Bryant Retreat for Woman

The Bryant Retreat is for women feeling worn out, run down or exhausted and who simply need some time out for complete rest and relaxation. There are no wellbeing therapies or services offered – just good old-fashioned aroha (care) and nutritious kai (food) in a relaxing and peaceful sea-side environment.

The Retreat is not a health or disability service and cannot provide medical or mental health treatment or support. Guests must be medically and mentally well enough to take care of their own day to day needs. The retreat is not suitable for women who:

  • have mental health issues that are not controlled/stable and need mental health management or supervision
  • are dependent/withdrawing from drugs, alcohol, or other substances
  • need wheelchair access or help to move, wash, toilet, dress or eat
  • have bandages/dressings that must be professionally applied or need help to use medical equipment or take medication
  • have difficulty relating to others and/or are uncooperative/unpredictable
  • have specific food allergies - we can only cater for diabetic, vegetarian, dairy/gluten intolerant diets (not coeliac disease)
