This was exactly the stay I needed! Sanctuary is the perfect word for Manuela’s beautiful space at The Tirhatuan Sanctuary. The moment I walked in I felt the tension from my body go and knew I was in a warm and welcoming place. The decor in her home is incredible and you feel very much immersed in nature.
Not only is the home surrounded by trees and a wonderful thriving garden, but you have the mountain ranges nearby. There is a golf course across the road where we went for a wonderful sunset walked and Manuela shared her extensive knowledge of the area.
Manuela can also cater for guests and the food was amazing. I was offered champagne on arrival, teas and hot drinks at regular intervals and there were always snacks at the ready. I was given a nourishing soup for dinner and a lovely fresh breakfast of juice and avocado on toast. All for a very reasonable additional cost. The food and drinks are all vegan, and although I’m not a vegetarian or vegan, I didn’t feel without. It was delicious and refreshing. You’ll never go hungry here.
I’m often travelling to Melbourne and will make this a regular stop. It’s a bit further out but after a busy few days of work nearer the city, it was exactly what I needed. I left feeling rested, fresh and generally calmer. Highly recommend the Tirhatuan Sanctuary for a relaxing retreat and getaway.
