We had an absolutely wonderful time at the Balinese retreat celebrating our first wedding anniversary. Had the whole place all to ourselves and we were amazed at the thought and detail put into the Balinese house and also the beautiful gardens and water features. Great dinner and massages, lovely private pool filled with mineral water, and the mosaic spa bath inside the villa with a fern garden view was totally indulgent! The DIY breakfast with a bento box filled with all the ingredients to cook up a gourmet breakfast along with freshly baked bread delivered to our door in the morning was a really nice idea too.
The bedroom was so comfortable and how often can you wake up to the view of your own private waterfall?
We felt like we were far far away from Melbourne and left feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
A perfect getaway for a special occasion, worth the price.

Thanks again to Deborah and the team.

Wow, what an experience. I booked the proposal package for one night and what a treat it was. My now fiance' was mesmerized by the experience from the layout of the balinese house and garden to the lake by the walking bridge to the massages that put us to sleep lolz and the tasty dinner inside a romanticly furnished balinese hut. Great experienced and awesome vision from yours truly, Deborah.

Thanks for making this possible.

We had the pleasure of enjoying this retreat for our anniversary and it is an unforgettable experience . Its hard to believe that you are actually only 45 mins from Melbourne . Everything is perfect , and we both said that we were the most relaxed that we have been in ages! The massage is amazing, and the Thai banquet is awesome . We sat by the lake having a drink and enjoying the dips and nibbled that are included in the package . We felt like we were in Asia ! Yes, its expensive , but so,so worth it ...

Booked one night in the Balinese Retreat in August as a surprise birthday present for my girlfriend.
I speak for both of us when I say it was truly one of the most amazing days either of us have ever had.

The couple massages upon arrival; the stunning villa with music playing and rose petals on the bed; the champagne, chocolate and strawberrys next to the ready fill spa; all amazing. The huge Thai banquet which was delivered to our door was honestly some of the best food we've ever had.
We're both very active people and i don't think either of us has ever been so relaxed for the whole day; we didn't have a care in the world. The detail and effort which has gone into making this place what it is, simply has to be experienced to be believed.

I proposed after dinner by the private lake under the moonlight; how could she say no!

I agree on the face of it's not cheap, but for a special one-off occassion I would recommend this in a heart beat, with no hesitation. I can't stress how much we loved our stay.

I found this retreat to be very romantic and very private, it was like we were the only ones there, and thats what we needed. The massage was just perfect on arrival and the food was beautiful and plenty of it. The view from the bedroom was to die for and the view out the back was just beautiful. The pool area was private and secluded and a beautiful place to relax and just kick back.Staying there with my beautiful partner was a wonderful experience and would have loved to stay there longer. Thank you Deborah. Shane and Deb
