Health Sanctuary

Set deep in the heart of nature Bethells Beach cottages offer a place of rest and refuge where you can reconnect with your inner most self.

From the comfort of our beautiful cottages, with sweeping views of the beach and beyond, we provide a range of holistic health treatments designed to rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit.

Using natural New Zealand products and incorporating the ancient healing arts, our treatments will leave you feeling alive and in tune with life.

Afterwards you may like to walk the beach and let nature bring you to a new level of stillness or you might prefer to soak in the Scandinavian hot tub and watch the sunset over the majestic Tasman Sea.

If you wish to extend the experience with an overnight stay, simply book a cottage for the night and retire to the privacy of your very own west coast sanctuary. You can fall asleep to the sounds of nature and wake feeling rested and refreshed.

If you’re already a guest at the cottages all treatments are available to you upon request, subject to availability of practitioners. Booking prior to arrival will help ensure you secure the treatment of your choice.
