Hold tight romantics, we have big news. A cosy, hidden rainforest retreat that’s just 90 minutes from Brisbane, and less from the Sunshine Coast, has just been named the most romantic hotel in the world by Tripadvisor, so we reckon it’s time to grab your significant other (or your bestie) and head off for some quality time in charming Montville.
Nestled in the lush surrounds of the Sunshine Coast hinterland, Narrows Escape has long been one of our favourite spots for a weekend getaway, so we can see why it took out the top spot. With only six cabins hidden among the trees, here it’s all about getting back to nature, and enjoying some alone time with your plus one. Each villa comes with all the essentials, including a fireplace, double spa bath, kitchenette and hammock on the balcony overlooking the rainforest—so keep your eyes peeled for wildlife.
They have plenty of packages on offer for everything from newlyweds (fine dining, massages and fresh local produce anyone?) and babymooners to girl’s getaways and even proposals (tag you squeeze if they need a hint). But who really needs an excuse for a luxurious escape? We say book the villa anyway, life's short.
If you want to stay nestled in the warm wooden villa we totally get that. But on the off chance you want to venture out and leave the humble abode for a couple of hours, here’s a list of things you can do while in the beautiful hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. From waterfalls to vineyards, there is plenty to explore in between relaxation sessions. You can book your romantic getaway at Narrows Escape here.
