914 Takaro Rd., Te Anau, 9640, New Zealand

 

There’s no shortage of wilderness retreats in New Zealand, but having one to yourself is the ultimate fantasy. Enter Takaro Lodge, a former academy turned private escape in the middle of Fiordland’s Snowdon Forest, on the southwestern edge of the South Island. Ideal for groups of 10 to 20—and more often, corporate retreats—the property comprises five green-roofed eco-lodges, each of which contains two suites. Owner Aiping Wang Fulepp, a master in the ancient Chinese art of healing, has an influential presence: guests can choose from daily relaxation classes or her Life Consultancy trainings, or opt for more traditional New Zealand pursuits, from hiking the Upekerora Valley to horseback riding through the area’s dramatic Lord of the Rings territory.
