As you roll over the ridge and down into The River, the property’s slogan, “down to the river I go to lose my mind and find my soul” makes perfect sense. The River is a slow, sustainable soul filling retreat experience. Consciously designed to support people in disconnecting from hustle and reconnecting with themselves and what matters through attuning to the rhythms of nature and engaging in daily ritual. Sarah, a yoga teacher and nutrition coach, has taken decades of a slow, low tox, conscious lifestyle and channelled it into this unique offering.

In the post pandemic world many of us are recognising the value of regularly retreating. There’s a move away from hectic travel itineraries, any sort of crowd and constant availability to the outside world. People are looking for an antidote to their busy days and fried nervous systems, not an extension. That antidote? Slow stays.
