DO Exuding the elegance of a European villa, Authenticity Health and Wellness Retreat is a sanctuary that offers day treatments, overnight stays and longer detox packages. Select a service from the spa menu, which includes steam baths, massages and deep-sea mud wraps. There’s also a new range of clinical Medi-Spa treatments, and therapists can conduct health assessments and consultations on site.
EAT AND DRINK Biodynamic vegetarian fare is in the spotlight at Authenticity Café, where each nutritious meal is balanced for optimal health benefits and a delight to the senses. Hotelier and health educator Gregory Damaskos draws on the philosophies of ancient Greece, treating his Mediterranean menu like an artform. As sunlight streams through the vines of the al fresco dining area, you can relish a raw pasta pomodoro, paired with a glass of organic local wine. Be sure to leave room for vegan dessert, though.
STAY Authenticity Health and Wellness Retreat offers a selection of superbly presented boutique rooms. Decor such as wrought iron beds and rare antiques preserve the atmosphere of quieter times, so you’ll drift off to sleep in peace.
GET THERE Less than 90 minutes’ drive from the Adelaide CBD.
