Accommodation for Backpackers in our Retreat Centre

Backpacking at Kawai Purapura

The really wonderful thing about backpacking at Kawai Purapura is when you step out of your room, a world of bush, parade of garden and expanse of lawn opens up.  This is something that will definitely not go unnoticed during your stay.  The combination of this experience and the low price makes it a superb place to stay during your journey.

Kawai Purapura is a place of flexibility. Visitors have the option of one, two, or three people per room for real economy. Meals can be provided, or you are welcome to organise your own, in our self-catering vegetarian kitchen. We have many community activities, for example; yoga, chanting, dancing, which you are sure to enjoy and become a part of. All of this will help you to meet new, like-minded, people many of whom have come from all over the world. This, in turn, adds more to your experience here at Kawai Purapura. Something, like the natural environment, that you will take with you long after you arrive home, wherever that may be.
