Early days, but I'm hoping that my 5 days at Gwinganna will be the start of a "new" me. Staff are all amazing and so passionate that you cannot help but get caught up in the whole thing. I went as a big sceptic and have come home doing Qi Gong on my deck every morning, eating a better diet, and feeling much healthier (although I didn't lose any weight and don't expect to...the food is fab!)
We stayed in one of the villas which are just beautiful. A view to die for and more than enough space..although you might be surprised at how little time you actually spend in your room.
My only crticism was that housekeeping could be better (floors were some times less than clean and they seemed to have a deep aversion to replacing used toiletries).
I only had one treatment at the Spa, but everyone else (my wife included) raved about it. I spent a lot of my time doing various sessions in the gym and even ended up starting yoga.
Go.....and do Tribal Dance!
