In the middle of Bryon Shire is the former timber town of Mullumbimby, a quaint colonial village surrounded by creeks, rivers and coastal forest. The ‘Biggest Little Town in Australia’, with its laid-back feel and beautiful location, has become a relaxation spa hub, making it the perfect place for a rejuvenating escape.  

Dedicated to purification and revitalisation, Mullum Sari Health Retreat & Medi Spa is one of the best in the area: we check out the wellbeing haven, offering a selection of healing, detox and anti-ageing packages. 


Located in the countryside of Mullumbimby, New South Wales, Mullum Sari is situated approximately 20 minutes from Byron Bay. The retreat is two hours from Brisbane Airport, one hour from Gold Coast Airport and 30 minutes from Ballina Byron Gateway Airport.

Mullum Sari has three accommodation options: standard ‘Brahma’ rooms, superior ‘Saraswathi’ rooms, and luxury ‘Shiva’ rooms. All rooms are suitable for single or twin share and have king-size beds or single bed options. Mullumbimby is a country town and the aesthetic of Mullum Sari reflects its rural surroundings. Quaint with a capital Q, the lodgings are within a colonial-style cottage known as ‘The Manse’. This isn’t a five-star resort, but the retreat’s relaxed ambience and homely character exudes a friendly warmth that makes up for the lack of upmarket amenities.

Food Programme

Detoxing is the main focus at Mullum Sari, which means many guests are fasting and much of the ‘food’ comes in liquid form. If you’re on a cleanse, the daily menu includes macrobiotic vegetarian broths, fresh cold pressed juices and health supplements. For those not fasting, yummy, fresh, ‘living’ (raw) food is available.

Treatment Programme

Mullum Sari has a three-day ‘Cleanse’, a five-day ‘Detox’ and a seven-day ‘Healing Week’ package. Packages include daily colonics, massages, body scrubs, lymphatic drainage, hydrotherapy, infrared sauna sessions and guided health coaching. They also offer a special one-day ‘Bliss Pack’, which includes five hours of indulgent pampering. The retreat’s medispa offers a number of innovative therapies such as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (inhalation of 100% oxygen in a pressurized body chamber), and ‘Endermologie’ treatments (a noninvasive technique that reduces cellulite by naturally reactivating cell metabolism), including lipo massage and endermolift.


Expect to feel…cleaned from the inside out. This retreat is ideal for those looking to kickstart a diet or reset their system.
