Wow, I've been past this place plenty of times with work but never actually called in until now when I finally got back here with my partner on my own time and glad we did. Friendly welcome and an impressive line up of all things sandalwood. Took a quick tour with one of the friendly girls who told us all... More

We called by as we love Sandalwood however our experience was so much more. Me, my husband and our 9 year old son all opted for the gong sound therapy. Wow. We all really enjoyed it, feeling relaxed and dreamy all day. Will definitely not be our last trip. Staff were all lovely and helpful, and not in-your-face or forceful... More

I seriously love this place. From the moment you step out of your car you can smell the sandalwood aromas. As you enter, the fragrance permeates the air and leads you in to explore further. The products are very good quality made with 100% Pure Organic Sandalwood which is sustainably grown in Western Australia. I use quite a bit of... More

After my first experience of "being gonged" about 15 years ago, it was wonderful to have a return experience. $39 and partner free. An hour well spent. Free tour was of course great value for money 😉 Lunch in the cafe was very tasty and good value. A wonderful way to spend a winters afternoon.

I recently pulled off the highway on my way back to Perth from a buisness trip in Albany. It was 10.30 am and the cafe appeared to not be open so looked around the shop. There are lots and lots of products on display from average priced creams / soaps to expensive pieces of beautiful wooden art. I did not... More

I've been to Mount Romance twice now and I just love this place. The moment you get out of the car you smell the Sandlewood. I just love their soaps the smell is just amazing, a hopeful little tip if your prone to the odd mozzie bite or two Sandlewood is a natural deterent. A must see 👍🏻👍🏻
