Solar Springs is situated on beautifully landscaped grounds and the buildings nestle into the greenery. We were greeted by the friendly staff and shown to our rooms. I had a lovely, light filled spacious room to myself overlooking the gardens. The room was a great size, with its own bathroom and chair by the window.
It was my first real feel of Autumn as the air was cool, the leaves were falling and the heating and fires were on. The rooms were all cosy and the public areas were set up for lounging and relaxing. There were 2 main rooms. 1 - the quiet room overlooked the bush and was where you could read, do a puzzle or some other quiet activity. The second main room had lots of lounges, a little kitchenette with tea and coffee available at all times, a fruit bowl to snack on and was the place to catch up with everyone between activities or as a meeting spot.
After my walk around the grounds and into the tiny town of Bundanoon I tried the Flexibility class in the gym.
We then had lunch (wraps & salad) in a relaxed haze and got ready for our trip back to Sydney. It was amazing how time seemed to stretch out and it felt like I had been away for a few days as I had got to sample various activities but managed to rest up as well.
Solar Springs is an easy 2 hour drive from Sydney or you could catch the train to Bundanoon station and be picked up by the staff at Solar Springs.
I think it would be perfect for a Mother/Daughter getaway (ideal Mother's Day gift), a small group of girlfriends or even a relaxing weekend with your partner.
Can you see yourself taking a few days away to rest and recharge?
Have you done so before?
