Welcome to Waihōanga
celebrate, escape, work, play, bring your friends, be yourself
Located on New Zealand’s Kapiti coast, just an hour’s drive from Wellington and Palmerston North, the Waihōanga River Lodge and Retreat is ideal for building, nurturing or celebrating with your community. Whether you want to organise a family party, a work retreat, workshop or conference, a wedding, a community hui, or a yoga, meditation or singing retreat, we have accommodation options to suit your needs.
“I love the warmth, beauty and character of the Waihōanga Centre. Its location, nestled right in the Otaki Gorge, is spectacular. I’ve been to weddings, workshops and weekend retreats there and know it’s a place I will keep coming back to for many years!”
– Skye Chadwick, returning guest
