Frequently Asked Questions
Will I have to share a room?
Tivoli has 6 spacious rooms, and each room has its own ensuite. During the Tivoli Cleansing Retreat we only sell rooms so it is for you to decide if you would like to share this retreat with a partner, or friend or enjoy the retreat by yourself.
Do I have my own bathroom?
Each bedroom has it’s own large en-suite.
How many massages should I get?
We recommend booking in for as many massages as you can during your stay, at least a daily massage to help with the winding down/relaxing process as well as supporting your body to cleanse.
What type of food is it?
Our meals are all lovingly prepared using organic or spray free fresh produce purchased from a local market. The meals are all wholefood plant based with a smoothie for breakfast and a soup for lunch and dinner. We don’t use any animal products or grains.
What is a KaHuna massage?
KaHuna massage originated in the South Pacific and was used during Rites of Passage as a transformational massage and healing system. It is also know as Hawaiian Temple Style massage and Lomi Lomi.
This beautiful form of massage provides a holistic approach to healing by balancing the body-mind in its physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions.
KaHuna massage is unique in a number of respects. The practitioner uses their hands, forearms and elbows and moves around the table (using flowing Hula an Tai Chi style movements). They work with energy to apply soft and deep tissue massage. Music is played and the practitioner attunes the flow of the massage to harmonise the various rhythms within the client’s body, mind & soul.
At Tivoli Retreat all practitioners have qualified, after in-depth training with Mette’s Institute at High Spirits Retreat and your practitioner will have extensive massage experience.
Do you have an age limit?
Tivoli Retreat is an adults only retreat, so guests need to be 18 or older.
If I am flying interstate, how do I get to the retreat?
Our closest airport is the Sunshine Coast Airport (also called Maroochydore), which is an hour away, otherwise guests can fly into the Brisbane Airport, which is approximately a 2 hour drive.
There are a couple of different companies that you can contact regarding airport transfers from the Sunshine Coast Airport or the Brisbane Airport that we know about, there may be others if you google it.
Con-X-ion (https://www.con-x-ion.com/) will do a return transfer for both the Sunshine Coast Airport and Brisbane Airport for approx $90 return (will drop you off at the bus station in town and we can collect and drop you off).
Activ Tours & Transfers (https://activetransfers.com.au/) charge approx $110 return for the Sunshine Coast Airport or $160 from the Brisbane Airport and drop you off at the retreat.
Otherwise you could catch a train to the Gympie North Station and we could come and collect you from there.
Is there WiFi at the retreat?
We encourage our guests to have a screen detox during their stay. To take this opportunity to disconnect from the busy overstimulating outside world and honour this precious quiet time to themselves. To take the time to connect in with themselves, to feel into their bodies, quiet the mind and connect in with their inner wisdom and guidance.
