AM we unequivocally not in Bali?
That’s a initial suspicion that enters my mind when we arise adult to Day One of a Escape Haven shelter in Byron Bay.
Admittedly, a shelter is modelled on a hugely successful Escape Haven Bali resort, so it’s no consternation I’m removing confused. Staying in a pleasing villa within a inhabitant park, where we can hear a sea as we nap and your phone has no reception, usually adds to a feeling that I’m a million miles from anywhere.
The brainchild of Janine Hall, who set out to emanate a restful, re-energising space in a rarely populated wellness shelter market, Escape Haven is Australia’s usually oppulance roller and yoga shelter designed and run exclusively for women, by women.
Set over 6 nights, your daily report is designed for you, with a goal that we leave a shelter totally blissed-out. There’s an onsite healing cook and yoga master, a visiting naturopath and bodywork therapist, and offsite surfing lessons for ladies of each ability level.
But what sets Escape Haven detached from each other wellness try is a balance.
The food is delicious, healthy, organic and fresh, though you’re also authorised things like coffee with breakfast and a potion of booze with dinner. You competence find yourself waking during 7am to do yoga, though you’re also usually as expected to have an whole afternoon to yourself to get a massage, review by a pool or ramble over to a beach. You can design to be pushed to your earthy extent as we try to master daily surfing sessions, though we can also design prolonged durations of imagining and relaxation.
Accepting usually 8 people during a time, if you’re after a shelter involving we and we alone, this is not a place for you. Meals and many activities are communal, and this is an conscious partial of a retreat’s structure.
But if we and your BFF have been articulate about holding some time out for years, Escape Haven is a ideal place to do usually that.
