The Last Church in Āpiti is the ultimate escape to relax and discover the stunning Manawatū and we've recently been recognised by the NZ Herald as one of the top wellness retreats to visit in 2021.

Located in the quaint village of Āpiti, set in a valley at the base of the Ruahine Ranges, this renovated Sunday School is a cosy and quirky base to explore the ranges, glow worms, swimming holes, and more.

We have a roaring wood burner fire and an outdoor cast iron bath tub for you to enjoy.

The space
You'll be staying in the Sunday School, but you'll have access to enjoy the church, set up with original pews.
