Rainforest Gardens

relax and slow down

Beautiful mosaic tiles and pathways meander through lush gardens and natural rock steps. Here retreatants can relax and slow down in the beauty of natural surroundings. As evening settles, path lights softly glow, creating a magical effect to light the way for guests to and from their rooms.

The forest on the Eastern face of the property receives the morning sun and attracts early risers for meditation and yoga practices. Fresh sea air and views through the forest to Tallows beach promote deep breathing, health and revitalisation.

The Western slope features sub-tropical rainforest with walking trails to a lily pond in the valley. In Zen Mindfulness Walks, many guests have quietly trodden this path, immersed in the beauty of native flora and fauna. This abundantly reforested land gives one a sense of being in a national park, enveloped by a vibrant orchestra of insect and bird life.

During our silent Insight Meditation retreats, participants can enjoy spending an hour working in the gardens together. With hands in the earth and feeling connected to the land, they feel grounded and balanced in body and mind, which complements their contemplative practices.
