Sequoia Lodge, Adelaide Hills

If you’re willing to spend a pretty penny for the ultimate in absolute luxury, it is impossible to beat this location which is immaculate on all fronts.

The indulgent, adults-only accommodation is a relatively new fixture in the region and boasts unparalleled views of the Adelaide Hills from its beyond-spacious rooms. Get cosy by the room’s fireplace, relax with wine on the deck and embrace the views.

Or, do we what we did while visiting, and take full advantage of the spa-like bathroom complete with freestanding tub and a high-tech shower with multiple tap features. (Months on from staying there, we still can’t get it out of our minds.)

But seriously, look at those views!




Mount Lofty House, Adelaide Hills

Located on the same premises as the Sequoia Lodge, Mount Lofty House has been an Adelaide Hills favourite for special occasions for years. The romantic, boutique venue was built way back in 1852 by an affulent statesman before later becoming popular with locals and tourists. Just 15 minutes’ drive from Adelaide’s CBD, Mount Lofty House features stunning views and plays host to the three-hatted fine dining restaurant, Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant. This spot is ideal for spoiling yourself and your significant other with the wine and culinary delights South Australia is famous for.




Thorngrove Manor, Stirling

What’s more romantic than a castle? Enjoy the fairytale honeymoon of your dreams without resorting to jetting off to Europe. The picturesque and secluded Thorngrove Manor is the epitome of a private couples’ getaway. There are no communal spaces for guests, meaning you can enjoy all its features including its inviting rooms and impressive fine dining as though you have the manor all to yourselves.




Lifetime Private Retreats, Kangaroo Island

You’ll feel worlds away from real life and the responsibilites and obligations that come with it with your honeymoon getaway at one of Lifetime Private Retreats’ luxury houses and villas on Kangaroo Island. Don’t take our word for it though, one look at the photos of the view and you’ll be sold.




The Vineyard Retreat, McLaren Vale

Soak up the scenery (hello, endlessly beautiful vineyards!) with a stay at The Vineyard Retreat in South Australia’s McLaren Vale. The luxe accommodation contains a private deck and a jacuzzi among its enviable features. If you ask us, that’s a recipe for romance.
