Orpheus Island Luxury Wellness Retreat

Watch Teaser

Leave the world behind and take the retreat of a lifetime, on a luxury private tropical isle set in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Slip into island-time as you journey by boat (or helicopter) across the glistening Coral Sea to our secluded and unspoilt paradise for 3 glorious nights of yoga, meditation, breath-work, snorkelling, hikes, sundowners and incredible food.

Your 3 night all-inclusive retreat at Orpheus Island Lodge will be an unforgettable and life-enhancing experience. Orpheus is engulfed by 1000 hectares of pristine national park and surrounded by fringing Great Barrier Reef Marine Park waters, accessible just steps away from your dreamy beachfront accommodation.

For the food lovers, Orpheus is a destination where guests can enjoy ‘chef hatted’ restaurant meals at every course. The culinary team delivers an award-winning feast celebrating a bounty of wholesome, island grown, patch-to-plate seasonal produce and freshly caught seafood from the local waters. Your tastebuds will delight at the riches of the region.

After a day of exploring the island, relaxing by the pool and learning profoundly healing tools to enhance your wellbeing, you are invited to watch the sunset with the day's signature cocktail and sample some of Australia’s finest produce over dinner.

This is a once in a lifetime, exclusive retreat not to be missed. Places are limited to just 13 rooms so be quick and secure yours today!
