What we offer
Our wellness services are specifically designed to nurture and support you during your unique wellness retreat with us.
The only choice you need to make before you arrive for your retreat is to decide whether you would like to gain the many healing benefits of a detox and fasting retreat or have a nourishing retreat, enjoying the lovingly prepared nutritious meals during your stay here with us.
The rest of your retreat program is taken care of for you after an initial assessment session with Arvind on your arrival. In any case it will include a daily one-hour session with Arvind as well as the use of all our facilities.
You'll have access to Arvind at all times throughout your stay, who resides at the retreat, as does retreat coordinator Rachel Batchelor. The extent to which you interact with your hosts depends on your preference.
Detox and Fasting
Our Detox and Fasting program is safe, easy and one of the most natural ways to restore your body to it’s optimum state of health.
Our recommended pre fasting diet will gently and gradually prepare your body for your upcoming fast.
Throughout your fasting retreat we will make sure that you maintain a good and healthy energy level. Freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, organic where possible along with our own blend of natural herbs and supplements are offered three times a day to help you achieve this.
Ample attention will also be given to ensure that your body is supported in releasing toxins stored in your body in order to keep you feeling at ease and comfortable. Mild exercise, saunas, spas and a daily bodywork session will all assist you in this process.
Gentle guidance, support and supervision will be available on hand throughout your retreat to ensure that you fully relax and enjoy your unique healing and rejuvenating experience here with us.
At the end of your retreat we will recommend a post detox and fasting diet to help you ease back into your normal eating patterns.
Our Detox and Fasting retreat will leave you feeling lighter, clearer and more inspired about your health and wellbeing.
Our meals are lovingly prepared according to our principles of a balanced and nutritious diet. The emphasis in our cooking methods is on using fresh wholesome ingredients, carefully prepared to retain their natural goodness, while also enhancing their taste and flavours.
If you have any specific food allergies, sensitivities or preferences we will take these into account while planning our menu each day.
Meal times at Pujjis are special times. This is when we all come together in our cozy lounge and dining area. Often wonderful, stimulating conversations and interactions take place around the dining table leaving special memories.
Our Bodywork combines the science of structural integration with the art of holistic body/mind healing traditions.
In a typical Bodywork session, careful hands on manipulations of the connective tissue will be employed systematically to bring your body back to its natural state of balance and alignment with gravity. This will ease any symptoms of discomfort and pain you may be experiencing. The injuries and traumas of the past held in the tissue of your body will be released in the process and your graceful, natural movement will be restored.
Bodywork will experientially demonstrate that your body is an expression of who you are and how you respond to the world around you. It will bring into light the unconscious attitudes and patterns of behaviour at the root of some of your physical discomfort and stress.
This awareness will enhance your ability to change and modify your way of being in the world. Re-educational lessons are an integral part of Bodywork, offering you tools for the ongoing enhancement of your health and wellbeing.
Our Heart Matters offers you an opportunity to explore your inner world as well as that of those you love by creating a safe and non-judgmental environment for you.
Using mindful and compassionate communication skills you will be guided to gain greater clarity and understanding of yourself and others. From this place of greater awareness you will discover empowering new resolutions to the familiar old conflicts in your life. You will find renewed inspiration for loving and living with an open heart as well as gaining powerful tools to enhance your communication skills.
The profound benefits of your own realisations and learning will naturally filter into the lives of those around you.

Back in July 2009 I was diagnosed with throat cancer. This led me down the path of surgery, radiation treatment and chemotherapy. After six months the outcome, while successful left me somewhat altered in my wellbeing. Not only was I affected by this experience but so too was my partner. It became quite apparent that we both needed time out. This led us to discover Pujjis. This truly was a magnificent discovery, not your normal 4.5 Star Retreat, but from the moment you stepped into the premises, a home style retreat, oozing warmth and character and an energy found very rarely in accommodation requirements. With support form the staff, the next ten days were ours to relax, unwind and rest. Complimented with nutritious meals and an outstanding, unique style of body treatment, addressing alignment and breathing patterns our needs were met. If your ambition is to improve your health, find your inner self again, then stop, consider and just maybe you will find Pujjis retreat is just for you.
Bernie and MelNSW, Australia
We would both like to thank you for the wonderful time we spent at Pujjis last week. When we discovered Pujjis on the internet, it looked like the sort of place that would be able to assist us in reconnecting and rediscovering each other. What really surprised us, was that Arvind was so easily able to assist us with that. For us, our time with you will always seem magical, you have a very special place that gave us sanctuary from our busy life, time to see what was right in front of us and the most amazing nurturing environment. We have returned to our lives with open hearts and open minds, and, as each day passes, we can see the difference in ourselves and each other. As Arvind told us, those around us have already seen the difference in us and things have changed for the better without any effort or work from us. We find that amazing. We feel we can now embark on the rest of our lives with the knowledge that together, we can grow stronger and have a healthy marriage. So, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. You will hear from us, and see us again.
