The Indulgence Weekend packages include a special dinner in our event house, dining privately with a maximum of 3 other couples cooked by our multi award winning chef and cookbook author Eloise Emmett.
We have four self-contained spa chalets. The four are all slightly different, 3 have sunken floors into the living area and one has a flat floor (please request unit 3 in your booking if you require a flat floor, subject to availability). The chalets are all self-contained with full kitchens and laundrys. We have a large Event House that sleeps 6 in a loft Bunkhouse style room, when not in use for an Indulgence Weekend or Cooking retreat this building can also be booked for overnight stays for groups or families.

A recent review from Trip Advisor:
What an amazing weekend getaway! We arrived Friday afternoon to our beautiful unit. Great king size bed and the luxury of a spa! What a joy to find a bottle of Tasmanian sparkling ros’e waiting for us along with homemade salmon rilletes, pat’e and apple paste, with crackers and cheese. A beautiful fish pie in our fridge to reheat at our leisure for supper. Breakfast provisions were also provided with gorgeous homemade bread and jams. We spent a day exploring the area, so much to see and do. A light lunch at the Lavender Farm at Port Arthur sufficed as we knew we had a 7 course degustation with matched wines coming our way for dinner. The care and thoughtfulness that went in to this meal was shown on the plate…every one a stand out! Served with the best Tasmanian wines and produce… what a credit to our state and to Eloise for showcasing the amazing things we have to offer. Breakfast was again catered with homemade croissants, fresh scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, homemade jams, juices, tea and coffee and so much more. For a foodie, or anyone just wanting a wonderful experience, this is the place to go. We can’t wait to return. We returned home relaxed and satisfied that we’d had one of the best weekends away Tasmania has to offer.
