Fabulous experience

“I am leaving here today feeling vibrant and energised with new techniques to nurture and be true to myself”  Nicole

Food for body and Soul

Love & peace

“I found a level of consciousness that is pure love and peace . . .I found SAMADHI” Marianne

Fantastic, unbelievable Superb

“What can I say about a place like this. Fantastic, unbelievable, superb, doesn’t even come close. From the smallest Buddha to the wonderful couch , the attention to detail and our needs went beyond the call of duty. We thank you for building this dream come true! Will & Simone

Thank you so much

“As soon as you develop an instant spray product that gives you that same wonderful, clean, relaxed, floating on air sensation, similar to how I felt once I walked out of the treatment room CALL ME! Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful retreat with us, we had the most amazing time here”  Jo & Belinda

A dream come true

“This retreat was like a  dream come true for both of us!! It was exactly what we were hoping for & much much more!! Everything here is so perfect & is like a fairy tale…”.

My Proposal

This place has created so many good memories for us now; so many that my partner just thought he would add another one & he PROPOSED!! It was beautifully planned & unexpected but I was glad he did it here. This place is forever gonna stay in our hearts as our beautiful, peaceful, relaxing getaway and we will definitely be back soon!! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Jasmine & David

We wanted to stay forever

“We love this place so much we want to stay forever! What you have created is truly wonderful, we’ll be back for sure!!” Mum and daughter, Kumi and Asami

Honoring myself

I have pulled together many loose strands here this week, and learnt that honoring thyself is an essential part of personal dignity. I particularly valued Wayne’s gentle guidance & Annah’s healing feminine quality encouraged me to cherish that in myself. Catherine

A memorable experience

“This trip was foreign territory for me and I have my loving daughters to thank for guiding me in this direction. It has been an amazing experience for me and you put me at ease very early in our stay with your professionalism and your fantastic natures. You are an awesome team: your skill and experience is only the tip of the iceberg. Many thanks for an enlightening and exceptionally memorable experience.”. Rod

A Sanctuary and a place to grow

“The seasons changed during my stay, a symbol of my own transformation. I arrived with the rain and departed into the sunshine, somehow it feels warmer this winter. Annah & Wayne, thank you for hosting me!! Your place is sanctuary. Wayne – thank you for holding me in such a challenging space. I look forward to continued possibilities – for you, your visions and the freedom you bring to others on a journey”. Paula

You have changed my life

Four nights ago (only 4 nights) I trudged in here feeling so weary. Tomorrow I leave feeling like a brand new person. You have both changed my life, given me the wonderful opportunity to better myself. Tomorrow I will fly out of here like a kingfisher, looking forward to my new life with my wonderful husband. I will take with me, some of this wonderful place, the magical environment, & a little of you two and the marvelous experiences you saw me through. The path is so much brighter as I look ahead & I thank you both from the bottom of my heart. This experience & yourselves will stay with me forever.” Sharron

Thank you

“It took me a while to make the commitment to come here alone – to pamper myself without guilt & regret. I am so glad that I finally committed. Thank you for your patience and understanding. I feel rejuvenated and reconditioned. Thank you for your generous hospitality, your attention to detail is what makes the difference”. Suzi

You helped me to discover myself and see what’s truly important again

I want to thank you both for ‘saving me’ from the dark and bringing me back to the light – my life. I was in desperate need of soul searching and lovely pampering which I had been too guilty to do. But by coming here you helped me discover myself, helped me to relax and understand whats truly important in my life. I go back to my family (with much excitement) as a different person, a better person. Yours gratefully, Joanne

Our sincerest thanks

“How can we thank you enough for introducing us to the ‘SAMADHI EXPERIENCE’, Your attention to detail, along with your caring, gentle natures have introduced us to a place we feel so privileged to enter. I cannot begin to explain how different I feel departing today compared to when we arrived . . .  Our sincerest thanks,”  Peta & Troy

Helped me to regain my inner strength

In my time here you have helped me out of depths of gloom and have helped me to regain my inner strength, happiness and light. I have been spoiled with delicious meals, and feel so relaxed by your hospitality and my surrounds. The sessions were each in their own way unforgettable. Thank you both so much for helping me find the courage to be myself again. Sarah

Such a beautiful retreat

“We are honored to be your first overseas guests. It must be fate that brings us here to your beautiful retreat, and we enjoy very much not only your treatments, but also the very personal service and impecable ambiance in your retreat. We can feel that you two have put your Heart in running the retreat, and providing comfort to all your guests. This makes you different from other more commercial retreats. We hope we shall have the opportunity to come back again in the future.

Best wishes,” Mary & Yolanda

One night is not enough

“Couldn’t think of a more suitable name for this place. Our experience is pure samadhi. One night is not enough! The next time we book, it’ll be for a month!! Ana, the moisturizing thing was AWESOME! Wayne, you got the Midas Touch!! Annah, you were right, we slept in our robes and didn’t want to take them off! They are so comfy!  Thanks, Randall & Ronnie

You helped me take care of myself

“What a wonderful sanctuary you have created for human kind to experience and enjoy. Samadhi is a wonderful place to restore, revive and energise ones mind and soul. Thank you for allowing us the privilege to experience its beauty. I leave relaxed, refreshed and serene after my (all to brief) stay. Thank you Wayne for my ‘Bliss’ treatment experience and for highlighting what I need to take care of with my physical body”   Nadia

A special retreat

“Thank you for having us at your special retreat. It is just what my tired body and Spirit needed. The little extra touches make a persons’ stay more memorable. Annah, thank-you for the massage. You should register your hands under National Trust; your a master of your art. Thank you for your care and concern and your generous hospitality,”  Nicole and Greg

“Absolutely Magnificent!!

We came to Daylesford to do plenty and ended up spending most of our time relaxing at Samadhi!! The treatments and the package was truly ‘Heaven Scent’ and we thank you for your personalized prescriptions. Good luck with all your future plans, we are sure they will be exceptional. Look forward to seeing you at Samadhi very soon!! ”    Anna & Frank

I needed to take time out

I needed somewhere very private, very peaceful, very cozy & very beautiful. . . this place is heaven! Samadhi is the perfect retreat. I’ll see you again.”  Kate

So much lovely pampering

“I enjoyed your retreat so much, from the excellent accommodation, to the personal attention in the treatments and meals. My heart really felt at home, especially each evening when the dinner was graciously placed on the table. After all that lovely pampering, I feel like a new man! At least ONCE, this retreat should become part of every person’s life. Keep on the path of heart!” Francois

Thanks for the hospitality

“May everyone who is fortunate enough to obtain an ‘Alfonzo’ alpaca Doona be blessed with countless good nights’ sleep. Many thanks for your hospitality and “hands – on” contribution (my feet are very happy and my mother is radiant!)”   Siobhan

A home away from home

“This place felt like a ‘home away from home’, without all of the people around that you usually have when you go stay somewhere. The peace and quiet was bliss. And what can we say about the treatments – “Pure Bliss”!! Thank-you,” Patricia & Charles

Thank you

“Thank-you for all the energy and thought you put into ME!” Melanie

You have truly touched my life
