Samadhi Health Retreat is Your Next Australian Spa Break

Samadhi Health Retreat is Your Next Australian Spa Break

If you’re going to have a spa break, you might as well do it properly. There’s perhaps nowhere better than Australia’s Macedon Region, a hotbed of more than 140 natural mineral springs. Inviting guests to journey into wellness, boutique retreat Samadhi is ideally nestled in the midst of this healing region, and provides the perfect base to facilitate transformational health experiences and custom-tailored wellbeing holidays.

The resort is located in the picturesque hinterlands of Victoria, Australia. The retreat is easily accessible, due to its location 90-minutes drive from Melbourne’s central business district and one hour from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport.

Another location bonus is the nearby historical towns of Daylesford and Hepburn Springs, which are home to many spas and springs.

Mindfully designed to cultivate a sense of peace and tranquillity, Samadhi’s distinct aesthetic is part of its charm. Built according to Feng Shui principles, the retreat (which is comprised of two self-contained houses that can accommodate up to four guests) was purpose built as a sensory-rich sanctuary, and consequently, enhances healing experiences.

Samadhi is surrounded by sculptural gardens, with simple yet warm Oriental-inspired interiors which reflect a meditative environment. Along with comfy, therapeutic, king-size beds, the rooms have courtyard gardens. Additionally, the accommodation features freshwater rain showers which use purified, oxygenated water sourced from the retreat’s rainwater tank. There are communal lounge areas, and in winter guests gather around the retreat’s indoor fireplace.
