Whether you're planning a romantic getaway, girls weekend or solo escape to the countryside for an old-fashioned unwind, there's something magical about the relaxation that a good long soak in a bubbling bathtub offers.

We've done the hard yards to find 10 gorgeous stays with a spa bath or hot tub within an easy drive of Brisbane that you simply won't want to leave..

Rosebrook Cottages

Maleny

The closest cottages to hinterland fave Maleny, Rosebrook Cottages are set on 12 acres of gorgeous countryside. The four luxury cottages have a private spa with views of the Blackall Range, and offer breakfast provisions for you to cook up (after a sleep-in, of course), a large deck, and add-ons like massages, cheese platters and picnic packs, so all you have to do is rug up, chill out and enjoy.

Spicers Hidden Vale

Grandchester 

The winter months usually have us reaching for blankets and hoodies, but there's nothing like throwing an epic bath into the mix for the ultimate cosy indulgence. Luckily, lots of the charming accommodation options at Spicers Hidden Vale offer a huge spa bathtub, with the Luxury Suites even looking out to their own leafy atrium. Bliss.

 

The Falls Montville

Montville

Montville is the perfect place for a spa weekend where you can spend all your time unwinding, or venturing into the town to peruse the stores and have a bite to eat. For the perfect end-of-day relaxation, The Falls Montville offers up their stunning rainforest spa cottages, with a double spa and spa products, as well as a log fire, room service and fresh local produce for you to choose from. We suggest taking a week off, for self-care. 

Tree Tops Mountain Retreat

Ravensbourne

If you're looking for some peace and quiet, you won't be disappointed at Tree Tops at Ravensbourne Escape, right on the edge of the Great Dividing Range and national park, and near the cute town of Crows Nest. The one-bedroom, self-contained chalet features stunning views over the range, with an epic hot tub for melting away the stress of city life, log fireplace for staying cosy, and wifi (so you can stay connected... but not too connected).

 

O’Reilly’s Rainforest Retreat 

Lamington National Park

O’Reilly’s is a natural destination for rainforest getaways, but their signature stays also include gorgeous spa baths that overlook the rainforest, offering an immersive and relaxing experience that will whisk you away from stress. Pair your spa soaks with a few rainforest and waterfall strolls and you’ll be feeling at peace in no time. 

Highgrove Cottage

Mount Mee

Immerse yourself in a stunning green valley at this renovated countryside escape set on 46 acres. Separate from the gorgeous two-bedroom Highgrove Cottage (with indoor fireplaces AND a fire pit) you'll find the bathhouse, boasting a two-person bath and yet another wood-burning fireplace for the ultimate countryside romance. Light the fire, let the bath run, and pour a glass of something red before soaking up some peace and quiet.

Glass On Glasshouse Luxury Cottage

Glasshouse Mountains

Get back to nature at this adults-only retreat in the mystical Glasshouse Mountains. The stars are yours for the viewing at this romantic cottage, located on a 20-acre property where you’ll find all sorts of wildlife, native birds, and even a beautiful pond. Your private cabin oasis comes complete with a spacious deck and an epic freestanding spa from which you can gaze at the mountains beyond—thanks to the huge windows, you’ll feel like you’re right in the centre of nature without having to leave the comforting waters of that blissful hot tub.

Misty View Cottages

Montville

Exclusivity, privacy and luxury—what more could you want? Misty View Cottages, overlooking Lake Baroon in the gorgeous surrounds of Montville, have mastered the art of relaxation, so it’s no surprise there’s a spa in the mix. Spend your day in Montville or visiting local wineries, then unwind in the generous double spa and take in the mist as it rolls over the mountains. 

Mouses House

Springbrook National Park 

Mouses House Rainforest Retreat offers Gold Coast hinterland surrounds with all the comforts of an inner-city hotel, as well as indoor spas and outdoor hot tubs. Oh, you want more with your private chalet stay? Fireplaces, wifi (score) and the tranquil sounds of surrounding streams babbling by your door really seal the deal.

Pethers Rainforest Retreat

North Tamborine

With fireplaces, outdoor balconies and two-person spas all surrounded by gorgeous subtropical rainforest, the boutique accommodations at Pethers are sure to get your wanderlust brewing. Sure, they’re called private treehouses, but that doesn’t mean you’re not getting the full luxe treatment of a true mountain lodge getaway. You can even add on a "Relax and Dine" or "Wellbeing" package for the ultimate switch-off experience.
