The Retreat

Samadhi Retreat is one structure comprised of two private wings which are separated by a large internal gallery area with internal/ external water feature. Privacy is assured with your own separate entrance and beautifully landscaped gardens. The exterior design of the retreat is modern contemporary, reflecting the country landscape through the diverse use of materials used. The retreat has a distinct style which is reflected by sweeping architectural lines, curved sun shades and double rendered interior walls for thermal mass.

To step inside the retreat, is to step into another world, as the interior reflects a celebration of Oriental culture and style which gives Samadhi its distinctly unique appeal. It reflects a meditative environment that contrasts with the the outside world. Texture, light and space are integral components of the spa to stimulate the senses of the body and to create a feeling of total well-being. Samadhi's design features include a stunning internal/external water feature and sculptural works of art, such as the Buddha statues taken from original 500yr old Chinese casts from the Forbidden City in China.

The retreats are elegant in style and specifically designed to provide a sanctuary in which you can completely surrender to the peace and tranquility of the retreat. At your fingertips are flat screen plasma television, DVD, and hi-fi equipment; or lie back and relax with a book or magazine of your choice. The bedrooms have comfortable therapeutic beds with luxurious alpaca doonas which will ensure a wonderfully restful nights sleep. The bathroom features a double walk-in rain shower and provides a relaxing space for you to do nothing else but purify and nurture the body. The 'Quan Yin' courtyard garden reflects a pure and fluid space to move between the bathroom and 'Oriental Bath House' yeilding a haven of peace and serenity.

The Daylesford region is known for its 'healing waters', and Samadhi is fortunate to have a source of high quality ground water on the property, as well as a good supply of rainwater from our catchment tanks. This means guests are supplied with non-chlorinated water, for showering, bathing, and all spa therapies. The importance of clean energetic water is such, that we have gone a step further at Samadhi, to provide the latest technology in purified and energized water. This system oxygenates the water and has substantial health benefits. Our commitment to sustainable business operations including waste minimization, energy and water conservation is reflected in the facility's operations. A solar hot water system and organic waste system were installed to further energy efficiency and provide an eco friendly waste solution which gives back to the land.

Smoking: Samadhi is a wellness retreat and therefore smoking on the property is  strictly prohibited.
