My husband and I came back last week from the 4 night Nourishing You program and wow, what a game changer. Firstly - for those interested in sipping cocktails or even mocktails by the pool and switching off by doing nothing....Gwinganna is not for you and is not at all what this place is about. It is a place to... More

Dear Samantha M Thank you so much for your review. We are thrilled that your stay was such a great experience for you both. Guests constantly tell us the opportunity to switch off and immerse themselves in this secluded and spacious environment is a big part of helping them to slow down for a few days.

I recently stayed at gwinganna for a 2 night stay. The positives were; beatiful food and plenty of it - I was concerned I would go hungry but if anything I never felt hungry, lovely location, loved that the pool, showers and drinking water is rain water, pools have amazing views, steam room was awesome (but really disappointing that it...

I have done the 3 day explore and the 7 day detox. I enjoyed the 3 day discovering as the detox was very tough. The accommodation is extremely clean and neat. There was wildlife everywhere which was great to see. The food really is exceptional, vegetarian and plenty of it. The educational seminars are held by experts that are top... More

Gwinganna was a most amazing experience. I have never felt so acknowledged for exactly who I am. I am still recovering from an illness and am not very strong (yet). No matter what I did or didn't do, I was totally accepted and it felt so good. I was encouraged to listen to my body at every turn of events.... More

The 7 day detox at Gwinganna was everything I hoped it would be - relaxing and informative with a very sharp eye on a holistic approach to health. It wasn't a boot camp (this is not a fat farm) but a place to reenergise and spend time learning about your health with other like minded people. The accomodation and facilities... More

I have been coming to Gwinganna ever since it opened and it has consistently been improving its offerings. I cannot think of any other retreat (and I have been to many) where there is such an outstanding combination of location, staff, healers, program and interesting people to get to know. The location in divine rainforest bushland is wonderfully peaceful and,... More

I went to Gwignanna, pregnant and was looking forward to relaxation and pampering. The food portions were restricted. I was hoping for beautiful, fresh abundance of juices, healthy desserts etc but this was not the case. They served freshly squeezed juices once for afternoon tea and dessert at the last lunch only. I was actually hungry a lot of the... More

It was my first visit to Gwinganna. At first I was a little worried about travelling solo but I believe it is an absolute must for a place like this! You benefit so much from having some "me" time and also bonding with others. Had a wonderful group and I really do believe that this played a major role in... More
