Relax and recharge in the Swan Valley

20 November 2018

By Rachel Seeley

With beautiful wide open spaces, fresh country air, and endless opportunities to wander among natural and historical settings, it makes sense that people are turning to the Swan Valley to find their zen.

Whether you want to escape for a few hours of me-time, be pampered on a girl’s weekend away, or take a few days out to really unwind, the Swan Valley has everything you need to recharge. It’s time to take a deep breath and find sanctuary, just 25 minutes from Perth.

Float your worries away

Imagine immersing yourself into 600 litres of soothing body temperature water, packed with 450 kilos of magnesium salts, and floating in complete peace and quiet. At Float Swan Valley, you can do just this. Tucked away in the beautiful grounds of Novotel Vines Resort, Float Swan Valley offers pure relaxation in an effortlessly luxurious environment. 

This welcoming spot is home to two state-of-the-art float tanks, including WA’s very first black pod. In the private pods you can relax and let go. Your mind will enter a peaceful state of relaxation and your body will feel weightless as the darkness, quiet and buoyancy create an experience unlike any other.  

A float is a great way to relieve stress, pain and tension, find relief from anxiety and depression, boost creativity, improve sleep, and assist with athletic recovery. With its luxurious surroundings, impressive attention to detail and welcoming atmosphere, Float Swan Valley offers an unbeatable opportunity to relax.

Breathe and stretch

More and more people are turning to yoga to relax the mind and the body, combining physical poses with meditative thoughts to find deep relaxation.

Common Earth Studio is a boutique yoga and wellness studio nestled in the heart of Guildford. Within the beautiful historical venue, Claire teaches yoga classes that can either challenge you or give you the space to just be, making this studio an incredible place to unwind and reconnect. 

Find peace and connection with your own breath in an energising Vinyasa flow class that evokes the rising of the sun, a grounding Vinyasa flow class that’s comforting like a cup of chamomile tea, or a nourishing, gentle and slow-motion Vinyasa flow practice with a restorative finish.

Pamper yourself  

Within the sprawling grounds of Brookleigh Estate, the French inspired chateau of Brookleigh Swan Valley Day Spa is a haven of complete relaxation.

Treat yourself to some indulgent me-time, take time out with your besties for a day of pampering, or reconnect with your partner by booking a romantic couples package. This beautiful, calming spa has a fantastic menu of beauty treatments, facials and massages to choose from, but if you’re looking for the absolute pinnacle of indulgence, you can’t go past their 3-day, 5-day or 11-day wellness retreats. These escapes, which can include yoga or Pilates, nutritious food, a customised fitness program and spa treatments, will make you glow inside and out. Add in restorative bushwalks, boutique accommodation, meditation and the use of the pool and spa, and you really couldn’t ask for more.

Soak in the serenity

All of your troubles will melt away as you take in the incredibly serene setting of the luxurious Swan Valley Retreat. This secluded getaway provides the perfect opportunity to relax and reflect while surrounded by nature.

On a beautiful property close to everything the Swan Valley offers, this boutique retreat feels like it’s a whole world away. Two deluxe king rooms, each with a large executive bathroom, solid stone freestanding bathtub and balcony, look out over the rural property featuring natural waterways and large open spaces, home to friendly alpacas. Wander around the tranquil property, take time out to reconnect, or treat yourself to an unforgettable massage, facial or hydrotherapy treatment. 

This beautiful getaway the city is something truly special. It can be all-inclusive, with the food of the Swan Valley easily available, a tennis court, and a unique wine barrel-shaped sauna befitting of the Valley. All the little touches make Swan Valley Retreat a wonderful experience, but it’s the tranquillity of the place that will leave you in awe.
