Our Thailand active tours were such a huge success, we’ve decided it’s time to do another active retreat closer to home.
We are staying strong with our 5 star activity based mini retreat, focussing on health and fitness based activity….but with great food and wine too!

Our team of professional trainers and instructors will motivate and challenge you during your daily group or personalised activities, regardless of your fitness level. We can tailor a program to suit you based on your specific individual goals.

Our retreats are active, fun and all about creating balance.

Yes, our active retreat will be held at the very well known Toms Cap Vineyard Retreat, in picturesque central Gippsland, Victoria.

Toms Cap Vineyard Retreat, is surrounded by the lush forests of the Strzelecki Ranges, (perfect for hiking) the ninety-mile beach at Woodside (perfect for beach HIIT) and the natural flora and fauna of the Tarra Bulga National Park ( just perfect really! )

This location is going to be hard to beat for our activity work outs, wine tasting, dining in the 5 star onsite restaurants and meeting like minded people in a relaxed and amazing  location.
This is how we do our luxury ‘real world’ bespoke retreat. Work outs and wine tasting. Life is all about balance.

Detox and Design Tour -Phuket Cleanse Thailand- November 2016

Detox and Design Tour -Phuket Cleanse Thailand- November 2016


Summer in coming.

That reality often sparks Summer body panic in most of us. It’s now that we scramble to get motivated and shed the winter layer that ever so quietly creeps on. Get ready for less clothing, warmer days, and if you’re like me, the agony of the annual swim wear purchase.

Well, what if I could tell not to panic. Stay calm, and it will all be fine.

I can. And it starts right here with Wanderlust Luxury Travel, in conjunction with Phuket Cleanse, and our ‘Design and Detox’ Tour to Thailand.


Phuket Cleanse is the world’s most exciting health retreat!  I know for a fact, because I was a guest there earlier this year and really changed my whole attitude to health and fitness. It was amazing.

The Phuket Cleanse package is all inclusive, and this November, it also includes the never done before Design Element, at no additional charge.

You package includes absolutely everything – accommodation, food, cleansing protocols, fitness classes, detox master classes, transportation, excursions, laundry, 4 evening massages per week, and complimentary airport pickup.

Once you have flown into Phuket you need not spend another cent whilst you are there.
It is very flexible and you can arrive at any time of the day or night, on any day of the week, for the duration that suits your travel plans.

In November, the Interior Design team from White Chalk Design,  will be heading over to Phuket Cleanse to consult on the upcoming renovation and makeover of the current villa and retreat facilities. So we have decided to incorporate a “Design” element into the amazing current cleanse and fitness program. Design and Detox is born!


The Design Element  

You can join us as we shop for the furniture, art and accessories in the local stores and shopping districts.

Learn the art of creating a beautiful functioning bathroom, whilst staying on budget.

How to choose the right tiles, cabinetry materials and fixtures for wet areas.

What is the best paint colour in dark rooms versus lighter rooms.

How to arrange furniture, hang art, and when to use special feature lighting and other bespoke pieces.

Come with us and learn the skills to enable you to design and manage your own renovation at home. Watch and learn as we do site and spatial plans, then arrange concept sheets and imagery for the re-design of the villas.  We can then bring 3D colour concepts to life in the construction phase.

The Design Element is scheduled during  various times in the day, so it won’t interfere with your training, yoga and fitness programs. You will be able to join in on all activities, at your own pace.

It will be very relaxed, informative and most of all, lots of fun.



The Health and Fitness Element 

Experience the Raw Food Lifestyle!

Your chefs in the Phuket Cleanse Raw Food Laboratory will create for you mind blowing dishes that will stimulate your every taste bud. What’s more exciting is they will teach you how to do the same in your raw food cooking classes. You will indulge in a menu that will get your body into peak operating condition.

Each day the kitchen creates the most beautiful raw food cuisine – unique masterpieces some say. They rarely make the same thing twice unless it is a guest favourite. The raw food menu is second to none. It is comprised of fresh organic vegetable and fruit juices along with raw foods that naturally detoxify and assist in restoring the optimal function of the digestive system. We will work with you to tailor your nutritional program to fit your goals.

Fitness Goals 

Your fitness program is designed to allow you to play in your body every which way and
discover the workouts that make your body sing.

At Phuket Cleanse you create your own personal fitness program from any of the one-hour daily group exercise classes. There are many to choose from:  you can attend workouts from a diverse range of cardio, strength, and flexibility classes. Beach classes, hiking, boxing, TRX, HIIT, kettlebell, running, stretch classes, core strength ..the list goes on and on. And the variety is huge.

Plus..the timetable runs all day. From sunrise until sunset and then into the night. Plus…there are nutritionists, personal trainers, life coaches, wellness coaches, onsite supplements and vitamins, O2 therapy, infrared saunas, massage therapy, cooking classes, ice baths, bikes plus a beautiful pool and relaxation area.

Yoga Time

Bikram Hot Yoga. Haha and Yin Yoga. Aerial Yoga. Power and Astanga Yoga. Partner and Acro Yoga. Beach Yoga. Sunrise and Sunset Yoga.


Whatever your yoga style, you can experience it all here. Or, it is the perfect time to try something new. I loved aerial yoga when I was at Phuket Cleanse earlier in the year. It was really incredible. And something that I am so glad that I learned to do.

When you meditate in the group meditation, you will experience of ‘quantum coherence’. When a group meditates together, they achieve a group synchronized brainwave state, a potent state for prayer, sending love, and doing manifestation work.

Stand Up Paddle Board in the ocean.

Wander down to end of the street for a mani – pedi, or more massage and beauty treatment options. (Cost not included, but very reasonably priced.)

Mid Week Inspiration…Green Smoothies

I may be a little slow to get on the green smoothie bandwagon..but I can finally say..Im now on board. My daughter started making them for breakfast last week..and I was tempted to try..and pleased with what I tasted. I have tweaked the recipe a little, by adding some coriander which I think I could eat .. and now.. drink with just about anything!

I posted the smoothie pic on Instagram and had requests for the recipe..so here it is..feel free to add your own mix to it and keep me posted with the options..I would love to hear what you guys add..


I am super busy every day..and I really think this new green friend is a healthy and energetic booster for me. I have been drinking it after working out and I do feel better. Less stressed. I aim to make this juice 3-4 times a week, and so far so good.
