2-night Signature Wellness Package at Crane Lodge

Sydney, New South Wales

If you are looking for the perfect place for a wellness weekend with friends or family, Crane Lodge, on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, is it. This secluded five-bedroom sanctuary is immersed in 360 degrees of lush greenery and feels a world away from the city.

You’ll ascend to this beautifully appointed ‘treehouse’ through a native garden and arrive at your light-filled retreat with views to the ocean through a green canopy of endangered gums. The spacious rooms, gorgeous interiors and bespoke artwork provide an immediate sense of serenity.

This experience includes an introduction to Forest Bathing, or ‘Shinrin-yoku’, helping you to be present and connect with the healing power of nature. Your guide, Mayumi Kataoka from Forest Minds, will lead you gently through the garden with mindful movement, breathwork and a grounding tea ceremony while sharing her knowledge of Japanese culture. You’ll also enjoy an invigorating yoga class on the purpose-built deck and a nourishing 3-course meal prepared by a private chef.

Then spend some time cosying up by the fire pit, relaxing in the heated magnesium pool, soaking in the outdoor cedar hot tub, or hanging out in a hammock. After resting well each night and waking to beautiful birdsong, you’ll feel refreshed and revitalised.
