Looking for a venue to hire for your workshop or seminar?
We offer five different indoor and three outdoor workshop spaces varying in size, character and charm. The spaces provide an ideal environment for retreat participants to pursue self-exploration, growth and re-discover personal peace and well-being.

Our smallest space seats 1-30 and our largest up to 150. In the warmer summer months we also have two additional outdoor tents to hire.

Some of our venues (Prema Lounge, Lotus and Kahikatea) are wheelchair accessible, please speak with us directly if you’d like to know more.

Free WiFi is available to retreat participants (our WiFi covers most of the indoor areas). Check out Kawai Purapura’s Centre Map.

We can foster smaller or bigger groups, take care of catering and help you with technical set up for your presentation.
