Stories and Testimonies from our Guests


I came to Cedarvale a bundle of stress and left on cloud nine. It was four days of bliss. The location amongst the lush forest with waterfalls and wildlife is so beautiful! The food is outstanding, it was like eating a delicious rainbow. The treatments are divine. I had a Swedish and therapeutic massages, Power Glow and hot pack super treatment. They helped to work out the stress and tightness in my muscles and improved my immune system and circulation. Dr Darren Morton’s healthy lifestyle program is excellent – he gives you all the information you need to flourish. Was impressed with the research Cassie did around my goals, it was very helpful. Cedarvale is a five star retreat. Would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to relax & improve your health.

Paul Z

Amazing health retreat in a great location with great walks hillside views in a valley and friendly staff. Mostly non profit so great value and the cooking classes and well being videos are eye opening without being too long. Best part of the stay is you get a daily 1hr treatment of choice inc massages etc .

Cedarvale is a wonderful retreat with genuinely caring staff, magnificent food and a range of therapeutic treatments to suit your needs.
Not least, of course is the magnificent natural environment with native animals and birds, ferns, palms and cedar trees.
Highly recommended for anyone who feels exhausted, jaded or worn down by the stresses of everyday life.

Jenny Hunter

Had a fabulous experience at CEDARVALE. Left feeling very relaxed with a renewed outlook on life. Everyone makes you feel very welcome from the beginning. A special thanks to Andrew and Jennie, Greg, the chef, best vegan cook I have seen. The wonderful treatments and the daily health talks. The walks were challenging for me but I managed a 2 km walk daily , listening to the wonderful sounds of wildlife . I highly recommend Cedarvale and would go back in a heartbeat.
Cannot complain about anything. 5 stars.

Dagmar Kelly

Wonderful place to relax, recharge and reset. Unique rain forest location, daily spa treatments and nourishing food combined with warm, helpful and knowledgeable staff.

Daniella Gonzalez

I spent 5 nights at Cedarvale and it was the perfect place to reset and regenerate. The entire team are so welcoming and supportive and you will feel at home right away. The property itself is amazing, with so many nature walks and trails, their own waterfall, lots of wildlife and so much more (did I mention the stars in the night sky - OMG ? ). Greg the Chef makes amazing food - whole food and plant based, Andrew was a lovely host and Jenny and entire team with their treatments, education classes and general support were just fabulous. The rooms are comfortable and the amenities (including the Spa Pool) are great. I highly recommend spending a few days here to unwind, recharge and restart your health journey. I am looking forward to a return stay.

Brett Hood

Our stay in March / April 2022 was exceptional. We met some wonderful people, other guests and staff alike.
The program was eye opening to say the least, it was life changing.
We could not recumbent Cedarvale highly enough.


I came away from Cedarvale feeling so relaxed and refreshed. The people that run it are very beautiful and down to earth. The food is great and overall it was a wonderful experience. I will be returning again next year.

Deidre Walker

Arrived at Cedarvale to a serene and welcoming environment. It was a wonderful 5 days but the real appreciation kicked in when i was driving home. I have reset and reprogrammed and i feel fantastic. This will be one of my annual breaks each year and i look forward to returning

Amber Lark

Cedarvale offered a place of quiet contemplation, education and peace. For anyone seeking a positive change in their health, sleep or stress levels, look no further.

Simon SLASH” Hicks

UNBELIEVABLE!! Driving through the rainforest I was greeted by the sublime birdcalls of the Lyre Bird. I sat and listened to them for hours each day. The walks are amazing (I wish I took my mountain bike) the air refreshing, the food was off the dial and we even got a chance to try our hand at cooking from the amazing menu book... THEN, theres the pampering. Lots of treatments and evening foot massages. (How does one return to normal???) It was the perfect break I needed from my daily routine and to try something out of my comfort zone. I have now incorporated many of their teachings into my NEW day to day. I cant thank the amazing staff enough. I will see you again soon.

Kerrie Jarius

Wonderful retreat, thanks to all the kind and friendly team. Also to Greg the amazing vegan chef that gave me a new perspective on tasty vegan food. A fantastic recharge!

keith broos

Everyone made you feel welcomed and encouraged you. The staff are extremely friendly and caring I enjoyed my 5 night stay and would recommend it to everyone. The room I had was great easy to unwind and take in the spectacular views of the wildlife and fauna. Thank you to the team at Cedarvale you have helped in kick starting my new lifestyle.

Luke Sommen

Exquisite property and lovely people, that make your stay feel even more special. The fresh rainforest air mixed with daily spa treatments, forest walks and activities plus wholesome food. A lovely break away for the city dweller to digitally disconnect and reconnect with nature. I highly recommend dipping into both waterfalls on the property and enjoying the night time fauna safari. All thumbs up!

Elaine Maatouk

Such an amazing, relaxing, wholesome retreat. Came here just wanting to relax and wind down from a big year, and got exactly what I wanted plus more. The staff are so amazing, they go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. Everything they do is well thought out. The rooms are nice and comfy, the food is delicious, all plant based whole foods but so filling, the treatments are amazing and really good, especially the massages. The actual grounds themselves are beautiful, daily walks are a must do. They also run educational programs, which are not compulsory, but are really great and informative, teaching about healthy lifestyle choices. The nutritionist and life coach (all included in the price) are also great and tailor a program just for you. Really worth it. Amazing job guys!

Suzanne Johnstone

I can’t recommend Cedarvale highly enough! One of the best decisions for Self-Care I have ever made for myself.

The staff were AMAZING (professional, compassionate, caring and non-judgemental), the food was delicious, the daily treatments were so good (I’m still missing my daily pampering!) and I’ve continued with the programme and have lost around 4-5kgs in 2.5 weeks and am alcohol and caffeine free for 18 days at the time of writing this!

Only complaint I have is I only had 5 days there. Next time it will the full 12 days…

What a wonderful place to start my “re-set” !!!


An excellent health retreat run and staffed by very professional, helpful, kind people who genuinely want you to be well and happy; nothing is too much trouble. Everyone was wonderful, but a special thanks to Julie and Jolie, whose helpfulness and positivity is inspiring.

There is a quiet, friendly atmosphere. Rooms are very comfortable and all recently renewed and redecorated.

Exceptional, delicious plant-based food, with two cooking lessons offered as part of the retreat. Talks on diet and lifestyle also offered, but no pressure and no judgement.

Massages and other treatments (eg spa, sauna and wraps) are part of the program.
All in a beautiful rainforest setting with delightful walks.

Igor Mirkin

I cannot thank enough all the staff members at Cedarvale Health retreat for bringing my mind and body back to life. After only 5 days of healthy vegan eating, full night sleeps, divine bush walks amongst beautiful waterfalls and ever watching bush animals and birds such as kangaroos and Lyra birds, fresh air and sunshine as well as saunas, spas, water jet massages and contrast showers plus very informative talks and seminar style videos I’ve felt very very rejuvenated. I’ve not felt so alive in years. I’m definitely coming back for more. ??????

Just came back from the 5 night retreat and what an invigorating experience it was! Beautiful and secluded rainforest setting, excellent food, homely interior, relaxing treatments and refreshing walks. What makes this place so unique though is the friendly Cedarvale team. They are contagiously positive and upbeat to the point where you cant help but feel the same.
Thank you Julie, Kaysie, Greg, Jolie, Kate, Andrew, Jenny & Raymond!
