Riverslea Retreat Centre is such a stunning, relaxing and calming sanctuary to escape to find some inner peace and inspiration..  It is a treasure trove in all seasons and there will be the cosiness of the open fires and freshness of the air to energise you in lots of different ways!  It is designed to maximise the views around you, so that you will feel at one with nature.  The sounds of the native birds surround you, while the Otaki river is only minutes walk away and will have you feeling relaxed and recharged in no time!
