The Experience

Founded in 2012, we have been dedicated to perfect our guests experience and have gained insights to what makes each retreat unique through our Guided Retreat. Now in 2019 we have evolved even further taking Wholesome Life to the next level where we live, breathe and embodying the Retreat life as daily way of life and choice, hence Retreat Life is now here.

To us this means treating ourselves as a whole nourishing all aspects of our life and wellbeing from our mental, emotional, physical, spiritual self,  financial, relationships and overall flow in our life experience. We currently live the Retreat Life in Byron Bay the perfect place for your next Destination Retreat.

This was the first health retreat I’d ever done and it really did exceed my expectations. It was the perfect balance of yoga, treatments, nourishing food, community interaction and timeout. The private resort was beautiful and I loved the daily yoga, meditation and workshops. Our retreat hosts and facilitators were amazing. Their passion, organisation, attentiveness and talents combined, really enhanced the experience for me. I left the trip with valuable insights and feeling refreshed. I highly recommend these retreats to anyone needing some time out, looking to try something different or wanting some healthy living inspiration!


Retreat Guest Review

Thank you for this amazing experience in a beautiful setting. Perfect guides, a well thought out schedule, indulgent accommodation and an intimate gathering of very special souls coming together to reflect, give thanks to our lives, and learning to improve our bodies so they can carry us into our inspired futures!! We all had FUN, learnt new things and connected. We are eternally grateful! Book me in for the next exciting adventure… 


Retreat Guest and Private Client for Spain Camino Group Retreat Trek

Our clients and staff wellness day was extremely well organised. It was run at the right place, lovely energy from the facilitators. Always great for staff in this type of industry to keep on top of their self-care and learn new skills. Would love to have a staff retreat.


Not-for-Profit Client, Retreat Staff Day

The way the whole of me was nourished, the food, the energy, the workshops, the activities, the ability to take a moment to breathe. What was really importance was that you didn’t push us to tell our stories. You respected our lives and let us choose to speak or not. Thank you.


Private Retreat Guest, organised for Client

I liked everything about the day and felt better for having attended. I liked the idea of a self care plan to follow. I can see that is important to do for myself.


Retreat Day Guest, Mindfulness / Self Care focus

I loved being with like-minded people in similar situations. Being able to connect in a relaxed, non-judgemental environment. I felt supported, nurtured, at ease, peace and relaxed. I am inspired to nature myself physically with diet and excerise but also mentally and emotionally as well.
