Elysian – the most secluded island retreat in the Whitsundays and the first entirely solar powered resort on the Great Barrier Reef – launches Elysian SoulScape Wellness Retreat this November. A five-day serene sojourn into the tropics, the retreat seeks to provide a wellness prescription for life.
Elysian Eco Retreat is a soulfully crafted, ecologically designed wellness oasis in Paradise Bay on the southern point of Long Island. Here, guests will find a three-hectare private cove with a rocky beach, surrounded by rainforest and all the magnificence of the Great Barrier Reef. With 10 beautifully appointed air-conditioned oceanfront villas enjoying ocean, mountain and rainforest views, the accommodation is as stunning as it is serene. Private balconies with uninterrupted water views, high cathedral ceilings and large windows all work harmoniously to bathe the space in natural light and calm.
Elysian is whole-heartedly committed to protecting the beauty of the area; nurturing and maintaining the critical balance between the resort and the diverse ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef through implementing sustainable practices across all levels of the business from water and wastage through to fuel and emissions. With ample opportunities to relax and soak up all the beauty that the island has to offer, guests can enjoy the retreat’s mineral water pool which works to alleviate stress and anxiety, detoxify the body and reduce aches and pains to induce a peaceful sleep; or simply idle time away in a hammock. With crystal clear waters as far as the eye can see, guests can also take a paddle board or kayak to explore the expansive, blissfully uninhabited island. Elysian prides itself on offering tailored, truly personalised experiences not to be forgotten. With an exclusive feel and boutique approach, the island holds a maximum of twenty guests at any one time with dedicated hosts on hand day and night to help ensure your stay is truly memorable.
Inspired by the retreat’s natural surroundings, Elysian’s chef creates a daily changing menu which highlights the freshest seasonal produce. With vegetables and herbs selected from the island’s own garden and fresh seafood sourced from local fisherman, the bounty of satisfying and delicious food on offer is sure to warm the soul.
Rounding out the resort’s holistic wellness offering, Elysian now launches its SoulScape Wellness Retreat this November. The five-night retreat from November 18 – 23 seeks to provide guests with wellness practices that will stay with them long after the retreat is over. With two thought leaders in Lee-Ann Lovegrove and Robyn Harris presenting at the retreat, guests are sure to take away invaluable tools for practicing mindfulness in everyday life.
At its core, Elysian SoulScape Wellness Retreat lays the foundation for a journey towards uncovering the happiest and healthiest version of yourself. With daily yoga and meditation, sound and crystal bowl therapies, evening fire sessions and spa treatments on offer in addition to paddle boarding and snorkelling – the retreat has something for everyone.
