I went with my sister to Billabong for a midweek escape from our busy jobs, lives and minds. We are both yoga novices and Paul and his staff provided the perfect balance of yoga teaching, meditation and freedom to relax. There is a simple schedule of classes, and you attend what you want. Even attending everything there was till plenty of time for relaxing (and they even schedule in an afternoon nap!). The location is perfect for the retreat and the facilities blend perfectly into the natural environment (and Eco-friendly to top it off). The rooms/cabins are very simple but all we needed (however I would recommend you bring your own pillow).
The food deserves its own paragraph. Fresh, delicious, healthy and amazing. I would go back for the food alone! Recommending it to everyone I talk to.
