Enjoy pristine living and complete relaxation at one of South Island’s most isolated spots with an escape to Split Apple Retreat. Located on the waterfront of Abel Tasman National Park, this exclusive luxury lodge has been designed with wellness and healthy living at its core, boasting a peaceful and harmonious environment that will leave you both rejuvenated and totally relaxed. 

Featuring only three luxurious suites, this exclusive retreat will allow you to unwind and pamper yourself while enjoying state of the art facilities, a healthy daily gourmet menu and a full range of treatments and therapies surrounded by some of the island’s most breath-taking scenery of the Abel Tasman National Park. 

Your days can be spent lounging around the salt water infinity swimming pool that overlooks the serene Tasman Sea and the pristine sandy beaches that sit below. The property boasts two private paths down to two golden beaches where you can explore its waterfront by foot on a romantic stroll or relax with a private picnic for an idyllic lunch. You may also wish to take a visit to the famous 120 million year old Spilt Apple Rock, after which the retreat is named. 

For the adventurous there are opportunities to double sea kayak, for a view of the granite cliffs from the clear waters of the Tasman Sea, take a sailing trip out for a day of dolphin spotting or a swim with the seals. For an exclusive day out, take a helicopter ride to one of the nearby remote and inaccessible beaches for a relaxing day by the pristine shoreline completely by yourselves. 

For those who simply wish to enjoy the harmony of the retreat, indulge in daily massages and luxurious treatments or lie back and relax in the screening room, complete with 8 reclining leather seats that have been designed to offer a high-tech meditation experience. In the evenings this high tech room can also be used to watch a large selection of movies from the retreat’s extensive DVD collection. Other spa facilities include an infrared sauna, steam room and an outdoor spa pool with views over the tranquil sea.

Guests at Split Apple will also benefit from gourmet meals cooked in-house by the trained chef who has created a delectable menu that fuses the best of Asian and Mediterranean styles, using ingredients that produce healthy meals that are both nutritious, tasty and benefit your wellness and longevity. Should you desire to prepare some of your own delicious meals, a cooking lesson with the in-house chef can be arranged who will guide you through preparing a number of dishes.
