My new husband and I went to this wonderful place for a much needed break and some time together. What we found was a small slice of paradise only an hour away. The grounds were beautiful, the villa was luxurious, the food was delicious, the massage and hot springs were relaxing and the staff were delightful. We can't recommend this...

My husband surprised me with a night here for my birthday after I showed him the beautiful pictures on their website. It was perfect from beginning to end! The suite...

I stayed here in July 2011 as a birthday gift. It was probably the most luxurious accommodation I will ever stay in and was absolute indulgence. The heated floors were such a great touch especially with it being winter. I had the dine-in Thai dinner and it was suburb, personalised service, yummy food, bought straight to the room.

Staying at the Balinese Retreat was an absolute highlight during our trip to Australia. It was better than the Internet pictures show and just an amazingly beautiful stay. Debra, the owner, has a keen sense of design and detail. We noticed and appreciated each and every detail. Debra told us that she designed the resort thinking about what a bride...
