Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The retreat is absolutely beautiful, located just out of Glenorchy with the most spectacular views. The rooms and common areas are lovely, and the spa is gorgeous.

The retreats changed all the time, so pick your passion (Pilates, food, writing, yoga etc). Or just go and give something new a go..... The hikes are to lovely locations and can be adapted to any level of fitness.

The food is so good, it is all plant based, but I can't stress how good it is.

The staff are kind, caring and make sure every need is met, nothing is too hard.

It is fine to go alone. The group will make you feel welcome. The daily massages are great too!

I did the 6 day retreat recently and it was absolutely transformational - mind, body and spirit. The program is highly immersive and incredibly well tuned and run by experts - physios, masseuses, skilled yoga and Pilates teachers, nutritionists etc who all made me feel truly cared for. The food was extraordinary - real fine dining and all optimised for nutrition. Every meal was anticipated with bated breath by our group. The environment was stonkingly beautiful…especially the spa, with 360 degree views of soaring mountains and lakes. I feel brilliant…it was worth every penny.

Aro Ha has been on my list of 'to do' for a couple of years and I'm glad that the stars aligned and I made it there this January. This was my first ever proper retreat and I have to say it was world class. Everything was so well thought of, that it flowed with such ease. It is the perfect balance of mindfulness, health, fitness and quietness - which we all so need after 2020. The food is also amazing, even though I'm not vegan it was delicious and I found I had the same, if not more energy than I would normally. The place itself is out of this world, everywhere from my bedroom to the spa to our dining room had the most amazing view. Waking up to the sound of tibetan bells chiming is something I will miss. Has definitely left a positive mark in my life with a gentle awakening of how one can improve and be the best versions of ourselves. Highly recommend it - and very comfy beds!

My 6-days wellness retreat at Aro Ha was an absolute blast! The location is absolutely stunning. The program - including yoga, hikes, detox, massages, wellness tips and vegan food - is finely calibrated. It has created a transformational shift in just 5 days. And I met some amazing people.
The team/staff are experienced, knowledgeable, attentive and kind. If you have a chance to go, do it. You will not regret it. Unforgettable!

A week at Aro Ha made me feel alive, invigorated, with a magnificent lightness of head, soul and limb. The experience lifted the fog in my brain and everything in life felt easier and simpler when I came home. My eyes and skin looked clearer, dark circles banished, body trimmed ... but the real joy was the way I felt ... much more than the fact that I looked healthier.

I am sleeping better, more energised, have fewer aches, feel calmer, more relaxed and in a great mindset to appreciate life.

The mindfulness practice is invaluable and has given me the tools to sustain this state.

Everyone at Aro-Ha is wonderful ... the retreat leaders, chefs, yoga instructors, hiking guides, masseuses... they are all warm, kind, supportive people who are passionate about improving the lives of everyone they encounter.

This place is truly unique and it is life changing. If you have an opportunity to spend time here then immerse yourself fully in the experience and go for SEVEN days if you can.

Aro Ha was an experience that completely surpassed every expectation I had. The location is awe inspiring and helps instill tranquility and humility due to its magnificence. The architecture and built environment is completely sympathetic to its surrounds, as well as being seriously tasteful. The staff, without exception, complete the experience.

This is a superb place which is beautifully designed and eco friendly. 360 degree views of the lake and surrounding mountains from every room. This is a wellness retreat encapulating mind, body and spirit. The food is beautiful and nutritious and designed to provide a full detox.The rooms are purposely designed and lovely. The location of this property is one of the best outlooks I have ever experienced, sublime. All meals are catered to individual needs, the food was incredible. The staff friendly and very energetic.

I've been home from Aro Ha for one week and still think about my experience there every day. From the moment you are collected you feel genuinely cared for. That's a rare treat in itself when we are so busy looking after everyone else's needs and putting ourselves last. At Aro Ha you enter a bubble of total care; total indulgence and total peacefulness. There are no decisions to make along the way and all the staff show amazing generosity of spirit in everything they do. The food is beyond delicious and, whilst it is Vegan and plant based, you don't miss anything. Every meal is presented like a work of art. What I especially loved about Aro Ha (unique in any destination) is the open door policy that exists. You can wander anywhere and the staff are always open for a chat. Special thanks to Sue the gardener who showed me around the gardens. I didn't lose much weight but if you are blessed enough to afford this very special experience, don't go to lose anything, go to find more of who you are.

Four nights at Aro-Ha was just not enough!

Everything about this retreat is exceptional.

The location is nothing but spectacular and took my breathe away daily.

Every yoga class is different and catered to all levels, challenging hikes daily with the most breathtaking scenery, massages were the perfect way to end the day and I looked forward to that daily....again every masseause was different and amazing.

Vegan food was so delicious and I wish I could cook all those dishes!

Rooms, beds, bathrooms were simple, beautiful, clean, comfortable...the most comfortable beds, pillows and towels.

Staff were nothing but exceptional...there are too many to mention but special thank you to Paula, Damian, Ben, Vickie and Georgie for making this experience so very memorable.

I cannot fault Aro-Ha and cannot wait to return.
