Here is a list of five vacation places owned by some of the most revered names in entertainment. Who knows, you might run into them on the way to the pool.
Hugh Jackman’s Gwinganna Health Retreat
The actor’s first-ever visit in this spa sanctuary left such an impression that he ended up being a co-owner. This wellness retreat is set atop a hill in a picturesque valley of Australia’s Gold Coast and offers various spa treatments, facial treatments, outdoor activities, stress therapy and more. And for guests to really completely take a break from the stress of their everyday, Gwinggana does not offer television or Internet access so prepare to hold your Instagram posts until after you’ve exited the premises.
Took myself away for the weekend to the gorgeous #gwingannalifestyleretreat ??Spent the weekend meditating, brainstorming and thinking in solitude. JSHealth, you guys, mean so much to me. I felt I needed time to brainstorm how I can take JSHealth to the next level and continue to inspire all of you. I'm so proud of you and the way you are all changing, transforming and cooking such beautiful and wholesome food. You inspire me and motivate me to continue sharing my journey. Thank you! #healthretreat #gwinganna
