Heal and nurture your body, mind, heart and spirit in an oasis of tranquillity at Waimana Spa, a five minute bush walk from Mana Retreat Centre. Embraced by mountain, bush and sea, you can delight in the silence broken only by the sound of wind in the trees, birdsong and the ringing of the bells from Tara Sanctuary.
Our bodies often get forgotten in our fast-paced world until the aches and pains call out for attention. Come home to your body and experience the benefits, healing and pleasure of therapeutic touch. Waimana Spa offers a range of professional treatments.
If you are staying at Mana or visiting the Coromandel you can book in to enjoy a one-to-two hour soothing and rejuvenating therapeutic treatment of your choice. Alternatively, if you have been dreaming of a weekend retreat, you can stay at one of Waimana’s self-contained units and enjoy the benefits of a two-day integrated and personalised health and wellness programme.
There is the option of self-catering (vegetarian), or enjoying the gourmet vegetarian meals prepared at Mana Retreat Centre.
Spa Waimana is the perfect escape, combining spectacular views and beautiful bush walks, sauna, hot pool and swimming facilities, with the opportunity to indulge in a range of treatments for enhanced health and well-being.
