This spectacular freehold property is currently an eco-themed functions venue, in a world-class setting, where guests are treated to an immersive ‘all-inclusive’ experience. While there are endless possibilities for River Ridge Retreat, the current owners have built a substantial business, based around hosting weddings. Defying the odds in the wake of Covid-19, this wedding season has been one of the most successful to date, and there are already forward bookings approaching $2M.

The vendors are at now a stage in their lives where it is time to move on, and pass the baton to another similarly passionate and visionary owner. With many of the key elements already in place, this is your chance to create something truly special! Or, it could be a very special 'bolt-hole', in one of the safest, most beautiful and peaceful parts of the world!

This should also be of particular interest, to an international buyer, because it may be exempt from the current Overseas Investment Act (OIA); meaning that an overseas buyer could purchase it relatively easily.

River Ridge Retreat resonates peace and tranquility, occupying a secluded natural amphitheatre, of approx. 2.73ha (6.7 acres), in The Catlins, approx. 90minutes drive from Dunedin Airport. The beautifully groomed grounds are bounded by the crystal clear, trout-filled, Catlins River, with a backdrop of rugged native bush-covered hills, stunning ridges, and the melodic symphony of abundant birdlife.

The Catlins is a spectacular, unspoiled region, in the South Island of New Zealand, with enthralling natural landscapes and extraordinary wildlife. It boasts a rugged beauty and untouched quality that is magnetic. Here you’ll find a world of native forests fringed by high cliffs, deserted sandy beaches, sparkling bays, cascading waterfalls, hidden lakes, blowholes, caves, picturesque lighthouses and even a petrified forest. These environments are home to an array of fauna, from native birds, to seals, sea lions, dolphins, and penguins.

The substantial on-site improvements include a large, modern rustic style functions room with fully equipped commercial kitchen, chiller and bar area. The Retreat can sleep up to 80 people in comfort, in a mixture of modern self-contained units, shared facilities, and private rooms. The expansive grounds have scope for glamping and tent options if required.

Currently presented as an idyllic setting for functions such as weddings, conferences, festivals, retreat or special events, there are many options for this unique property. One of those options is to create an international standard Health & Wellness and/or Eco-Tourism Retreat. But, as a visionary buyer, you can make this your own!

It is expected that the new owners will suitably appreciate this outstanding, rugged region; and have the vision, passion and motivation to realise the potential of this stunning property.

Expressions of interest are invited from serious buyers.
