Swimming Pool, Sauna, Spa, Yoga, Meditation & Massage

Huntington Stables Retreat provides a wonderful setting for a romantic or special occasion such as a honeymoon, anniversary, birthday celebration, couple's getaway, mother & daughter break, or purely to relax & re-energise.  With a beautiful on-site yoga space & meditation area, & with ready access to excellent massage, facial & wellness practitioners, it presents a wonderful option for a girl's weekend, bridal party event, or special 'group retreat'. The quiet setting also makes it the ideal environment for writers & other artists.  While we have four rooms to fit different budgets, we are fortunate to live right next door to fabulous Maungakawa Villa!  This beautiful property has two luxury rooms available (one with a private spa pool) should you need them.
