4. Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat, Australia

Sited next to a tropical rainforest on Australia’s magnificent Gold Coast, Gwinganna is a place that truly rejuvenates the soul and uplifts the spirit – organically, of course. The approach is holistic and soulful with a nod to ancient Aboriginal practices, such as the Spirit of Sound treatment where a trance inducing rhythm is played while you are massaged with basalt stones and rain sticks. Organic food is grown on the property and you might find yourself sharing space with wallabies and being serenaded by native rainforest birds.


Famous fans of Gwinganna include Hugh Jackman (who loved it so much it he actually bought it and is the current owner!) and Nicole Kidman.
