Welcome to Tivoli Retreat

A space of nurturing bliss for Body, Mind & Spirit

Arrive to find expansive views over the green rolling hills of the valley, which immediately evokes a sense of peace, stillness and calm.

Tivoli Retreat is a modern boutique style retreat designed specifically for cleansing and relaxation. Overlooking the pristine green valley of Cedar Pocket near Gympie, the Retreat offers luxurious tranquillity. With only four spacious rooms, each with private en-suites, peace and quiet is assured.

Our daily routines are designed to maximise your time for rest, relaxation, inner reflection and to receive KaHuna massages. Tivoli provides a space where you can adopt some long-lasting healthy habits, to ensure good health and well-being into the future.

Getting to know your hosts . . .

Food, exploration and fun are Luke‘s mantras in life. At home cooking up a storm in the kitchen, wood fired oven or on the BBQ mixed with his Italian heritage and passion for great food, is one of his favourite pleasures.

Luke loves hitting the road in Australia or overseas to secluded camp sites or places that never sleep. Soaking in the atmosphere of an incredible sunset either alone with his partner or howling with thousands.

Luke discovered KaHuna and Mette’s Institute in 2016. It was a life changer for him leaving the building industry and finding himself, literally – mind, body and spirit.

What he brings to Tivoli Retreat is a combination of his love of cooking with the ingredients of self discovery, the elements of nature, a smile on ones face, a heart full of love and the beautiful massage that is KaHuna.
