Is there anything better than escaping for a few days to a place of luxury, relaxation and indulgence? It’s hard to beat right? Well when I first laid eyes on this beautiful retreat and spa in the Margaret River Wine Region, Western Australia moved quickly up the ranks in my ‘must visit very soon’ list! I’m talking about EMPIRE Retreat.
Once the owner’s family home, this farmhouse features ten luxury suites and its own signature day spa. Each space has its own twist, from open fireplaces, private courtyards, and even a timber boardwalk connecting the main lodge to the ‘Loft Suite’.
The interior is best described as modern Australian, and it tastefully complements the 35 year old stone and timber structure. A beautiful soft palette of neutrals and blues feature throughout, with relaxed, patterned quilts on the beds, sheepskin rugs thrown over lounge suites for extra comfort, upholstered chairs and plush velvet cushions. Best of all, if you like what you see, you can purchase many of the pieces at the owner’s retail business – Empire Homewares – and recreate a slice of this sanctuary in your own space.
