Frequently asked questions

Will I still get the benefits of the regular program if I choose this option?

Yes, your desired wellness outcomes will still be achieved. However, you will have the option to experience a more private journey which also offers additional services.

Are my Spa and Wellness requests guaranteed?

You will have the support of a Retreat Concierge who will arrange to connect with you up to 3 weeks prior to arrival. During this meeting, your requests will be noted and priority will be given to guests on this package for all Spa and Wellness services. However, due to elements beyond our control, such as leave and illness, there may be adjustments needed.

Is the Retreat Concierge exclusive to me?

The Retreat Concierge will support all guests on the Gwinganna by Design option. This option is limited to maximum of 10 guests to provide a more exclusive experience.

Will this option allow me to work outside the Gwinganna boundaries of coffee and alcohol?

The boundaries set for each program will still be in place for guests who choose this option. The boundaries are in place to ensure the wellness outcomes are achieved for all guests including those on Gwinganna by Design.

Can I leave the retreat and come and go as I please?

Gwinganna strongly encourages all guests, including those who choose this option to remain on retreat for the duration of the stay. The cocoon provided by the environment along with the inclusive elements of each program are key to the success of many wellness outcomes particularly in reducing stress.

Will the menu be different?

The menu will offer additional exclusive choices along with the meals available to all guests. All meals and snacks will be nutritionally designed to meet the desired health outcomes for each program.

Can I arrive and depart on any day?

Each program is structured to meet a progressive outcome over a series of days. Therefore arriving and departing when the program starts and concludes is important to achieve the most from your health outcomes and experience.

Can I join in the activities and seminars each day?

Yes, you will have access to all the facilities, program activities and seminars. Additionally, you will have some exclusive additional options to choose from to design your wellness experience.

Do I have to attend all activities and seminars?
