Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat
Located in the lush Tallebudgera Valley, this wellness getaway go-to is as lavish as they come.
A wellness retreat in a scenic setting away from the hustle and bustle? Sounds dreamy. Queensland-based wellness haven Gwinganna does luxury a bit differently; it asks guests to leave indulgent food and booze behind in favour of spa therapies, organic meals, a yoga retreat and more health-focussed activities. And no, this is not the premise for Nine Perfect Strangers — far from it.
The luxury design of the facilities, superior skill of the staff, and lush surrounding greenery ensure guests relax and unwind in whichever way suits them. If you're looking for a quick escape to the tropical oasis, you can opt for the Wellness Weekend Retreat package which covers two nights, all your organic meals, a wellness seminar and range of activities including Qi Gong. Those wanting a full cleanse from the daily grind can sign up for Gwinganna's signature seven-night where you'll get all of the above, plus multiple massages, a facial, evening meditation sessions and more. Fancy something in-between? Gwinganna also offers three-, four- and five-night packages.
