Luxury Holidays At Split Apple Retreat

This is a luxury boutique retreat with a difference. Here, you'll be nurtured with outstanding hospitality, nutritious and delicious gourmet food, a range of relaxing and stress-busting activities, and a beautiful setting. Split Apple Retreat, named after the Split Apple Rock which rises from the sea in the Abel Tasman National Park, is a tranquil place, just a few minutes from the Park. It offers amazing ocean views from each of the three guest suites, which also feature flat-screen television with Apple TV, wireless internet, telephone, motorised blinds and two private decks. The largest suite is spread across two levels and has a separate lounge. With interiors that boast an impressive art and antique collection, guests will enjoy the views both inside and out. Due to the popularity of the resort, we recommend booking more than six months in advance. The entire property can also be booked exclusively by one party, so is ideal for a family gathering. Children over twelve years of age are welcome.

Property Highlights:expand_more
Luxury Beach

Nestled on the edge of the Abel Tasman National Park, Split Apple Retreat is an alternative choice for a tranquil and beautiful beach getaway. Scenic, private paths lead to two golden beaches, one of which boasts the famous 120-million year old Split Apple Rock, after which the retreat was named. Head out onto the sparkling waters by sail-boat or kayak, keeping your eyes peeled for Blue penguins, cheeky dolphins, or even Orcas. For mesmerising views of the most beautiful part of New Zealand, enjoy an awe-inspiring horse ride along the pristine sand.

Spa & Wellness

Every aspect of the retreat - from its tranquil location to its nutritious cuisine - revolves around wellness, relaxation and sensory pleasure. The luxurious Japanese spa is at the centre of this focus, boasting breathtaking views over the Abel Tasman National Park. The extensive therapy menu includes deep tissue and Thai massages, acupuncture and aromatherapy - each of which are seen as vital tools in easing stress and boosting the immune system. Private yoga and fitness sessions are available in the beautiful rose garden's pavilion, whilst the salt-water infinity pool, steam-room and sauna continue your journey of calm.

In Addition

Take a water-taxi from the beach at Split Apple Rock and head towards Abel Tasman National Park for rainforest walks, lagoon swimming and enjoy incredible nature experiences. The park is also famous for its pods of dolphins, seals and penguins. Guests can enjoy boat trips and fishing, beach picnics, or even take to the sky with a scenic helicopter trip. There is also the town of Nelson, located an hour away, which is a nice place to explore.
