Just an hour’s drive from Adelaide in picturesque Port Phillip, you’ll find the ideal place to reset. Authenticity Health and Wellness has everything needed to revive both body and mind. From beauty therapies, massage, yoga and fitness, to counseling, naturopathy and medi-spa treatments, this is your all-in-one stop for taking care of you – which on holidays is the best thing to do.
A 19th-century manor converted into six soulful retreats, the whole space radiates a relaxed, earthy vibe. The rooms boast an eclectic mix of antiques and bohemian style. The communal areas include a pool to swim, hydro-spas to soak, a lounge to contemplate and café to nourish. Check in and choose activities at your leisure, or add a detox program, pampering pack or any customised set of inclusions when booking. There’s so much to do here, and it’s all designed with personal healing in mind. So consider your needs and choose what feels right – whether that’s taking time out and soaking up the calming atmosphere, or utilising all of the specialised services on offer.
The food here is a highlight, with a café and restaurant that serves up a menu of vegetarian and Mediterranean dishes, made with organic and biodynamic ingredients. The kitchen’s philosophy is to produce meals that are both wholesome and delicious, and certainly not everyday or bland.
While coming to a wellness sanctuary means you’ll want to make the most of the facilities, if you do feel like venturing out, the Adelaide location has plenty to see. Nature is a great cure-all, and this area is known for its wonderful outdoor attractions. The Basham Beach Conservation Park is walking distance away. Victor Harbor is close enough for a seaside stroll or spending the day at Coorong National Park. And while you’re in the region, why not visit Kangaroo Island? The ferry departs less than an hour away from Authenticity, and this iconic South Australian destination is definitely worth the trip.
