Retreat… Restart…

Your personal Nutritional Getaway.

This fulfilling three-night nutritional discovery getaway enables you to restart life again after lockdown.

Our Nutritional getaway combines boutique bed and breakfast accommodation with assessments, recommendations and activities tailored to you, courtesy of fully trained Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Heather.

The picturesque countryside oasis that is Ruapehu Country Lodge has been owned and operated by Heather and Peter for seven years. After seeing purposeful, healthy lifestyles be held back by the pandemic and the ongoing effects of living in lockdown, Heather decided to put her background in nutrition and fitness to work by offering customised nutritional discovery getaways set amidst the fresh mountain air of the central plateau. Ruapehu Country Lodge nutritional discovery getaways are designed to help guests establish new health habits and set goals to leave them feeling empowered and energised.
