I need help finding a place to stay for a month while i kick alcohol, develop healthy eating habits and learn about exercise. I don't have unlimited funds, but I can pay whatever I need to. Anywhere in the world but the further from Australia, the more expensive the airfares.

In no particular order, the place should be
In a natural setting
Have single rooms
Be health focused (eg not a spa for beauty)
Not allow alcohol or tobacco
Serve all meals
Meals nutritionally sound (not pancakes and cream)
The place should not be/have
A focus on unproven health fads (drinking own urine, homeopathy)
A focus on spirituality (like AA)
A focus on status / fashion / luxury
Forced sharing (group therapy for example)
Forced violent exercise - no, I cannot run, ever, and I'm pretty sure aerobics are out too.
I would like to learn how to use a gym, and be supported gently in moving from completely sedentary lifestyle to a more active one but I respond badly to being yelled at.
I am not asking if I should do this. I want to do this, so I'm here to get help in selecting a good value place that meets my needs. Also, I'm sure someone will think of something that I haven't, and I will learn something.
