Less than one hour from the Perth CBD a luxury retreat awaits that’s perfect for your next staycay.
Amaroo Retreat & Spa in the Helena Valley is everything our tired, weary souls need. Tucked into the stunning foothills of the Darling Scarp, the retreat offers a whole lot of seclusion among the flora and fauna of the Perth Hills bushland.
Set on 55 acres, the property boasts luxury king and queen chalets kitted out with all of the good stuff. Each offers tranquil views of trees, outdoor spa baths, luxurious bathrooms with double showers, free in-house movies and beautiful verandahs.
Then there’s the spa. It wouldn’t be a retreat without some hardcore relaxation, and you’ll get just that at Amaroo Spa. From hot stone and aromatherapy massages to facials and body exfoliation treatments, the therapists are pros at encouraging your mind to drift off to a world of bliss. And to keep your skin happy, they use only the best products from PAYOT.
The best way to enjoy Amaroo is by booking a package, which start at $550 and include a night in one of their luxury chalets, a bottle of prosecco on arrival, 60-minute couples massage or facial, and continental breakfast basket delivered to your room before you wake up to the sound of kookaburras. You can even opt for a BBQ to be delivered to your chalet so you can cook up your own dinner as you try to spot possums and kangaroos rustling up their own feasts from the forest floor.
Once you’re feeling suitably relaxed, there’s no shortage of things to do nearby. Head out to a winery in the Swan Valley, go on a hike in the nearby bushland or do some yoga on the verandah with the yoga mats provided.
And soon you won’t have a reason to leave because Amaroo is about to open an on-site restaurant and bar.
Time to put your life on pause and book a cosy escape in the hills? We think so.
