We are thrilled to announce that Gwinganna has been awarded the World’s Best Eco Spa.
Gwinganna's facilities provide everything you need for the ultimate wellness experience.
There are two heated swimming pools, a spacious dining room, numerous relaxation areas and lounges, an extensive spa and a boutique store. The newest addition is our Wellness Education Complex, custom designed for welcome presentations and key wellness seminars with a large outdoor deck and new consultation rooms.
The Spa Sanctuary is a haven for spa treatments and relaxation. A journey through three individual buildings that come together in circular form to create the entire spa compound of 1500sqm over three levels. Utilising an indoor/outdoor design with three towering ancient gum trees as the centrepiece, you are completely surrounded by nature. This is a space to be nurtured, to relax and to experience treatments that are unique to Gwinganna.
Part of the original buildings at Gwinganna, the dining room is a place to gather and experience delicious organic cuisine both indoors and outdoors. With plenty of space to relax or chat, part of the dining room also overlooks the infinity edge relaxation pool.
An infinity edge custom designed lap pool with views to the Gold Coast is a highlight of the activity areas whether for water based training sessions, swimming laps or just for relaxation. Heated for your comfort, the pool is used all year round due to the mild climate of this area, while the adjoining sauna is the perfect addition before or after your pool session in the cooler months. Indoor activities are held in various locations including the spacious studio known as The Hangar and the indoor cycling studio.
The spacious pavilion is built from reclaimed timbers with view to the valley and ocean. A stunning venue for many activity sessions from stretch to yoga and dance.
Many activity sessions are held in and around this striking two level mutli-purpose facility built from reclaimed timbers. The ground floor features the gymnasium and private consultation rooms. An extensive range of Technogym equipment will provide everything you need for effective indoor resistance training or personal training sessions. On the second level, private sessions incorporate Pilates and Kinesis resistance training equipment.
Gwinganna's stunning Wellness Education complex opened in 2018, providing a custom designed space for wellness seminars and presentations. It features a full suite of audio visual equipment, wellness consultation rooms and a large outdoor deck, along with undercover parking spaces. Each stay at Gwinganna includes a focus on wellness education with informative seminars by leading practitioners and special guest presenters, providing guests with the very latest information to help them realise their healthiest intentions.
Gwinganna has created an Iyengar yoga studio adding to its already extensive facilities. The only studio of its kind in an Australian retreat, Iyengar yoga is quite different from our regular yoga classes of Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa and Restorative. In the studio you will find yoga mats set with bolsters, blankets, blocks, special chairs and ropes hanging from the wall. Whilst you might be familiar with some of these props, their use in yoga actually originates from the Iyengar style which works to help you feel safe, supported and therefore more able to relax during yoga. Look for it on your next Gwinganna visit.
One of the original buildings on the property has been restored into a dispensary for herbs and supplements, and consultation rooms for naturopathy, nutrition and various wellness therapies.
Built from repurposed stone and bluestone the ampitheatre is set beside the dining room and often hosts pre-dinner gatherings and impromptu musical experiences.
Located near the main organic gardens, two courts provide a scenic place to play a game or two.
Gwinganna invites you to walk the path of our beautiful labyrinth on your next visit. For centuries ancient cultures have revered the labyrinth as something that can inspire a journey to a newly energised body and reawakened spirit. Today guests find the labyrinth a special component of their stay, sometimes done in community but more often privately on their own.
There is one way in and one way out of the labyrinth. Circling to the centre is a journey to the core of one's inner being. There is no right or wrong way. It can be walked to simply clear the mind or as a more sacred experience.
The Store at Gwinganna is located in one of the heritage buildings and provides a haven of beautiful gifts and essential items to use during your stay or to take home. It stocks all the incidentals you may have forgotten to bring with you. Many of the items available are unique to Gwinganna or brought to you by some of our key practitioners. The online store also stocks some of the most popular items from the retreat.
