Created by Karen and Wayne, the hosts of Makoha Retreat, this is a unique place inspired by their exotic journeys around the world. Here you can unplug from the digital world and reconnect to yourself against the background of the infinite blue crystal clear waters of Tutukaka.

The full-height glass windows bathe the interiors in natural light and help to awaken your senses with the sounds of nature. If you are in a creative mood, you can also make use of the collection of musical instruments on offer.
