Perched on a hill with magnificent views of the valleys and hills around Yarra Glen lies beautiful Balgownie Estate. Originating in Bendigo in 1969, the owners fell for the lure of the Yarra Valley, and established vines and this special resort. A commitment to the environment has resulted in a number of impressive innovations, including rainwater harvesting, minimised irrigation, rammed earth construction and a long list of other eco initiatives.
Balgownie Estate has 69 spacious and sophisticated suites and rooms. Each one is elegantly appointed with soft furnishings, muted colours and subtle mood lighting. The renowned one-bedroom spa suites provide the ultimate indulgence, with a separate bedroom, king bed, and large spa bath, surrounded by glass, that looks through the lounge room and private balcony out to the stunning vista. Complete with a kitchenette, wine selection and room service, you could be forgiven for not venturing out.
But you would not want to miss the chance to taste their award-winning wines at cellar door or experience Rae's Restaurant. Dishes incorporate local produce and herbs from their garden, and the kitchen's chefs are passionate about highlighting the best of seasonal ingredients. The serene day spa also offers the very finest in treatments and there is an indoor pool, tennis and walking tracks. Unsurprisingly, Balgownie makes a popular wedding venue - just imagine the photography opportunities!
Just an hour from Melbourne's CBD, this is the perfect Yarra Valley escape, especially for those seeking romantic getaways - ask for the rose petals and tea lights.
