Property reviewed by Sarah Gamboni on Friday, May 5, 2017

Just an hour’s drive from Melbourne, Linden Gardens Rainforest Retreat in the Dandenong Ranges transports you to another world. The transformation begins as you journey past towering gums, lush tree ferns and quaint country towns, winding down the windows to soak up that crisp mountain air. By the time you’ve set down your luggage, you’ll be deep in getaway mode.

Linden Gardens’ four boutique retreats have been designed with pampering in mind. Each romantic suite boasts a king bed with luxury linen, huge sofas and gas log fireplaces. The Gallery Suite and Garden Retreat both feature spa baths in the lounge room; in Linden Cottage, it’s tucked into a corner of the bedroom; and in the Sanctuary Tower, the whole bottom floor has been converted into a private spa sanctuary, complete with sunken tub, infra-red shower and fireplace. To take full advantage of these sumptuous surrounds, book an in-suite massage or spa treatment.

Once you’re wrapped up in your bathrobe, the last thing you’ll feel like doing is whipping up breakfast. Thankfully, the Linden Gardens team is here to spoil you, serving a hot breakfast daily in the comfort of your room. You can also pre-order platters of cheese, dips and chocolate cake to be enjoyed on arrival, or make use of the neat kitchenettes, complete with fridge, sink and microwave.

If you can bear to step out of your robe, cosy eateries including Coonara Springs, Olinda Tea House, SkyHigh and Cuckoo Restaurant are just down the road, along with the National Rhododendron Gardens and Olinda Falls, guaranteed to leave you on a natural high.
