We are so delighted to share that our beautiful new wellness destination BODHI Yallingup won BEST NEW SPA AUSTRALIA 2022 at the inaugural Spa + Wellness Awards in Brisbane last weekend.
The Spa & Wellness Awards have been designed to recognise and celebrate the committed providers in the spa, wellness, beauty and travel industries. Quality, sustainability, innovation, and originality are the fundamental criteria of the Awards
BODHI Yallingup is an exquisite lake-side wellness retreat that works in harmony with the natural surroundings, delivering immersive holistic treatments, to indulge, restore and revitalise mind and body, and deeply care for your soul.
On the shores of Lake Gunyulgup, this tranquil location is unique. The spring fed lake was a traditional camping place and area of significance for the Wardandi Noongar Moort families, moving along inland and coastal trails. Fittingly for a spa, the word Gunyulgup means ‘place of rest’.
With custom interior design by Pattern Studio, the 520 square meter BODHI Yallingup features six luxury treatment rooms, five of which are couples’ suites, an infrared sauna, hydrotherapy baths, as well as a water-fronting yoga/meditation studio. A secluded relax lounge and spa terrace, also overlooking the lake, bring a deeper peace and serenity to the retreat.
“We are beyond excited to receive thE 2022 BEST NEW SPA AUSTRALIA Award. BODHI Yallingup is our most considered BODHI Spa offering yet. With a $2 million fit-out, every single detail has been thought of,” explains BODHI Founder, Tania Taylor.
“Nature has been integral to the layout and palette of BODHI Yallingup. Floor to ceiling windows and a water-fronting yoga studio, relax lounge and terrace, allow a palpable connection to the natural surroundings. Skylights bring natural light into a curved central corridor, and the neutral, warm palette is inspired by the pristine coastal Margaret River region, providing a beautiful sense of place. And the wildlife is abundant! Don’t be surprised to see kangaroos grazing at the lakes’ edge as you unwind on the spa terrace,” Tania Taylor added.
The BODHI Group has a tread lightly approach, and sustainability was a major consideration in the Yallingup spa build. Seventy-one solar panels on the roof meet the bulk of the spa’s energy needs, and a 220 thousand litre rainwater tank provides all the spa’s water. The landscaping surrounding BODHI Yallingup was carefully considered, with a range of water-wise native flora.
