My two weeks in Ulpoltha were fascinating and enthralling. I went along with my sister, Lorraine, the visiting Yoga teacher.The experience of daily Yoga practise, swimming in the beautiful freshwater lake and the proximity of the wonderful wildlife were all uplifting, transcendental experiences in their own right.
The vegetarian food was delicious and revitalising with new dishes on offer each day.
Our fellow guests were vivacious and great to be around, our leisurely lunches were the scene of many compelling debates.
The innate natural beauty of Ulplotha had both a humbling and stimulating effect in equal measure.
Suzi was the perfect hostess helped to really bring the place alive.
