Thank you for a most amazing stay. This time in your stunning retreat has helped me change and begin to love my life and me again, and that I deserve to be happy and to let go and forgive. My heart and my body feel free again. I catch myself smiling more for no reason.
So much gratitude for such epic healing! The space was just gorgeous, and being surrounded with so much love and light has left a very warm peace in my heart. I have had my morning meditation and feel radiant! With heart smiles for miles.
I had a wonderful 5 days retreat with Nickie was in February 2019. The facilities were excellent and the food was delicious. I was a novice re Triyoga and Open Heart Meditation, Nickie took this into account and helped me get the most out of each session. I also experienced the Healing massages and the Heart Based emotional clearing therapy. I would recommend them. Thank you Nickie for helping me get "unstuck" and moving forward. I also lost a few kilos weight at the end of 5 days as well. Thank you for such a wonderful time at your retreat these past few days. I very much appreciated your personal touch and certainly left feeling I was in a different place spiritually and physically from when I arrived.
Our stay at the Beautiful O Retreat was very memorable. Fantastic facility for such events. We totally relaxed and felt at home. The in house massage service is worth the investment. Thank you Nickie for being a wonderful host. We will be back for more Drumming and Yoga! Magnificent views of Bruny island and the Channel. Plenty of room for our 12 guests.
We had a wonderful 3 nights at the O Retreat! Nickie was such a wonderful host and the retreat was so peaceful and relaxing that we didn't want to leave. The view is stunning from every direction and feels really fresh and open! The kitchen has everything you need and the dual fireplace makes the space extra warm and toasty. The location is perfect if you are looking to explore the Southern end of Tasmania or even a day trip out to Bruny Island. It also isn't far from Hobart too! We would highly recommend The O retreat to anyone needing a few nights to unwind in a beautiful part of the world.
‘I was fortunate enough to be able to attend the O Retreat for a weekend retreat package.I would highly recommend to anyone who loves yoga and or meditation or who is just looking for a unique and relaxing experience. Nickie is kind, friendly and a great cook. We left feeling very rejuvenated and can’t wait to go back. The accommodation itself is amazing and worth a stay for anyone who may not wish to do the yoga retreat.We can’t wait to go back. Thanks Nickie’
The energy in this home and its surroundings are healing for the soul. A divine retreat and I want to be back there already. We were there for a family holiday ... excellent for both a small or a big group ... big well equipped kitchen ... nature all around us. Simply splendid
Just spent 2 nights away mid week in the amazing O Retreat - a stunning delight of a place that is tucked away in the hills down south overlooking the beautiful waters of the D'Entrecasteaux Channel and Bruny Island. WOW!! The view in itself in a 360 almost around the home, was magnificent but the home too was just stunning and extremely comfortable and easy to be in - beautiful décor, airy, light, fantastic kitchen, lovely spa, great bed (we only sampled one!), clean, awesome fireplace, magnificent dining table - everything was just lovely. My trip was "couple" time for which it was lovely but I can imagine sprawling out with other couples or family too and having an amazing time without being in each other's pockets! I highly recommend this place - minimum of 2 nights, wish we had more time to have had at least a 3 or 4th this visit. Really very lovely - it didn't disappoint at all!!
I recently ran my businesses first ever BurnTheory reset health and wellbeing 3-day retreat at the O-retreat with 10 clients. The owner was fantastic and helpful, ensuring I had all the information I needed and being very accommodation to particular requests. She also provided amazing oil massage and reiki on request throughout the retreat! The space was perfect- warm, cozy but spacious, and the views were incredible! Plus it had all the amenities of a top quality hotel.I would recommend the O-retreat to anyone looking for a beautiful place to stay that feels like an escape but isn't too far from Hobart.5 stars!
The O Retreat was absolutely lovely and Nickie was a great hostess! I was there with family, so we weren't necessarily "serene" but we had the most amazing time nonetheless. Beautiful house and surroundings perfect for relaxing. We spent a lot of time watching a family of wallabies under the house, playing games, cooking, and driving out to explore Tasmania.
It was just incredible. A small paradise in Southern Tasmania. Would recommend to anyone. Only regret that we couldn't stay longer.
I really can't rate this place highly enough. Nickie's home is just exquisite, with incredible views and an amazing view. She has put a lot of thought into catering for your every need, from beautiful robes, to bath crystals for the spa, filtered water, breakfast basics. The reiki session I had was fantastic. My only regret was that we didn't get to see more of our host. Will be back for sure.
My friends and I (two couples) stayed at the O Retreat... Nickie made our trip so special and we are so grateful for the 3 days we've spent there. We loved Nickie's beautiful, warm, and heart-felt nature and her revitalising energy (she led us in yoga, meditation and I had an insightful reiki session). The property is also so amazing - stunning outlook, luxe comfort, alignment with the earth, and an indescribable peace and balance. I would recommend this beautiful retreat to anyone, and so you all know - we would have kidnapped Nickie but we thought the world's better off with Nickie (light) shared! We are definitely planning to return to Tassie BECAUSE of the O Retreat some time soon...
We really enjoyed the O Retreat Centre's beautiful warm welcoming space with lovely views. Nickie is a great host, very caring and as a Yoga teacher, was sensitive to the needs of our group. We enjoyed a very quiet and peaceful weekend.
