Looking for a suitable location to organise your next retreat? Kahere Retreat is the perfect location to hold your next workshop. Whether it’s a yoga, meditation, breathwork, holistic or spiritual retreat, we are happy to accommodate you.

With five chalets, each sleeping 3-4 guests (1 queen and 2 singles), it’s ideal for small intimate groups, book all five and enjoy complete privacy during your time with us. Lay your yoga mats out on the lawn, breathe in the fresh mountain air and listen to the chorus of birdsong as you do your morning sun salutations.

If you require catering, we can put you in touch with local suppliers who will be happy to meet your needs.
