Sangoma Retreat, NSW, Australia

February 2014

Located at the base of the Blue Mountains, the Sangoma Retreat is a 5 "suite" adult only retreat and the perfect place to get away from it all.

We survived the the chaos of the M2 and Richmond Rd on a Friday afternoon to an automatically relaxing environment. We were welcomed by our hosts and showed around the common areas before being introduced to our accommodation - The tent. All that was left for us to do was eat, drink and relax.


There are five accommodation options at Sangoma - the Tent was the only option still available when we booked - and the best option for us.

The tent isn't your typical tent, even in the glamping world.

Its perched on the edge of the bush, with a large deck on one side, and in the tent a large bed and bath.

All meals are taken in the common dining room, each couple getting their own table.

Food is set, and its a great opportunity to try new things and reintroduce yourselves to old favouites.

Brunch on the final day is eaten at 11 am, part of me appreciated eating at a later hour, but eating at 9 am (as we had the previous day) would have allowed us to get a bush run in and shower before heading home.

Relax overlooking the bush in the tent suite

Swim in the outdoor heated pool, with the great view

Hike in the Bowen Mountains, we did one through Burralow Fire Trail, down to the Burralow Picnic and Camping Site.
