“Aro Hā will bring people together to learn about nature, the world, and ultimately about themselves.  Aro Hā models a transitional path toward a regenerative relationship with our planet. We’ve done our best to design a place that meets the needs of the present without compromising our future.”
Damian Chaparro, Aro Hā Partner

The vision is Zen inspired luxury, where the luxury comes from intelligent design, function of space, and exceptional programming, rather than opulence or excess.

Never before have all these elements been combined to provide such a rich guest experience. The facility is designed for group interaction.  Our ancestors shared spaces.  They moved together.  They ate together.  They played together, and so do we.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

I'm having a baby in October and want to focus my practice so I can be present and calm! Laine

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
