Ideally situated close to world famous beaches, Hinterland markets and villages, 400 metres from the world famous Chenrezig Budhist Institute, 10 minutes from Australia Zoo, The Ettamogah Pub, and 3 golf courses, Alaya Escape allows you to venture out and then quickly return to the mountain top hideaway and all of its indulgences. Truly a perfectly situated mountain retreat. Whether it be shopping, winery tours or dining opulence or a 'burger' and a cold beer after surfing a morning break, 'retreatists' can have it all and still escape back to the mountain top oasis we call home. Should you choose to stay in, however, Alaya Escape offers an abundance of peace and quiet, as well as romantic, personal development, spiritual development, celebration and reconnection opportunities for you. Have a swim or a spa next to the fireplace, sit around the pool in the Bali hut or pavilion and soak it all up with a cold drink, some chosen tunes and someone you love and you may just about reach self-indulgent bliss!
We believe strongly in the importance of living life in a balanced, harmonious, free and joyous manner, yet this can be extremely challenging in this fast-paced commitment-meeting society we all live in. We are blessed in that we are able to help change our world one person at a time and our vision is to continue providing special experiences for people who have the courage to invest in themselves as the priority. Here at Alaya Escape, we have developed both this incredible environment, built with the concept of "coming back to you" in mind, as well as interventions and professional networks which will help facilitate profound personal changes in you and bring you back to balance. We love having people come here and enjoy themselves completely, almost as much as when people decide to come here and make lasting and significant change in their lives. We offer personalised individual and small group retreats and have been involved in supporting profound growth in many couples and individuals. We are happy to talk about special occasions and encourage enquiries into small functions that require that special touch in an incredible venue. We often cater for small functions, occasions and events of up to 10 people (staying overnight) and more for day events.
