I visited Solar Springs with a group of friends for a 60th birthday celebration / pamper week. What a treat!! Solar Springs Health Retreat is looking a little tired, but it didn't deter from a fabulous 3 days with them. We (group of 4 women) stayed in the cottage at the front of the Retreat. We had a bedroom each, all with private facilities. The rooms faced onto an enclosed verandah, solely for the use of those staying in the Cottage. The two middle rooms do not have windows, but they do have a skylight for natural lighting - the bathrooms in these two rooms are basic but adequate. The end rooms are larger, have windows and a larger bathroom. Unfortunately, the local council were working on the water outside the retreat when we were there, so hot water was limited. I viewed some of the other rooms at the Retreat. Some have private facilities, but most have shared facilities. The restaurant, and the food were spectacular. Fresh produce, wholesome health meals. The therapists, treatments, classes and overall serenity of the place really helped me to relax very quickly. We rose every morning with a stretch class, followed by breakfast, a bush walk, back for aquarobics, lunch and then either a treatment, a sleep, or another gym class in the afternoon. Following dinner, we did a meditation every night and then back to the room for a peaceful sleep. I really 'chilled out' in the 3 days I was there. Solar Springs is about a 4 minute walk from the little town of Bundanoon which has some nice coffee shops and little shops. We opted not to drink alcohol when we were there, however they do offer a wine list at dinner ... and even coffee if you want it. Whilst catering for dietary requirements (I am celiac and require gluten free), there is a good selection of all food types. I have stayed at other places that only offer vegetarian, so having fish, chicken or meat is a nice option. Bundanoon itself is close to Morton National Park - and the bushwalking options offered by the retreat, in the park, are quite beautiful. The air is fresh. A nice escape to rejuvenate yourself!
