Nu Leaf is a holistic wellness retreat located in the Hunter Valley’s lush wine region among bicycle tracks and leafy bushland. Awaken to beautiful bird song and then take a morning stroll through pretty vineyards and country lanes before starting your day of healing and pleasure.

The experience

Accommodation at Nu Leaf Retreat is comprised of eight rooms with twin and queen beds each equally well appointed and with its own private verandah overlooking the vineyard.

At Nu Leaf, you will enjoy a program tailored exclusively to your specific needs with realistic, achievable goals. The programs are strictly limited to a small number of guests so the team can spend more time with you to make your experience rewarding and fun.

There is one indoor gym, a 20-metre heated indoor mineral swimming pool and another outdoor pool, which has an elevated deck area looking out over the trees and the vineyard. There are two spa treatment rooms, a steam room and a jet spa.

The kitchen and dining area is a communal space that allows guests to relax, mingle and chat with the in-house chef about healthy eating.

Synthesis Bioactive Organic Personalised Facial

This treatment is a botanical journey of the senses. Firstly, your face, neck and décolletage are purified and then infused layer upon layer with certified organic, energy-imbued essential oils, plant extracts and bio-actives, rich in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants with proven transformative benefits. These precious gifts from the earth, ocean and beyond combine to boost skin cell renewal, increase collagen and elastin, tone, firm, brighten pigmentation and smooth away redness, congestion and fine lines and wrinkles. This results-driven facial restores your skin’s natural balance and healthy-looking radiance. Your youthful glow is renewed along with a deep sense of wellbeing.

This treatment combines all the benefits of the Bioactive Organic Facial yet with richer formulations, perfect for replenishing mature skin, with the Synthesis Facial Alchemy “natural facelift” technique and unique Azure gold cryotherapy to re-energise your skin.

Synthesis Organic Elemental Energy Transformative Facial

Australian botanicals from the ocean, earth and rainforest combine with Australian semi-precious gems and desert stones to deliver exceptional transformative benefits by harmonising the skin’s natural healing ability. Mookaite Jasper, Azure gold, granite and marble from the Kakadu and Pilbara regions are used in an expertly designed hot and cold elemental treatment that deeply relaxes, boosts absorption of the Synthesis bio-actives and renews your skin and senses, deeply restoring a sense of wholeness, balance and radiance.

The food

Nu Leaf offers full board accommodation, which includes food that’s nutrition focused and flavour driven, guided by an in-house chef who understands that the pleasure of eating — and eating well — is based around sourcing quality ingredients and allowing them to shine in their own right. The chef only uses sustainable seafood, free-range chickens, collects eggs from the hen house and chooses leafy greens from the kitchen garden in her daily menu planning. Her approach to food encourages guests to become reacquainted with the vitality of wholefoods and teaches them how to strike a healthy eating balance through regular cooking demonstrations.

All dietary requirements are catered for, but please provide advance knowledge so Nu Leaf’s team can accommodate your needs at ease.
