How many of us need a break from reality? Just for a minute, it would be nice to be able to stop, breathe and learn how to break away from this cycle and reconnect to our conscious minds. The New York Times bestselling book Nine Perfect Strangers by Liane Moriarty, and now a Hulu original TV show, perfectly encapsulates this premise.
In the show, nine "perfect" strangers come together to attend a 10-day retreat at a health and wellness center with the goal of transforming their minds and healing their pasts. The owner of the retreat, Masha, works with these nine people to bring life back into these stressed individuals. Throughout their journey to enlightenment, there are unexpected turns waiting for the characters at every corner.
Although, if you are anything like me, all I could think about while watching the show was how beautiful the house is. Thankfully for us, that luxurious house is finally on Airbnb. The house, named Soma, features 10 bedrooms,10.5 bathrooms and goes for $4,351 a night; perfect for a large gathering of your favorite people.
The Soma house is on 22 acres of rainforest in Ewingsdale, Australia, allowing for a vast majority of activities that guests can partake in. At dawn, utilize the facility’s yoga dome and rise with the sun, nothing will feel better than being one with the earth. After your workout, treat yourself to some coffee or tea and sit out in one of the many lounge chairs by the freshwater pool. In the afternoon, head to the beach and pick up surfing or even go out diving along the beautiful coral reef.
Not only will this trip be a once in a-life-time experience, but the owners of the Soma house, Gary Gorrow and Peter Ostick will make sure that you become one with yourself again. The space is ideal for a retreat to work on fostering mindfulness using the skills of meditation and yoga. After years of working your butt off, you willwant to jump at this opportunity of tranquility before it’s all booked.
