Surround yourself with pure tranquillity in one of the South Island’s most pristine spots, boasting breath-taking sea views and bursting with native wildlife. Welcome to Upepo - The Retreat.

From the Swahili word meaning to breath or flow, Upepo - The Retreat seeks to bring peace and serenity to your West Coast getaway as you immerse yourself in the natural beauty around you.

Enjoy the privacy of your own detached, self-contained studio room, where the only thing superior to the award-winning gardens is the warm hospitality of your host as and when you’d like it.

A cosy evening might be just the ticket after an adventurous day on the walking and cycle trails. Prepare meals in the kitchenette, before retiring for the evening in your comfy queen size bed.

On those warm summer days, take your living outdoors to your private deck where views of the garden and a soundtrack of native birdsong are sure to plunge you into a state of bliss.

Upepo - The Retreat is located in stunning Cape Foulwind, just 12 minutes from the township of Westport, and 10 minutes from the airport.

Close to the end of Old Ghost Road, this spot is a great launch pad for exploring this exquisite part of the West Coast. Cycle the completed section of the Kawatiri Coastal Trail, or take a stroll on the Cape Foulwind Walkway to catch a glimpse of native New Zealand fur seals as they lounge about on the rocks.

If you fancy winding down with something a little bit special at the end of the day, there’s a massage therapist just down the road, as well as a great pub for a bite!

Take a deep breath and find sublime serenity, here at Upepo - The Retreat.
