Luxury Holidays At Spicers Sangoma Retreat

Tucked away in the foothills of the beautiful Blue Mountains, just an hour from Sydney but away from the madding crowds, Spicers Sangoma Retreat is an intimate and unique place to stay. Inspired by the African bush camps, and taken from the Zulu word for healer, Sangoma is adults-only and eco-certified and the perfect place to switch off from the world and reconnect with nature. Surrounded by Angophora gums and pristine bush in all directions, days are spent discovering the myriad hiking trails on foot or by mountain bike, or if you’re in search in more of a challenge try your hand at abseiling, canyoning, or rock climbing. More gentle pursuits are also available with wine and water colour classes, luxury 4WD safari, private yoga classes, and soothing meditation sessions. Relax by the glorious infinity edge pool, which boasts wonderful views including the Sydney skyline on clear days, dine on exquisite cuisine, and unwind in one of six sumptuous suites that boast floor-to-ceiling windows and private decks, bringing the outside in. Indulge with pampering treatments at Spa Anise or use Spicers Sangoma as a stunning base from which to explore the magnificent World Heritage Listed Blue Mountains.
