If you're a fan of former Blackstick Gemma McCaw's healthy lifestyle, you may want to book a spot at her new luxury venture.

McCaw will be hosting her first-ever Women's Wellness retreat alongside Dr Sarah Anticich at the stunning Kauri Cliffs' Lodge in Northland this November.

The three-time Olympian is excited to welcome her guests on a three-day journey of wellness, relaxation and learning. McCaw has the qualifications to teach, with a diploma in positive psychology and wellbeing and also a degree in sport and exercise science.

McCaw's Woman's Day column about all things health and wellness, garnered her plenty of fans throughout the country. She also has on the wellness coaching team former Blackstick Brooke Neil, who specialises in balance running and Yin style yoga.


Anticich is a clinical psychologist and specialist in anxiety prevention and wellbeing.

The retreat has plenty of mindful activities, including mindful bushwalks, gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinners, spa treatments, mountain biking, golf and after-dinner fire chats.

Mystery surrounds the cost of the three-day luxury retreat, however, the cost of a night at one of Kauri Cliffs' family suites is usually around $3000.

We reckon if McCaw's husband, former All Black captain Richie is on hand to chopper guests from Kerikeri airport, the experience would be worth double.
