Luxurious accommodation can be a challenge for some when planning a honeymoon. But I may have found just what you are looking for! Spicers Peak Lodge, nestled on a mountain top in Queensland’s scenic rim, is a breathtaking lodge that ensures all your cares will just melt away! Showcasing some of the country’s most picturesque scenery and World Heritage-listed rainforests, Spicers Peak Lodge is surrounded by six National Parks making it ideal for avid naturalists, hikers or newly weds looking for somewhere to just completely unwind.
Serenity and fresh air is what Spicers Peak Lodge is about. With nothing but green undulating hills, billowy gums, eucalyptus and the odd cow or two lazily grazing, here is where you can come to truly unwind and get back to nature. Whether you want to lounge by the pool, play a friendly game of tennis, or a spot of lawn games with a glass of Dom Perignon in hand. There is a cosy loft where you can bunker down for an afternoon of board games and cards, and of course this would involve red wine and an array of local cheese (well for me anyway!) You can take a guided hike or a helicopter flight to check out the breathtaking scenery – or simply stroll hand in hand around the property exploring the local fauna and flora with a gourmet picnic to feast on along the way.
But maybe you just want to spend an entire day getting pampered. Spa Anise is where one comes to relax and rejuvenate – isn’t that what honeymoons are all about? This stunning spa offers single and double treatment rooms, slippers, robes and only the best locally owned and made spa products by Waterlily. After a day of taking in the region’s organic beauty the spa is the place to wind down.
The surrounding area boasts an abundance of boutique and gourmet food, wine and craft beer thanks to its rich volcanic soil. The Peak offers the best seasonal tastes of the region. With your choice of á la carte or full degustation menus to tantalise your palettes all complemented by local wine, the award-winning fare is beyond sublime!
Spicers Peak Lodge has four suite options available for every type of couple. From loft suites to a one bedroom private lodge, this is the millionaire lifestyle! The private lodge was indeed my pick! A cozy 83 square metre intimate lodge perfect for couples wanting a little more privacy and finesse. Featuring a king size bed, Bemboka blankets, marble bathroom, wood fuelled fireplace perfect for laying in front of with a glass of mulled wine and your own private outdoor infinity spa, it also features an outdoor lounge and Bose bluetooth speakers, just to name a few. The only uninvited visitors on your doorstep here will be cute and furry rock wallabies.
