Peel House

This fully restored Heritage cottage features two bedrooms, each with a queen bed and ensuite including a bath. There is a shared lounge area and private laundry, plus use of a buggy. Located near the Villas, the Peel House has stunning views over the Gold Coast.

Orchard suites

Built from beautiful Australian reclaimed timbers with soaring ceilings, natural stone bathrooms, timber floors and spacious verandahs, the Orchard Suites are nestled into Gwinganna’s orchard. Choices include a deluxe studio with ensuite featuring a verandah and sitting area, or a two bedroom suite with two bathrooms, shared relaxation lounge and verandah. These rooms are aptly named the Valencia, Mulberry, Olive, Macadamia and Lychee Suites.

Each day on retreat follows a similar structure though activities on each program can vary. Mornings begin watching the sun rise out of the ocean whilst practicing the ancient art of Qi Gong, a restorative moving meditation. A choice of hikes and walks before breakfast continue this ideal start to your day. The walks provide an opportunity to explore the 200 hectares of diverse bushland and rainforest which provide homes for inquisitive native animals and beautiful birds. Gwiganna offers 16 different walks, each one offering a different perspective. All paths, some gentle and others more challenging offer beautiful views of the surrounding valleys and hinterland and many showcase the magnificent Pacific Ocean.

After breakfast there is a variety of activities, using Gwinganna's own yin and yang approach to movement. The yin is the more inwardly focused activities such as yoga, Pilates and dance. Yang the more outwardly focused, increasing heart rate and intensity whilst still working around any limitations. Gwinganna encourages guests to assess how they feel each day and listen to their body and what it needs. A combination of both yin and yang activities can help ensure balance in the body’s biochemistry and provide the opportunity for quality movement patterns to be introduced.

Most mornings then end with one of their key wellness seminars, a differentiating feature of Gwinganna. The presenters are experienced, highly skilled and always ready to share the latest information in their field. Following the seminar, its time for a delicious organic lunch which is a more significant meal in a day at the retreat. Then afternoon Dreamtime begins.

During each Dreamtime, you can take advantage of the diverse and extensive array of experts and therapists who work with Gwiganna to further enhance your stay. From soothing spa therapies, to wellness consultations, balanced movement programs and stress management sessions, these can help you customise your Gwinganna experience each time you visit.

You can enjoy 16 different walks around bushland and forest nearby.

    "I am adamant that there is no better way to nourish, nurture and reboot your entire being than a visit to Gwinganna. I view it as less of an indulgence and more of a necessity - kind of like an annual service. And if that doesn't get you there? They have one of - if not the - best spas in the country."

    "Prior to coming to Gwinganna, I didn't think that a seven day break could leave me feeling so much more energetic, healthier and relaxed. Everything about Gwinganna reflects their passion and commitment to excellence. It's a unique environment. I will return every year for a recharge."

    "I have been going to Health Retreats for over 13 years. I rely on these wonderfully blissful places to give me the balance and calm that I can't give myself in everyday life. It puts me right back on track physically and mentally. I have referred many of my friends there. They have all had amazing experiences and all will go back again, it is just that type of place! ...and its great cause we all go back together which makes the experience that much more fun."

    "On a recent visit to Australia, I decided to visit the Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat since our readers voted it their favourite spa in Australia. Now that I have actually experienced their program, I can see why it has become so popular so quickly. In fact, who would have guessed that one of the best and smartest spa programs in all the world is only a few years old and in Australia? What sets Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat apart is the staff, the setting, the program, the cuisine, the treatments. In fact they do everything well. In many ways I found Gwinganna to be a glimpse into the destination spa for the 21st century. It isn't often that a spa which has only been opened a few years becomes a top spa award winner so quickly. But after visiting Gwinganna, I can understand why. They have incorporated the best of spa practices from around the world and made it their own.The result is a spa with a perfect balance which creates that balance in its clientele. And who doesn't need balance these days?"
