Amarant Retreat rests in 25 acres of magical temperate-rainforest on Mount Ben Cairn in the Yarra Ranges National Park. This natural environment surrounded by forest, wildlife, walking tracks and meandering paths is an ideal place for hosting a variety of programs with flexible hire options.

Conveniently located 70mins north east of Melbourne, Amarant is your ideal venue for workshops, corporate and yoga retreats. We invite like-minded groups to use our facility to offer their own retreats, workshops, intensives, courses or master classes for small groups of 8 to 20 guests.

Our Celestial room  is suited for groups of up to 25. This room overlooks the valley and provides an ideal space for yoga, meditation and workshops. The room is equipped with Zafu and Zabuton (meditation cushions), yoga mats and blocks, whiteboard, stereo system and under floor heating and reverse cycle air conditioner to keep you and your guests comfortable.

Amarant offers 7 luxury suites for your guests to refresh each night. The rooms can accommodate 1 to 4 guests. Each room is supplied with GROWN ALCHEMIST organic products and luxurious linen and towels to enhance your Amarant experience. There is a separate facilitators apartment, which includes your own kitchen, living area, wood fire and balcony.

Catering for your event we can supply you with one of our Chefs, or you can self cater in our fully equipped kitchen; which includes Vitamix’s, juicers and food processors – you won’t need to bring your kitchen with you! If you supply your own Chef we would like the food to fit into our philosophy of a mainly plant based vegetarian diet. Amarant and its neighbouring property Arcadia has a seasonal organic vegetable garden which you are welcome to harvest from throughout your stay.

Your guests can enjoy an organic cup of PUKKA tea in one of our sunken lounges with fireplaces or sit out on one of the outdoor balcony’s and enjoy the amazing views.

We look forward in welcoming you to an Amarant Retreat experience.
