The Hotel: Ananda Rainforest Spa
Ananda Rainforest Spa is a secluded eco-haven nestled in the green heart of the Currumbin Valley. Designed for adults only, the strictly vegetarian/vegan spa offers two accommodation options, the Tree House and Architectural House. The on-site day spa offers a range of revitalising and wellness services including massage, facials and far-infrared sauna sessions, while the surrounding rainforest provides unparalleled opportunities to appreciate and commune with nature.
Designed with sustainability in mind, the accommodation boasts wooden accents, breathable textiles and raw stone walls. Plenty of space is available for guests to unwind, with several calming zones available in the lodges to enjoy some chill-out time.
Indulge in blissful pampering treatments at the onsite day spa, which offers everything from massages to facials, body therapies and complete spa packages. Those seeking more active pursuits might hike through the national parks of the Currumbin Valley, while others simply kick back in the cottage with a cup of tea and a good book. Visitors fall asleep at night to the sounds of the rainforest outside, with the stresses of city life far behind them.

The Area: Currumbin Valley
The Currumbin Valley is just a short drive from the hustle and bustle of the Gold Coast, but it feels like another world. With tranquil, misty rainforest surrounded by soaring peaks, it’s no wonder the valley has become one of Australia’s premier relaxation and retreat destinations.
Explore the Southern Gold Coast hinterland via a short drive along Currumbin Creek Road, swim at the surf beach at Currumbin or delve deep into the Green Cauldron by taking the World Heritage-listed rainforest walk at Springbrook National Park. The Ecovillage at Currumbin provides an opportunity to stop and refresh at the Three Figs Cafe, meet some locals and shop for handmade souvenirs at the Greenbird Gallery.
Currumbin Valley is approximately 30 minutes from the heart of the Surfers Paradise, where holidaymakers can enjoy golden sand beaches, boutique shopping and gourmet food. Alternatively, spend whole days at any of the theme parks in the Gold Coast area, such as Dreamworld, Wet ‘n’ Wild or Warner Bros Movie World.
