We stayed here for two nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Rooms were spacious, it was great to have a fire place in the room, breakfast was lovely and Carolynne was a great host. We also enjoyed the massages in the day spa. It is located almost next door to St Berards hotel which is handy but is about 15... More

My sister and I drove out to Escarpment to each have a 1hr Body Bliss Massage. When booking our massage, the lady on the phone to start with was not particularly pleasant. All she took was my name and my credit card details for the booking. There was no confirmation email, text or phone call. The retreat itself looked really... More

High ceilings, comfy bed, comfy sofa. We stayed in Villa 4 right at the end. Place was quiet and peaceful - perfect for a getaway from the bustling city. It has a natural fireplace, something I do not get to 'play' with normally. Breakfast was awesome.

This was one of the dream hotel I wanted to go since last year. It's a bit pricy, but since I am a member on booking.com, I got 10% off. Loved the high ceiling in the villa and we purposely went in in August hope we can enjoy the fire place, which we did! Staff is very friendly and they... More

It was the second time my boyfriend and I visited this retreat and it was clear why we chose to come back again! The villas are just beautiful, they are cleaned daily while you are out and they are just the right size. Totally enjoyed having fires each night while it rained outside and hearing it on the tin roof... More

We didn't stay here, but drove up for the day for a massage and champagne lunch. The massages were fantastic!! Yes, the 'day spa' isn't really a day spa - but the quality of the masseuses makes up for that! Oh, they really got into our knots!! We then ventured out to 'the edge' and had a wonderful champagne lunch.... More

I really enjoyed my escape at The Escarpment this past weekend. It was a lovely retreat to relax and enjoy some downtime for a few days. The villa was very comfortable although a little dark but this was expected with the winter sun set lower in the sky. The food was delicious, staff very polite and helpful and the location... More

Lovely large room but shared wall with next door villa does create noise issues . Privacy not 100% guaranteed either as guests are encouraged to tour the gardens so anyone might pop by your window at any time. This means shutters and blinds tend to remain closed which does make for a very dark room. Wood burner fire is cute,... More
