Rarotongan School Holiday Retreat


Teachers' we know you've been working hard through the school term and we want to reward you for it.
We know it is impossible to get away during the school term
That's why we're bringing you a Rarotongan school holiday retreat on the tropical island of Rarotonga during the school holidays!
No more parents, no more curriculum, just a week of relaxation with other teachers.
All you need to do is show up (of course... you're a teacher!) Put away your textbooks and break out the cocktails on our tropical island retreat
Who wants to unwind, restore & explore in Rarotonga?




Our "Rarotongan School Holiday Tropical Island Retreat"

will give you time and space to relax, unwind and restore, and also the opportunity to connect and share life experiences with other like-minded ladies over the age of 40 on the tropical island of Rarotonga

Let's escape the New Zealand winter and spend 7 nights in the warm sunshine with tropical breezes

 Rarotonga is surrounded by the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean and is only a 32km round trip around the island with its beaches, volcanic peaks, aquamarine coastal lagoon, reefs (perfect for snorkelling), friendly locals, stunning sunrises, and sunsets

Relax with your book by one of our two private pools or feel the sand between your toes as you listen to the waves lapping the shore with an island breeze on your face, If the beach isn't your thing, there is no need to stress as there are plenty of other things to do!

We are staying in private villas with two private pools only 850 meters from the world-famous Muri Beach and Lagoon renowned for its safe swimming, snorkelling, and paddleboarding (SUP) close to local restaurants and we have our own transportation available for our group activities.


Spaces on this retreat are limited to 10 extraordinary ladies wanting a break in the NZ school holidays

Are you in??

I will meet you at the airport upon arrival and will send an information pack upon booking.

During our holiday retreat, you are under no obligation to do any activities.  If you want to lie by the pool all day and drink cocktails you are most welcome to and we can meet up for lunch or dinner later. Or if you're keen on exploring more of Rarotonga, know that you don't have to be alone.

In our downtime, and there is lots of it, I intend to do lots of water-based activities such as snorkelling with turtles and hope to get in a fun scuba dive, have a go at Stand-Up paddleboarding, kayaking & of course swimming in the turquoise waters around the colourful reef and getting to know the locals!

My goal with this retreat is to ensure that all women have an amazing time, meet new friends and experience the magic and culture of Rarotonga within a safe and fun, and at times spontaneous environment. There will be a maximum of 8-10 ladies on this trip as I believe a smaller group leads to stronger connections with each other.

I will organize all the day-to-day planning for you  All you have to do is turn up and enjoy!


So what are you waiting for??  Harness your own magic and let's go!


This Rarotongan School Holiday Tropical Island Retreat has been purposefully designed to allow you to truly connect with yourself and other like-minded mature ladies and experience those spontaneous magic moments that happen through travelling!
