Kaarna Sauna Winstermeet

Relax your stresses away in a traditional mobile Finnish wood-fired sauna.

Play

Begin your day with a gentle Hatha yoga session at Devahiti Yoga. Explore the mental and physical benefits of yoga for the mind, body and soul. This style of yoga is suitable for all levels and will help you create strength and mobility, as well as body awareness.   Even if you have never tried yoga before, this class will teach you to realign your body through breath awareness. Public and private sessions are available from various locations, including the Dunsborough Yacht Club and Dunsborough Country Club, and yoga by the bay in Dunsborough during the warmer months. You can also arrange bespoke private lessons complete with local tea-tastings to come to your accommodation. The perfect wellness experience.

Afterwards, cleanse your soul with a Scandinavian Kaarna Sauna. This Finnish woodfired mobile sauna can be delivered to your dream destination – whether it’s Surfers Point, parked hillside on a parcel of farmland, or overlooking a vineyard. Ideally, go for a swim in the ocean while you wait for the sauna to heat to your desired temperature. Relax your stresses away as you bask in the sauna and flush the toxins from your body. The increased circulation will leave you feeling energised.

Treat yourself to some jewellery shopping with a quick stop at John Miller Designs studio at Yallingup, or on the main strip in Margaret River. Inside, you will find an impressive selection of exquisite jewellery. There are engagement and wedding rings, wearable pieces of art, and dress rings – all made from genuine and conflict-free stones.

Wellness Weekend Glenarty Road

Glenarty Road offers a wholesome menu using locally grown produce.

Eat

Just off Caves Road in Yallingup you will find Arimia Estate, an off-the-grid and sustainable organic farm where most of the produce on its menu has been grown on its farm. Sit outside on the deck and overlook the tranquil natural bush environment, whilst savouring the restaurant’s impressive six-course degustation menu. Spoil yourself with a small glass of organic wine, such as their Rosé.

Fine-tune your breadmaking skills in a sourdough workshop at One Table Farm. In this comprehensive class, you will learn how to manage your sourdough starter, as well as discover shaping options and timetables. Or there is an authentic paddock to plate food farm experience, where you pick fresh produce from the garden and cook a variety of dishes that you later share with the group over a glass of wine. You will also learn the principles of regenerative and permaculture farming.

As you venture south of Margaret River, you will discover the Glenarty Road restaurant and vineyard in Karridale. This farm is blanketed in fresh produce with fruit trees, vegetable patches, a hop garden, 17 different cultivars, and grass-fed sheep. Much of this produce can be found on its wholesome menu, which changes regularly due to seasonality. Indulge yourself with a glass of its Kerfuffle biodynamic wines.

Olio Bello Glamping

Unwind in a luxury lakeside bungalow at Olio Bello.

Stay

Located in Yallingup, you will find premium chalet accommodation at Premalaya. Nestled amidst the forest, this is a place where you are encouraged to live in the moment and practise the art of life balance.  Let the sounds of the forest lull you to sleep, whilst the cleansing breeze of the Indian Ocean greets you in the morning. Retreat into this secluded patch of paradise, book in for a massage or yoga class, or arrange for a platter to be delivered to your doorstep.

Disappear from the world in a luxury lakeside bungalow at Olio Bello. Connect with nature and its abundance of wildlife in safari style glamping at this organic olive grove, with a complimentary grazing platter upon arrival. Relax on your private deck and watch the sun’s gradual decline over the lake in this unique accommodation experience.

Wind down in a self-sustained eco luxury pod at Barn Hives in Yallingup. The pristine Smith’s Beach is only minutes away from these contemporary pods, which overlook a vineyard and are surrounded by the Barnyard Bees farm. The industrial architecture was guided by nature to create sustainable accommodation that blends seamlessly into the prolific bush landscape. Dine on homemade pasta, or order a share platter of olives, bread, charred meats and pickles from Barnyard 1978, right next door.
