If you’re looking for a true escape, one where there are no crowds or queues to contend with, where only the stunning natural views and gourmet menus vie for your attention, then a stay at a Spicers Retreat is a must.
Nothing replenishes the soul and rejuvenates the spirit quite like a holiday spent enjoying the outdoors, especially when it involves soaking up the luxurious ambience of a stylish retreat. Spicers Retreats delivers on all these fronts.
Situated on enormous tracts of private land, Spicers Retreats are a true oasis.
From your inviting lodge suite, you can enjoy views of the scenic Blue Mountains at Spicers Sangoma Retreat, walk along the picturesque vineyards at Spicers Vineyards Estate in the Hunter Valley, or leave the beach crowds in the sand with a trip to one of Spicers’ properties in the Sunshine Cost hinterland, Clovelly Estate or Tamarind Retreat.
In South East Queensland, you can leave the heat of Brisbane behind. Less than an hour outside the city, Spicers Hidden Vale offers all kinds of country charm. Set in the rolling hills near Grandchester, guests can explore beautiful bushlands and lovely gardens. There’s even a Spicers refuge to get away from the bustling crowds of the Gold Coast. Located in Queensland’s beautiful Scenic Rim, Spicers Peak Lodge overlooks the lush region from its mountaintop perch.
Regardless of which Spicers property you stay at, guests will find common features at each, chief among them, a commitment to style, comfort, service, and perhaps most welcome, five-star dining.
