There’s something extremely special about this place. Less than an hour from the City, Glass House Retreat is is a purpose-built detox and wellness retreat where you can reconnect with yourself.

On arrival, we were greeted by friendly staff who gave us the grand tour of the property. After that, we made our way to our room – a superior double. The rooms are generously sized and are equipped with everything that you’ll need for an overnight stay at the retreat. The rooms on the first floor also boast stunning views of the countryside.

This property includes a gym, yoga studio, and an impressive spa. Whether you want to swim in the natural swimming pond, practice some mindfulness in the outdoor wellness dome or relax in the outdoor hot tub – there is quite truly something for everyone. They also host a wonderful range of classes to try during your stay. One to try, is the sound bath – a wonderful experience that will have you feeling zen. We also loved the aqua session, which was led by a wonderful instructor.

The treatments at this spa are wonderful. We’d recommend trying out a massage. The massage therapist uses her expertise and knowledge to understand where the body needs the most work and constantly works with the client to learn about where their aches and pains sit. The treatment rooms are spacious and luxurious and are the perfect spot to relax an unwind.

The menu at the retreat is superb. The food here is 100% plant-based meals, which are all made from locally sourced and freshly delivered ingredients. We’d recommend the pancakes for breakfast, absolutely divine. The spring rolls are also delicious and a great starter. However, the star of the show for us, is the chocolate brownie – outstanding.

Overall, this is a magnificent wellness retreat just outside of the City that allows you to rejuvenate, relax and recharge. If you’re in need of a wellness retreat that kickstarts you back into a healthy regime then this is the place to visit. The team at City Matters are huge fan of this retreat – it is a phenomenal wellness experience that combines tranquillity and luxury.
