As this was my first real experience of the yoga retreat (and I was there for 5 nights) I was a little apprehensive - plus the no wifi .......and travelling solo. I really didn't know quite what to expect and I have to say that I was very satisfied with my entire stay. Better than I had hoped. The Service...

Hi Nicky, Thank you for such a wonderful thorough review. I loved how you shared your experience on all the different aspects that we offer here, and the fact that you didn’t need to bring any food with you as there is plenty here :) You mentioned keeping an open mind and embracing the entire philosophy of the retreat which...

On arrival, the signage is not that helpful, so if you decide to go you might just drive by it by accident. When I found reception, I checked in and received a 5 minute, "not much of a," tour. There is no written material handed out or even a book in your room, so it's hard to work out where...

We stayed for 2 nights in a deluxe cabin and it was perfect - great room, comfortable bed and delicious food. Great place for yoga and meditation, with beautiful facilities. Beautiful setting to relax and get back to nature. The staff are super friendly and helpful.

You know, you gotta love or hate TripAdvisor! My friend suggested this retreat and I dutifully did the research and read the reviews. The negative reviews centred around the food or lack of it. I have been caught out by TripAdvisor comments once before so thought I would 'air on caution' and packed lots of snacks for our 3 nights...

Hi Nicole, We are so glad that you stepped out and tried our retreat. Thank you for your beautiful review, it does sometimes take a bit of time to drop the busyness and really relax so staying 3 nights can definitely help with that. As well as that we try to create all the ingredients to help with that progression,...

I really enjoyed my solo escape to Billabong Retreat. Unlimited access to yoga and meditation sessions with the option of additional therapies. My treehouse was well-appointed with an second tub on my balcony overlooking the bush land. Thoughtful inclusions like preloaded ipod storing great selection of music, podcasts and meditation really made this a perfect place for me.

I recently stayed for 3 nights with my mum and sister and we absolutely loved the retreat. Delicious healthy food, beautiful surroundings, and wonderful yoga teachers with classes that anyone could enjoy whether you're a dedicated yogi or trying yoga for the first time. So accessible from Sydney, we'll definitely be back.
