Hey Gang. Does the idea of walking around the city at midnight in a pink bridal sash, drinking out of a phallic straw make you shudder? You’re not alone. So when The Shed Gerroa launched a ‘Rejuvacation’ Wellness Retreat (an awesome weekend of pilates, beautiful food, massages and, of course, champagne) we thanked the good Lord for showing us what a modern hen’s weekend could be. Plus, our team has experienced this beautiful wellness retreat first hand and can happily confirm, it’s amazing.

This tranquil beach and farm escape accommodates eight guests and sits high on the lush hills of Gerroa, with rolling views down the ocean. It’s a location that’s made for relaxation. The property comes with a fully equipped kitchen, as well as an outdoor BBQ, indoor wood fireplace and outdoor firepit, plunge pool (sh*t yes), and plenty of space to chill and connect. Read on for more info or find the full details here.

If that hasn’t sold you just yet, the ‘Rejuvacation’ Wellness Retreat comes with a bunch of incredible inclusions that will leave you feeling pampered and healthier than ever, thanks to these brilliant people – MORE BODY Pilates Activewear, Arabella Hampshire, Louise Loader, Renee Vanhoff from Soul Revival Spa and Nicole Vardanega, a Chinese Medicine Practitioner. Read on for more info.
