Wanting to just get away and and get refreshed and renewed then we have two amazing resorts to offer.  Kamalaya in Koh Samui, Thailand and Gwingana in the Hinterland of Queensland's Gold Coast. They both offer a great range of Wellness Programs that will cover whatever you and your body require.  We have had a small group of woman who recently returned from a stay at Gwingana. Each requiring some similar activities and some specific for each woman as well.  They all enjoyed the experience that Gwingana offered and would return.  Here is a comment from one of them "Gwingana health retreat was great and I would recommend it. It is a true retreat though with quite a strict diet . We had no sugar,no caffeine, and all food was gluten and dairy free. very nice meals."
