Diamond Harbour is an untouched paradise

Diamond Harbour & Excursions

Diamond Harbour is an untouched paradise and believe me I have travelled the world and witnessed so much development and changes but in 17 years this place is still sublime with very little change. Banks Peninsular is one of the most beautiful parts of New Zealand, volcanic, untouched, wild and Diamond Harbour has an ocean that sparkles like diamonds.

My Ayurveda doctor said to go ahead and do the detox at my place because the peace and quiet is so instrumental in a true panchakarma retreat.

Go to http://www.diamondharbour.info/ and see what’s on offer in our secluded paradise just 45 mins from Christchurch airport and city and 10 mins by ferry from Lyttelton. The coastal walks are gorgeous if you want to lose the 5 kilos many of the clients lose in the detox.

Maybe you want to have a kayak ride in the bay https://diamondharbour.info/attractions/. Maybe you would like to visit one of the best growers markets by ferry in Lyttelton on Saturday or go up the gondola or just sit in the gorgeous bean bags on the deck watching the world go by. You won’t be bored and there is also these amazing excursions if we have time.

The Elixir of Well Being!

Paru is a true spirit and healer. From the moment i was welcomed to Shunyata looking over the beautiful Diamond Harbour i felt inspired. I spent 5 days and did not want to leave. We shared delicious healthy food that differed each day, yoga on the sun filled deck each morning, massage and my favourite.. the Ozone Sauna! What a treat!

Paru worked constantly with me in such a positive way that i can honestly say that i have never felt so good in mind, body and spirit. It was a real journey of discovery. I was made to feel very special.

We all deserve time at Shunyata.

Castle Hill

Labelled as the 7th highest energy vortex in the world, 1-1/2 hrs away. Castle Hill is a very special place with great significance to the Waitaha and the Maori people. It is named Kura Tahiti which means ‘treasure from afar’ A hidden place, the landscape of giant stone, scattered Stonehenge, what Barry Brailsford describes as a sacred nest of stones, a place even the Dalai Lama has talked of as an important energy centre for the earth. Having recently returned from Machu Pichu, Paru swears that this place has similar energy without the tourist crowds.

Just wander through the amazing rock formation and feel the energy and echo of this amazing place. Includes a picnic lunch and can include a dinner out.


1 1/4 hours on the other side of the Peninsular –This is a true adventure excursion. We drive the stunning cliffs and rawness of the peninsular and arrive down in my other favourite hideaway Pigeon Bay – where we face our fears with a swing over the ocean and a picnic lunch on the jetty – then on to stunning Akaroa where you can wander the main street and then maybe stopping on a wild beach on return – shop, eat drink in this gorgeous, famous French village.

Make this year your best one yet as you reset your body’s natural systems in an away-from-it-all sanctuary that will leave you fully recharged and renewed – the best Health, Wellness, Detox & Couples Retreat & Day Spa in New Zealand
