The Luxury Network New Zealand welcomes Maruia River Retreat13th September 2020
Situated along the magnificent Maruia River and protected by mountains from the east and west, the Maruia River Retreat is a stunning boutique lodge where guests can relax, reconnect, explore and celebrate.
With only 7 luxury villas within a 500-acre nature estate, guests are welcomed with a sense of being far away from the clutter of everyday life, and invited to find shelter at the core of what is truly beautiful and peaceful.
“Maruia” (ma-roo-ee-ah) – Maori, adj. meaning “sheltered or shaded”
Taking its name from the stunning river valley it is nestled in, the Maruia River Retreat lies at the heart of an extensive natural estate encompassing a pristine native Beech forest, long-established gardens, walking trails and terraced paddocks at the top of New Zealand’s breath taking South Island.
The Maruia River Retreat is a convenient 2-hour scenic drive from Nelson, 3 hours from Christchurch and right in the centre of New Zealand. Truly in the middle of nowhere, yet in the centre of everything wonderful that New Zealand has to offer.
