Welcome to Aloha Life Retreat.  The home of Aloha Life retreats and trainings. The vision of a retreat space to anchor the sacred work of Kahuna in South Africa, was seeded in 2017 on a sabbatical to Hawaii. Discovering these beautiful gems, both Umzumbe on the KZN South Coast and our beach house, has been a real adventure in trust and surrender, which led us to find the perfect spot.  We are truly blessed and delighted to share this sacred space with you!


Our intention is for Aloha Life Retreat to be an anchor of Aloha and a place of refuge and healing in our country and for the planet at this time. We have created a safe, clear, beautiful and transformational space also available to other facilitators to use for their own workshops and retreats.  And lastly, a home for Ohana and our extended community to retreat to with family and friends.  Please have a look at our trainings and retreats tab for information on 2024 experiences offered by Aloha Life.  And please contact us if you are interested in renting our special space. 

About Umzumbe

The peaceful and secure village of Umzumbe is a jewel of the KZN coast, and a prime surfing and whale watching spot. A nature-lover’s paradise, dolphins are often seen playing in the big breakers and in the spring months, whales are prolific in the bay. Umzumbe's main beach boasts clean, clear water and is one of only six on the KZN coast that has achieved internationally recognised Blue Flag status. Shark nets protect the beach, which is a magnet for surfers and body-boarders, and watched over by in-season lifeguards. There are lovely walks through the small village as well as north along the beach to the river mouth, and south to Stebel Rocks, a famous angling spot on this coast. Umzumbe is a 90 minute drive south from Durban's King Shaka International Airport, and 90 km south of central Durban. There is a reliable shuttle service to and from the airport
