Well, I arrived at the gate of a secluded retreat in the Tallebudgera valley hinterland full of anticipation. This was not a cheap escape but I knew I needed help to get my run down body feeling healthy again. I was unsure what the 7 day detox program was all about and was soon rapidly enlightened when I was told...

I have just return from a 5 day visit to Gwinganna. From the moment the airport transfer bus slowly climbed the mountain to the rainforest above and closed the gate once we entered the property I gave a deep breath and thought here I am in my own little world. What a world it was. It was one of the...

I attended this detox 7 day program mainly to focus on what it takes to be healthy and in tune with myself again. It was the best investment I could make. I "dragged" my husband with me as it was part of a longer holiday we had planned and I am so glad I did (it could have gone either...

I was here a year ago and found Gwinganna a magic place to be so booked again. Before going this time I read some recent TripAdvisor reviews and wondered if the standard might have slipped as there were some negatives. I am pleased to say it was everything I hoped for and more. One review mentioned "boot camp". I fail...

Where to begin... villa was gorgeous with superb views over the bush & trees to the ocean. Food was just sublime. The practitioners are some of the very best. Talks, walks & activities are inspiring. If you need time away, time to nourish & be nurtured then look no further, Gwinganna is paradise on earth.

Amazing. This place was the best. I was there in the tropical storm (885mm of rain in 26 hours) and they still kept everything going. I went there stressed and totally depleted and did the 7 day detox. It has changed my life. Staff and food and activities were amazing. You get all sorts of options of things you want...

I just got back from a seven-day detox retreat at Gwinganna. I just wanted a week away at the spa, but I got so much more. Beautiful hikes, insightful seminars, healthy foods, novel exercise classes (drums on fire and tribal), daily meditations and an overall feeling of being rested and relaxed. During our stay ex-cyclone Debbie poured over 800mm of...
