YHA Raglan Group Accommodation


YHA Raglan, Solscape offers a variety of unique accommodation options for groups in our eco haven nestled at the base of Mt Karioi. We have an indoor meeting/workshop venue, outdoor gathering locations, a café / catering facility, and the ability to include activities from educational guided eco tours to ‘full-on adrenaline’. Warm, welcoming and professional staff are always on hand to help.

Meeting Room

If you are looking for an indoor space for workshops, activities, or meetings, Solscape can offer you a comfortable, light and airy room upstairs in our reception building with awe inspiring views out to the Tasman Sea and West Coast landscape. Equipment such as moveable whiteboard and data projector are provided, plus a complimentary hot drink station on request.

“Wow! You guys have something special going on there! We appreciated your warm, caring, kind hospitality and were so grateful that so many options were available to us.” – Helen, The Nest Yoga Retreats


Solscape can provide your group with a truly memorable dining experience. Specialising in plant-based cuisine, organic and locally sourced where possible, we grow organic produce in our gardens to provide your group with the wholesome experience and nourishment of ‘straight from the garden to your plate'. Catering to any budget, any or all daily meals, the kitchen team brings great food to the table in a stunning location.


Solscape offers a range of activities. Take a surf lesson in world class breaks, try yoga, climb Mt Karioi, get your hands and feet dirty making earth bricks, kayak the beautiful Whaingaroa harbour, ride horses on Ruapuke beach, get vertical with Rock Climbing, go underground in a caving adventure, or lay flat out on a massage table or just enjoy a good book in a shady hammock. Whatever lights your people’s fire, Solscape would love to make it happen.


Free WiFi is available at our main building, housing our reception, communal lounge, and cafe. Around the accommodations and elsewhere onsite, and for group members access is $5 for 24 hours.
