Wellness Retreats

Our Wellness Retreats are tailored experiences designed to give you a sense of balance and wellbeing. Enjoy our beautifully appointed rooms overnight, or for as long as you like. Take time out for yourself, rest and de-stress. Focus on slowing down and understand the importance of calmness in your life. Spending time in our beautiful surroundings whether it be at the beach, by the river or in the forest, will help you connect with nature and relieve stress.

Our wellness consultants and spa therapists can take you on the complete wellness journey from nutrition, kinesiology, yoga, Pilates, meditation, reiki or something more active like mountain bike riding, bush walks and personal training.

 

There will be plenty of time to relax in our wonderful day spa and feel completely renewed in both body and mind. We have a number of wellness journeys designed for you, or you are welcome to design your own choosing from the experiences listed below. 

 

Call and speak to our wonderful therapists at Lux Spa & Wellness who can help tailor the perfect journey for you. Let us know how many nights you would like to stay with us at Great Ocean Road Resort and we will recommend treatments from our extensive spa menu to suit your skin type and relaxation needs. Next we will help you choose an experience from the following list based on what you are looking for on your wellness journey. 

Kinesiology uses gentle muscle testing to identify imbalances in the body, be it structural, emotional, nutritional or chemical. With the use of muscle testing, kinesiologists find the glitch that is stopping you from moving forward. Look forward, find your magic and leave the obstacles of the past behind.

Nutrition looks at what is going into our bodies. Health and wellbeing are affected by multiple external and internal factors, some of which lead to functional disorders and chronic disease. Your Nutritional Medicine practitioner will identify the cause of dysfunction, develop a specified treatment and prevention plan and give you the tools you require to re-establish and maintain wellbeing. 

Nutrition alongside of Kinesiology, ignites powerful healing. Stress plays a major role in our health & wellbeing, with Kinesiology diffusing stress, this allows your physical body the chance to come back into homeostasis.

Personal training is offered both on and off site. Our personal trainers focus on your needs to provide the advice and motivation you need to get in shape and be the best version of yourself. 

Yoga and Pilates are taught allowing you to find your balance and restore your mind in a welcoming space. Focus on your body with specific exercises and stretches to improve flexibility and posture, while strengthening your muscles. 

Meditation classes will guide you to a sense of calm. Take a break from everyday life and reach a clear mental and emotional state. Mindfulness works to reduce stress while improving your mood, awareness and sleep. 


Mountain bike riding sessions take you as far or close to the Resort as time permits. We have sessions for beginners, showing you the basics of mountain biking, all the way through to riders with experience, wanting to experience Anglesea’s trail network.


Coastal and nature hikes can take you on walks at any time of the day, however, early morning/evening, will have you hearing the abundance of bird life that surrounds us. Join in on a short river walk, or become a little adventurous, and take a hike around the beautiful Currawong Falls loop. 

Infrared Sauna sessions allow you to unwind and enjoy the warmth and relaxation of infrared heat. Choose from 6 customised wellness programs depending on your needs. Infrared helps the body to sweat, detox, cleanse and rejuvenate. Use our chromotherapy option to enhance your experience with light therapy. Each light has a different effect: relaxation, clarity, energy, focus, balance or positivity. Ideal to compliment a massage treatment to further reduce muscle tension and stress.

Shirodhara is a unique experience at our day spa. Be transported to a complete state of relaxation as a warm and consistent flow of oil is streamed on the forehead, specifically on the ‘third eye’. As the warm oil flows over the scalp and through the hair, creating a
harmonious sensation, it allows your body to release serotonin and encourage a balance of mind, body & spirit. This soothing oil is then massaged into the scalp to further release any areas of tension.

Private surfing lessons can be arranged for you while you are staying on the Surf Coast, one of the world’s most famous surf regions. Surf some of the region’s rich surf breaks.
