to house additional attendees off site.

The Shed Guest-house is often added on, providing an additional 2 Queen en suite bedrooms..



Jo Sharp | Sharp Moves | Love Life Fitness Retreat

I have been facilitating wellness retreats for over 10 years around the world and I give everything about Oasis Yurt Lodge a BIG tick.

From the accommodation, facilities, location, and of the fabulous support we received before and during our retreat everything exceeded our expectations.

Jo & Rusty are the ideal hosts making sure all our needs were met and providing invaluable local knowledge of the area.

Oasis Yurts is the ideal location for holding a retreat, my clients immediately felt at home and instantly relaxed in the unique  yurts surrounded by the beauty of nature. I am looking forward to sharing this amazing experience with more of my clients in the future.

Rachael Brown | A Bit More Soul | A retreat for photographers & creatives

I hosted A Bit More Soul – a photography retreat for Photographers from across the world at Oasis Yurts in 2018 – not long after it had all opened. Jo and Rusty went out of their way to make us feel welcome and were adaptable with our often crazy requests to make the Lodge and Yurts work for our 50 attendees.

It was a wonderful hub to bring everyone together each day for our talks and small group workshops. We also appreciated Jo and Rusty’s amazing local knowledge which they shared with us which helped to enhance the stay of our attendees.

The Yurts, Lodge and surrounding area surpassed our expectations and we would recommend this little slice of paradise without any hesitation.
