Having researched the market and analysed the demand for a Wellness Retreat specifically for Community Service men and women including their families, the following development is proposed to ensure that should the Wellness Retreat be developed it will be financially sustainable in the long term. The retreat will incorporate facilities such as gymnasium for exercise, a pool for relaxation and activities such as yoga, conference facilities, restaurant cafe, organic farming, organic food retail outlet, cooking classes and workshops.
The aim is to create and develop an affordable Wellness Retreat in an environment where there is an ambience of tranquillity, a place where they can recharge and have a renewed zest for life which will become a model for other carers retreats in Australia.
The optimum number of rooms from an operational aspect is 120 new chalets.
Furthermore, the rooms will have the following aspects:
- Room sizes – 30 to 50 square meters with dual key for flexible room arrangements
- Serviced villa style layout
Permanent accommodation for professionals
As there will be provision for onsite professional help such as physiatrists and nurses including management staff, the selected site contains 4 existing homes where these professionals can be accommodated.
