Aro Hā


Located in the South Island, just a 40-minute drive from Queenstown airport.  Aro Hā’s ‘Zen inspired luxury’ starts from the ground up, from the location of their 8.4-hectare site on a terrace with incredible views over Lake Wakatipu to the buildings which are monitored by a building management system.

Aro Hā was created by Chris Madison and Damian Chaparro who shared an interest in creating a place for those interested in nature, adventure, self-development, alternative health, and results-oriented fitness.

We have heard from several people who have had the pleasure of spending time at Aro Hā and many more than once. Aro Hā is the perfect Wellness resort in New Zealand to take some time out for you.
