Volunteer for wellness, experience nature and hospitality at Lakeside Health and Wellness Resort

Welcome to the Lakeside Health and Wellness Resort, where we offer an opportunity for volunteers to support their own health and wellbeing while contributing to our mission of providing a peaceful and restorative environment for our guests. 


As a volunteer, you will have the chance to immerse yourself in nature, connect with like-minded individuals, and gain valuable experience in a hospitality and customer service environment devoted to health and wellness.


In exchange for your time and efforts, we offer a unique opportunity for you to reduce costs and gain access to our multi-award-winning facilities and programs. By volunteering with us, you will have the chance to participate in yoga classes, meditation sessions, and other wellness activities, as well as enjoy healthy meals prepared with locally sourced ingredients while staying on site in one of our chalets.


We are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment where volunteers can learn, grow, and contribute to a shared vision. Whether you are looking to work alongside and observe some of the most respected professionals in the industry, gain new skills, make meaningful connections, or simply take some time for self-care, we invite you to join our Whanau (family/team) of dedicated volunteers and make a positive impact on the lives of our guests and the world around us.


We are grateful for your willingness to volunteer your time and energy with us.
