I was impressed as soon as I walked up the stone driveway. A gorgeous old house set on a picturesque property. I felt an air of calm and relaxation as I was welcomed by staff. I enjoyed a 90 minute therapeutic massage by a female massage therapist. She was friendly and professional whilst respecting my individual needs. I highly recommend... More

This place truly lives up to it's name! There is nothing superficial, artificial or make believe at this place. My short stay was filled with moments and interactions with staff, guests and those I travelled with that filled my heart with joy, hope and gratitude. This is a place of appreciation... Book shelves filled from Plato to Castaneda, Natural homes... More

Irenie was amazing, the massage was amazing, I found out later that Irene spends more time in reception where she is also very helpful however I feel... More

I am writing this review in response to the disappointment my mother and I felt about our recent 2-night visit to Authenticity Health and Wellness Retreat. This is a long review but that is necessary because unfortunately our disappointments were many.

We came to Authenticity & stayed for several days to enjoy a range of indulgent massage, spa & detox treatments. That part proved to be excellent & the staff, led by Gregory, were friendly & very competent. The spa facilities are quaintly spread in & around an old manor house built in 1864, soon after South Australia was founded in... More

On arrival welcomed by receptionist who was lovely, but the friendliness ended there. Reading about this place it states "We advocate fresh, local and organic foods with high vibrational life-force .We use a bountiful variety of organic and bio-dynamic fruits, vegetables, grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, herbs, spices, virgin olive oils and dairy products" so the biggest disappointment was the evening...

A great escape from everyday life. We spent two nights and had a great time. The property is situated on a peaceful countryside and is very quiet. The communal courtyard, sunroom and lounge room are the perfect place to relax and read with a glass of the local organic wine or a coffee. the hotrock massage is fantastic and highly... More
