Barn’s burnt down—now I can see the moon

A member of Healing Hotels of the World

Shou Sugi Ban House is an open invitation to explore, enjoy, learn and transform. To appreciate the beauty and healing power of nature. To enjoy a passion for life grounded in curiosity. It is a place for serenity and simplicity. Inspired by a spirit of openness and exploration, Shou Sugi Ban House offers spa, nutrition, fitness and meditation experiences in a holistic, educational setting. We welcome diverse points of view and are especially galvanized by the strength of women and the wisdom of community.  Discreetly luxurious, grounded in common-sense sustainability and a deep love for raw natural beauty, Shou Sugi Ban House is an intimate integrative wellness retreat. We draw on practices from the world’s great wisdom traditions and wherever curiosity leads. Whether an experience is scientific or spiritual, we are dedicated to discovering those that have real value and sharing them in a genuine way.
