Feeling a little chilly?

You’ll have plenty of opportunities for retreats this winter and you might just need them, if the current weather is any indication of what’s to come.

You can escape to the warmer weather on the northeast coast of Australia or even as far as the Dominican Republic… should you be so lucky! You’ll find beautiful beaches, tropical rainforests, and an amazing selection of retreats, from wellness to photography.

Or you can go further south and recharge your batteries by snuggling up in a cosy winter spot, where you can immerse yourself in pampering, spas, wellness activities, mindfulness, good food, and fun.

Here are a few of the fantastic retreats listed at Retreat Me Happy:
