Our Stay At The Vineyard Hotel

Well, a mountain facing room at The Vineyard Hotel is a very special experience! Watching the sunrise while sipping coffee in bed, was a real treat! (Not to mention breakfast in bed!)

How beautiful is the view from our room.

I totally indulged in a local favourite every morning, Charlotte Rhys. That zesty shower gel & body lotion made for a real pamper!

The Vineyard Hotel is a fantastic stay for kids! We loved exploring the garden; chasing squirrels, looking for the big tortoise, crossing little bridges and running on the large, rolling lawns. I really enjoyed the oasis of calm you experience walking through the gardens. One is so unaware of the hustle and bustle of daily life outside of the grounds. Magic! The staff were also fantastic with Harry, offering him rides on the luggage trolleys and helping us find the tortoise!

Meeting up with some girlfriends and enjoying some bubbly, at what I call “magic hour”, has been a past time I’ve enjoyed for years. Such a treat to be back! It really is my “GO-TO” for drinks in the Southern Suburbs.

The latest edition to The Vineyard Hotel, The Long Cafe, is a great spot for a coffee date or quick bite! The coffee is excellent! Do try The Vineyard Blend. Loved the very on-trend marble counter! Every instagramers dream 🙂

Hidden in the Vineyard’s Gardens, a trip to the Angsana Spa transported me right back to my travels round Bali. I had the most incredible massage (probably one of the best I’ve had!) along with a facial and mani! I felt super relaxed and rested post treatments and the uplifting ginger tea and pawpaw snack afterwards was a refreshing, finishing touch.

The Vineyard has loads of nooks & spaces to accommodate your every need, whether you like a more private corner or like to sit back and people watch. From quieter lounges to catch up on emails to soaking up some sun by the pool, exploring with kids to entertaining clients over a fabulous buffet or a la carte breakfast, or treating yourself to a little fine dining or grabbing that much needed coffee – whatever the occasion, The Vineyard has you covered.
