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.

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.

I love everything about Billabong. From the amazing food which was bountiful to the location, the yoga, meditation to hanging out with like-minded strangers ;) It's a jewel.
