Nine Perfect Strangers

Retreat featured in Nine Perfect Strangers available to book on Airbnb

Audiences captivated by the new hit series Nine Perfect Strangers, streaming weekly on Amazon Prime Video and starring a cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Melissa McCarthy and Asher Keddie, can book the wellness retreat where most of the series was filmed on Airbnb. 

Filmed on location in Byron Bay, and based on The New York Times bestselling book by author Liane Moriarty, Nine Perfect Strangers takes place at a boutique health-and-wellness resort that promises healing and transformation as nine stressed city dwellers try to get on a path to a better way of living. Watching over them during this 10-day retreat is the resort’s director, Masha, a woman on a mission to reinvigorate their tired minds and bodies. However, these nine “perfect” strangers have no idea what is about to hit them.

The breathtaking 10-bedroom ‘Soma’ luxury estate, in Byron Bay, NSW, is portrayed in the series as Tranquillum House – the health and wellness resort where nine stressed out city-dwellers gather with the aim of changing their lives for the better. 

The eight-part series is produced by the teams behind Big Little Lies and The Undoing, and is now exclusively available to Amazon Prime Video members in Australia and New Zealand.

Set on 22 acres of lush bamboo forest with thousands of varieties of plant species, Soma boasts a warm yet modern aesthetic thanks to the use of natural timbers and floor-to-ceiling windows. 

Soma is tucked away in the hills for optimum privacy but is just a 10-minute drive to the Byron Bay township and a range of incredible beaches and surf spots. Features include a freshwater infinity pool, communal fire pit, a central dining area that seats 16 people and its very own geodesic yoga dome ideal for group practice. 

The brainchild of technology entrepreneur Peter Ostick and acclaimed wellness and meditation practitioner Gary Gorrow, the property has been designed as the ultimate sanctuary away from civilisation, where guests can optimise health and wellness. 

Soma is available as part of Airbnb’s Luxe offering, which boasts a selection of pristine, expertly designed homes with high-end amenities that must pass a meticulous 300-point inspection. Guests at Soma can also choose from a range of extras including meditation courses, breath and bodywork sessions, Ayurvedic meals prepared by a specialised chef, housekeeping, pantry and fridge pre-stocking and airport transfers. 

Soma can be booked through Airbnb here. For more information, head to somabyron.com.

Nine Perfect Strangers is now available on Amazon Prime Video with new episodes launching weekly.
