What We Do
“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples”
- Mother Teresa

— Susannah Crouch, caretaker and guardian of this piece of paradise
Waking up at Amara with the sunrise provides each day with a glorious moment of feeling lucky to be alive. Watch the mist roll over the hills and into the valley beneath the Main Retreat House as you take the path to the 100 sqm Yoga/Seminar Centre "The Heart Centre", which overlooks the expansive northerly view to the coast.
Allow your guests to slip into meditation as the sun peaks over the hills and the new day begins with renewed aspirations. "There is a vibration here that resonates visibly with our guests. You can see stress and tension disappearing immediately, even as soon as you drive through the gates at Amara".
The stunning Hampton's Style Retreat House offers outside areas for people to lounge and relax with light breezes and sweeping views to the North. The double daybed offering a cozy place for reading and several nooks and crannies for people to recede into privacy.
Walk the 44 undulating acres to be surprised by grazing Kangaroos and Wallabies whilst being serenaded by Kookaburras and native birdlife. A rock balancing garden provides another meditative space amongst lush riparian forests. Swim in the 4000 sqm sacred waterhole or repose in the 6 people steam sauna and a dip in the Magnesium Salt Pool to wash away any residual tension. Then, finish the day with the setting sun over the valley with a fire circle ceremony at our purpose built fire circle area. Reset, recharge and inspire.
Amara also offers two rustic cabins and ‘Ruby Baby’ a beautiful bus, all styled by the owner to give a sense of being enveloped by nature as well as a feeling of luxury bedding and cosy comfort.
Only 7 minutes away are the world famous Eumundi Markets operating on a Wednesday and Saturday. Eumundi is a thriving small village with several cafes and restaurants offering some of the best food on the coast. And, only 10 minutes drive away you can spend some time on one of the most gorgeous beaches on the coast at Peregian Beach.
Amara also offers a host of practitioners who can make your Retreat even more memorable by offering therapies, massages, surf lessons and adventure programs.
