This is more than a quick fix.  Our Sage & Soul PLANT BASED  is a detox, cleanse & lifestyle reset package designed for long term benefits.  The aim of this experience is to spark changes that allow you to reconnect more fully and deeply to your bodies innate knowledge & wisdom.  Meaning you can make more intuitive decisions to be the best version of you and build a firm resolve to carry this forward.

  1. Before you arrive - PREPARE 

Upon booking your retreat we provide you with detailed information on how to best prepare with the Sage & Soul PLANT Preparation Guide.  Potent dietary and lifestyle guidelines are designed with great care to allow you to reap the maximum rewards of your investment in yourself and your future.  This includes details of great food to integrate and also how to use them as a part of our Sage & Soul 7 Day Plant Based Eating Plan.  This eating plan comes with a shopping list and includes some of our favourite tried and true retreat recipes.  Having both these options will give you a choice of what fits best with your timetable and lifestyle.  Your preparation will also be supported with the option of a zoom consultation prior to your arrival where we will go through an “Energy Audit” to help you define your goals and set your intentions and decide on your optimal lifestyle preparations.   


  1. Stay - IMMERSE

Check into the award winning Cape South Country Estate & Wellness Retreat from 3pm.  This is time for you to step out of your day to day routines in order to dedicate yourself to yourself. To take stock and consciously create your future.  You will be welcomed to the oasis of Cape South as the perfect venue to reboot body, mind and soul.

Your dietary supplies will be ready for you.  A freshly prepared organic plant based cleanse & range of herbal teas with full instructions. Breakfast - house granola & seasonal fruit with coconut yogurt plus hemp mylk. Lunch - a substantial seasonal smoothie. Dinner - nutrient dense soup…  plus a Tumeric & Ginger super  tonic shot (Jamu) and Ayurvedic Almond and saffron cleanser (Ojas). 

There is an option to conclude your retreat moving to a juice fast for your last couple of days depending on how your cleanse is progressing or you can choose to juice fast the whole retreat.  

You will be guided to follow a 16/8 intermittent fasting schedule to maximise the detoxification benefits of the cleanse. 

In addition to this you have a range of teas to support digestion and cleansing. We also give you the option to consider introducing an “intermittent fasting” element to the cleanse using a 16/8 method - ie starting your eating from 10am and finishing by 6pm. 

You will enjoy full use of the Cape South facilities that are perfect for supporting your journey. The rejuvenating mineral pool, infrared sauna (detox rock star), spa, gym, trampoline (for that extra bounce) and beautiful peaceful grounds in the coastal hinterland of the beautiful Hawkes Bay. 

A daily morning gentle stretch and flow class is included as well as wellness workshops and an evening meditation and reflection to support your journey.  

The extensive  “Sage & Soul Mind Body Guide” will be ready for you to use at your leisure during your stay.   Including: journal prompts, “The Gratitude 7 Day Experience” Booklet, with ample resources for reflection.  We are here to help you deepen into your experience.  With Waimarma beach just 8 minutes away the chance of bathing in the sea as a part of your experience is very accessible.  


  1. Post Cleanse - SUSTAIN 

Ease your way back into every day life.  Plan to consume a mostly plant based diet for the first few days and then transition into a well-balanced diet; one free of refined & processed foods. We encourage you to follow the pre cleanse guidelines staying well hydrated and allow your body to signal you as to what it needs to be at its optimum.  To support you with this we will gift you a copy of a 14 day Sage & Soul Plant Based Eating Plan with easy to follow delicious recipes and shopping lists.  

Plan to take the elements of your cleanse that resonated with you back into your daily routines – be it the nutrition or the practices or better still a combination of both.

Cape South is an award winning stunning, totally unique luxury retreat located only 8 minutes from Waimarama Beach, 20 minutes from Havelock North or just 40 minutes from Napier Airport.  The gracious 6 ensuite bedroom French Colonial style homestead & gorgeous 2 bedroom self contained cottage is situated on 16 acres of grounds and gardens with expansive views of the coastal hinterland.   Retreat facilities include a mineral pool, gym, spa, infrared sauna, yoga studio, trampoline, apothecary, medicinal herb and permaculture vegetable gardens.  The venue offers the ultimate luxury escape for a true exploration of wellness.



We are constantly being exposed to potential stressors.  Toxins through the air we breathe, products we use, information we hear and read, pesticides in the food we eat & additives in the water we drink.  To reset the body it is helpful to break the cycle of any dependence on refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and excess caffeine and alcohol.  A PLANT cleanse is the perfect way to do just that.  Give your digestive system a break, eliminate toxins and improve your energy. This coupled with our luxury setting and a leading edge mind body programme & dietary guides before and after.  You are in good hands.   Clear the mind clutter and set the stage for sustainable self care with courage and ease. 



The days leading up to your cleanse allow you to prime your body and mind, setting the scene for a successful detox. In order to properly prepare it is necessary to pare back your diet by eliminating foods/ substances that are hard to digest or toxic.  The length of time you need to prepare for your cleanse will be guided by your current diet and lifestyle and making this commitment is important to help you avoid unpleasant cleanse side effects.  We will send you detailed guidelines including troubleshooting and top tips & offer support for this upon booking your retreat.

Organic fruits and veges are better for you. They are grown without synthetic insecticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers.  They’re also better for the earth.  It’s not just about being ‘chemical free’. It’s a whole systems approach designed to be more sustainable, emphasizng conservation and reducing pollutants. Soil. Plants. Animals. Food. People. Environment. The whole cycle. Aside from being better for you and the earth, organic fruit & vege are quite simply more delicious and more nutritious. Every cell is an unadulterated flavor bomb.
