While an escape from the hustle of city life is often top of our fantasy to-do list, it’s not always feasible to head out to the country or book a trip to Byron. Stepping into the gap between yoga studio and luxury retreat space, Willow Urban Retreat offers spa, wholefood and holistic wellness services in Armadale.

In addition to yoga classes, Willow houses a bright cafe that serves up nourishing food and drinks. The breakfast and lunch menus might include kimchi scrambled eggs; sauteed mushrooms with greens, a poached egg and almond pesto on sourdough; and colourful nourish- and sushi-bowls. Salads are made with seasonal vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers providing ample reason to extend a spa visit into lunchtime. Add hot Market Lane coffee, smoothies, pressed juices and elixirs on the side.

The spa menu, meanwhile, includes massage, facials and a therapeautic infrared sauna, which uses a special kind of heater, rather than coals, to heat up the space. Visitors can become a member or swing by for a single spa session, class, meal or workshop. The light and airy complex is also available to hire for private events.

The Meme Design-created space is housed within two heritage Victorian buildings on High Street in the heart of leafy Armadale. It features sustainably sourced and toxin-free materials in the fit-out and installed air-purifying systems throughout the space.
