Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat in Queensland is the first Australian spa to win Best Global Luxury Destination Spa, in the 2015 World Luxury Spa Awards.
Based in the UK, the annual awards recognise leaders in all areas of spa across the world and this year received a record number of almost 40,000 votes.
“For Gwinganna to receive this global recognition is a significant milestone for Australian spa and wellness,” says Sharon Kolkka, General Manager and Wellness Director.
“Gwinganna is a complete wellness experience designed for guests to slow down, relax, nourish and re-energise away from the distractions and responsibilities of a busy lifestyle.”
In addition, Gwinganna was recently awarded Australia’s Leading Spa Resort in the 2015 World Travel Awards at a ceremony in Hong Kong; while in September, it won Best Wellness Spa Oceania and also Best Wellness Spa Australia in the 2015 World Spa Awards.
Located in the scenic Tallebudgera Valley hinterland of the Gold Coast (12 km from Burleigh Heads beach and 20km from Gold Coast Airport) on more than 200 hectares, Gwinganna offers programs from two to seven days or longer, specialty spa treatments, delicious organic cuisine and extensive facilities including the Spa Sanctuary, the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.
