Award Winning Lon Retreat & Spa celebrates 5 years of partnership with Australian owned holistic wellness and skincare brand Subtle Energies, unveiling it’s the first Spa in Australia and one of a limited few globally to launch Subtle Energies Advanced Vegan Collagen Facial on its new Spa Menu.

22 FEBRUARY 2024




On the back of winning ‘Best Spa Experience’ and ‘Best Hotel or Resort Spa’ at the recent Asia Pacific Spa & Wellness Awards, Lon Retreat’s Spa has welcomed a lucky few of its VIP guests & loyal clientele to celebrate the introduction of fellow award-winning local brand Subtle Energies’ latest innovation, the Advanced Bio Tech Range.

Enriching an already incredibly unique and highly regarded spa experience, the addition of the Advanced Vegan Collagen Facial onto Lon’s new spa menu provides a cutting-edge treatment that has been years in development.

Guests at this launch event were invited to celebrate the launch of new cutting-edge treatments and award-winning therapeutic offerings, whilst hearing the unique stories behind the two family businesses of Subtle Energies and Lon Retreat, as Nick Irani (Director of Operations & Brand Development, Subtle Energies), Claire Gemes (Owner & Manager, Lon Retreat), Daniel Hayward (Subtle Energies – Australia) and Jade Ogilvie (Spa Manager, Lon Retreat) shared their history and holistic approach to wellness.

In celebration of its 30th anniversary, Australian skincare brand Subtle Energies unveiled its bioactive aesthetic line which Nick Irani says delivers an instant “cosmetic look and feel, using only the best and purest natural ingredients, which in turn give you transformative results”.

Vegan Collagen Serum has been formulated with proteins that mimic human collagen to act as a natural filler and restore elasticity and plumpness.

Designed to help improve skin tone and moisture levels, Multi Molecular Hyaluronic Acid serum offers a broad range of molecular weights combined with pomegranate extract and kakadu plum.

Pomegranate Enzyme Mask includes active aromatics and botanicals and is intended as a gentle exfoliator.

The family-run company Subtle Energies, which specialises in combining aromatherapy and ayurvedic solutions, has also upgraded its entire packaging line to make it more sustainable and guests at the launch were able to look and experience all these new luxurious products with a gorgeous gift bag of Subtle Energies Products and Lon Retreat Gifts to take home.

The event concluded with incredibly fresh and wholesome salads by local business The XO Project alongside Lon Retreat’s signature farm-sourced grazing platter, laden with the morning’s farm pickings.

The synergistic vision and collaboration between Subtle Energies and Lon Retreat aims to enhance the wellness experience for retreat guests by incorporating Subtle Energies signature therapies with the beautifully designed surroundings and natural landscape of Lon Retreat, set on 250 acres of rural and conservation land by the ocean.

Together we aim to create a sanctuary where guests can truly step away from the pressures and stress of the outside world and immerse themselves in a journey of self-discovery and rejuvenation. A place to truly slow down.
