Mother’s Day is fast approaching in Australia and if your stuck for ideas on what give mum, a retreat just might be the best idea – and I have found the perfect one.
The newly launched Mistere Spa and Retreat sets itself in one of Australia’s top ten most desirable destinations. It’s located in a town called Murwillumbah, which sits in the far north eastern area of New South Wales. Murwillumbah has been identified as one of the top most desirable places to live in Australia based on the surrounding natural beauty and excellent infrastructure, making it even more desirable as a spa location.
Surrounded by five World Heritage National Parks and the inspiring Mt. Warning, the countryside of Murwillumbah is a blend of rolling green hills and gently flowing rivers, punctuated with pockets of sugar cane, banana plantations, hobby farms and small village communities.
A visit to the newly inspired Mistere Spa and Retreat with this delightful subtropical climate is ideal for anyone looking to get away from city life for a few days; whether on a mid-week stay or during the weekend. The perfect setting of the area surrounding the retreat, makes it the perfect spot to help you detox, unwind, relax and chill.
The retreat itself is set in the centre of the beautiful Tweed Valley, only fifteen minutes from the quite beaches of the Tweed Coast and only forty minutes from Byron Bay. Making this retreat both an easy flight from Sydney or car trip from Brisbane.
Now, I haven’t actually stayed her myself. But I do plan on booking myself a stay pretty soon, and I know plenty of people who have stayed there, and they all have nothing but good things to say about the place.
You can stay in one of the three luxury villas nestled discretely within the bush paradise, which offers everything you’d expect from a five-star accommodation. The villas have been Stylishly decorated using a neutral colour palette borrowing from the hinterland surrounds, each has a spacious, modern kitchenette/dining area that transforms into an al fresco deck. There is an open-plan bedroom/living area with 50-inch flat-screen TV, and a full-size bathroom with an indulgent rainfall shower and/or double chromotherapy spa bath, depending on which villa you choose.
The grounds of the retreat are a plethora of bush trails, displaying beautiful and dramatic sculptures throughout; including a striking life sized rhino and broglas dancing in a lily pond. There’s even a zen garden which plays host to a large Buddha, who looks out over the verdant valley below. Days can be spent wandering the trails of the retreat, unwinding with an in-room massage, fishing in the lily pond, surfing at nearby beaches or browsing boutique shops in the nearby small towns.
Packages start at $600 for two nights inclusive of accommodation. Mistere Spa and Retreat –Urliup is offering a free night with any stay of two nights or more valid until 30 June 2018 and to be taken by 31 December 2018, subject to availability and gift vouchers available for mum also.
