Getting to know your hosts . . .

Dee is a bright a bubbly person who has a passion for good food, travel, different cultures, nature, reading books, KaHuna massage and holistic healing.

When not at the retreat she shares her life with her lovely partner Luke in Pomona on their bush block of land with their ducks, chickens and their fruit and veggie garden.

She is a lover of crystals, tarot cards, art and you can often hear her melodic voice singing a beautiful tune while preparing a delicious meal in the Tivoli kitchen.

“Whatever causes night in our souls may leave stars.” Victor Hugo

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’s partner introduced him to KaHuna and Mette’s Institute in 2016 through her learnings. It was a life changer for him leaving the building industry (sort of) 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.

What our visitors say about Tivoli Retreat

Wow, I came home from Tivoli Retreat a few weeks ago, feeling like a new woman after 3 incredible nights at this deeply healing and restorative retreat. The divine Sankara was my host and what a host she was! So attentive, nurturing, loving, warm and honouring of your time and space. I met such beautiful women during my stay, and left feel grounded, balanced and centred within myself. I had the great pleasure of having 2 heart felt Kahuna massages from the heavenly Sankara, and what is this Goddess powerful. Her massages were sublime: nurturing, deep, soulful and restorative. I floated off being so loved and seen.

If you are ready to infuse yourself with love, to allow more love into your life then Tivoli Retreat is for you xx

Just returned from a retreat with Sankara and Dee, two beautiful and genuine hosts who put their heart and soul into your well being. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to slow down, reflect, set goals, kick start a new habit, lose weight, relax, defrag or simply pause.

Such a beautiful space to reflect & refresh. I was blessed enough to spend 5 wonderous days at the retreat & am already excited for the next visit. I have come back to reality feeling like I can overcome any obstacle or challenge & with such clarity. Thank you to the most amazing Dee & Sankara, you two really are beautiful souls that will forever hold a piece of my heart. Till next we meet, stay happy & may you continue to share the love & laughter that you offered me on my stay. My soul honours your souls. Forever grateful.

This was just what I needed. Dee and Sankara are so beautiful and welcoming.
As soon as we arrived I felt a calmness and energy that only got deeper and deeper over the weekend. It was so lovely to just “be”. The food was amazingly delicious, the rooms were extremely comfortable. 2 kahuna massages in 2 days was heavenly.
I returned home a much nicer/relaxed person glowing from the inside out.
Thank you gorgeous ladies…. I will be back!

Wow!! Thank you Tivoli for an amazing retreat. Full of everything good. Feeling refreshed and energised. Thank you Dee for looking after me, you are wonderful. Dee, you make the best smoothies and your soups are divine!! Looking forward to my next retreat at Tivoli!! Xo

It was a ‘sensational’ morning! Full to the brim with sensations – the heat of the sauna, the exhilarating plunges in the icy, cold magnesium pool, the magic of Dee and Sankara, the release of self then the surge of the spirit … truly rejuvenating. Thank you.

What an absolutely amazing place. Thank you Sankara and Dee for the most relaxing, reenergising experience I have ever had. Not one thing is better then the other from the atmosphere, the food, the magnesium pool, the sauna to the scenery. I have never been so nurtured, comforted and loved. The kahuna massage is the ultimate experience. I cannot wait to return. With love Ann

I spent 2 incredibly peaceful nights at Tivoli Retreat. If you want to rest, relax and recharge this is the place for you. Peace and quiet is exactly what I needed. Book a KaHuna with Sankara. She is amazing!

This place is amazing. Sankara and Dee made the experience so relaxing and rewarding. Such a beautiful place to have time for yourself mentally and physically.

Thank you Dee and Sankara for an amazingly relaxing and rejuvenating day x Lauren and I will definitely be back xxx
