On a spur of the moment decision, I booked into Solar Springs Retreat, Bundanoon in March 2015. Over the seven days of my stay, the staff, all of the staff were attentive, cheerful, funny, informative and kind. Guests are encouraged to do as much or as little as they like from the large range of activities on offer. The food... More

This is not a luxury resort, not that it claims to be. In fact it's a bit faded and dowdy. Equipment and activities are very good. The 25 metre pool is good but lacks gutters which serious swimmers need for smooth water. The food is only OK.

It was a girls' experience for myself and a friend in April, 2014. We purchased one of the 5 night packages which included sessions with a naturopath, life coach, massages, personal trainer, plus information sessions by life coach and naturopath. There was access to pool, spa, archery, walks, yoga, stretch classes and more! The guests were all very sociable and... More

My wife Sandra and I wanted to recharge our batteries at a health spa not too far from Sydney, so after a 2 hour drive we arrived in Bundanoon home of Solar Springs Retreat. Here is mainly her review. If your body feels a bit sluggish after too much of the good life and over-eating, or you just want to... More

Spent 5 days there over new years. As I overheard several times during my stay by guests it's a 'wellness retreat not a health retreat'. This means that while the food is reasonably healthy, you get desert every night, morning coffee and can have a wine with dinner and afternoon tea was a bit indulgent. You can do as much... More

Happy New Year and what better way to see the new year in than on the deck overlooking the Moreton national park, kangaroos munching on the luscious lawn nearby and around 30 happy people champagne in hand! Solar Springs for NYE should be on everyone's list to do once in a lifetime. Here's why: The fantastic heated pool and divine... More

Everything the good reviews say about solar springs is true. I loved it. The food is ridiculously good, the treatments are also very good and the staff are absolutely wonderful. Highly recommend going MID WEEK for 5 days on your own, so you can really get in to the healthy relaxed vibe. You can chose to pamper, or to focus... More

A great place to relax and/ or attend organized classes and bush walks. Do as much or as little as you desire. I stayed here a couple of years ago but the timetable of activities and the food was much better this time. I bought the cook book last time but as the menu was so much better this time... More

We have just finished five nights at SSHR and I am feeling very relaxed and recharged. A comfortable place to stay, the rooms are simple and clean, facilities are very good and the food is excellent. You can participate in as much or as little as you wish and at your own pace - no whip crackers here! The staff... More

Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. The food is delicious and healthy. The staff are amazing. Can't praise them enough. Do as little or as much as you want. The best place in NSW to de stress. A great place to go on your own for a few days. You can join in or not as it suits you.
