Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa – for Spa Therapies and Treatments

The most transformational day spa in Christchurch

The Best Spa Day in Christchurch

Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa is located right on the ocean, 10 mins by ferry from Lyttelton, providing a rejuvenating sanctuary. The perfect setting for a blissful, pampering day away from it all. Recently renovated, Shunyata Retreat and Day Spa is unique in providing personal one-on-one attention. Enjoy a day of pampering spa therapies without having to watch the clock. Often there is also an emotional clearing that takes place while at Shunyata as your body, mind, and soul re-balance. We use beautiful pure high vibrancy essential oils which are creating miracles in healing those aches and pains that can’t seem to shift. It truly is unique, more than a massage, presence, consciousness, and deep healing.

The main difference between Shunyata and other day spas is the presence and deep healing – and the gorgeous ocean views.

From the moment you hop on the ferry from Lyttelton (we will meet you on the sunny side) and leave the city behind your day starts – it’s peaceful, sublime, pure stillness.
