Last November, I blogged about the out-of-this-world-amazing experience that was the Scenic Rim Trail by Spicers. But what haven’t yet blogged about was that our final evening of the trail was spent at the Spicers Retreats flagship property – the ultimate in luxury. Now, with Spicers Retreat‘s Make Room for Romance competition running until 31 May 2015 (you may have seen the breathtaking billboards or Facebook posts since the campaign started last month) I thought that there couldn’t be a better time to share the opulence that is Spicers Peak Lodge.
Warning: this post contains serious sumptuousness, styling splendour and of course #foodporn. It may even make you want to enter the draw to win 1 of 6 romantic getaways. Simply sign up to the Spicers mailing list, nominate a deserving couple (and yourself of course) and you could be whisked away on a romantic trip for two to one of Spicers‘ magnificent properties.
Here are all the reasons why Spicers Peak Lodge is the ultimate luxury getaway…
Cows and calves roaming the luscious green meadows, an infinity pool calling your name, the soft grey shadows of the Great Dividing Range in the distance and the sweet sound of silence…
The lodge itself is a truly magnificent piece of architecture, with an exterior grandeur of understated minimalism – wooden frames and reflective glass windows that stretch from the perfectly manicured lawn to the tiled slanting roof. First impressions make your heart skip a beat – but the interior practically takes your breath away. Part French chalet, part Colonial-style mansion, there is a guest lounge, a formal dining room and a small (but of course well stocked) bar downstairs with guest rooms, a reading nook, billiard table and suspended walkway leading out onto the front balcony above.
Book. A. Massage. Trust me. No matter what property you stay at, the Spa Anise experience is one you must partake in.
The Small Luxuries (and quirks)
Chocolates on your pillow, goodnight brownies, a bath with a view and cute quirks that make this boutique hotel feel like home.
Amuse-bouche by the bar, a five course set menu with matched wines (Chef’s personal recommendations of course), a breakfast buffet with fresh rhubarb if you’re lucky and speciality coffee that will make you want to retreat to the lounge for a second and third cup.
