How many times have we wondered what would it feel like to enjoy perfect seclusion? Waking up to the sound of birds, watching the sun set by a serene lake, blissfully soaking in the Jacuzzi under the stars and many such experiences is what the Forest Rise Eco Retreat promises you. Tucked away in a vast expanse of lush bushland replete with wildlife, the award winning eco resort is located in the heart of the famed Margaret River wine region, Yelverton, Australia. Peace beckons right from the moment one steps in. Guests have the option to choose from the one bedroom luxury lakeside or forest Chalet, ideal for one or two persons or the larger Homestead which is ideal for a large family.
The award winning resort is set in the midst of a 240-acre private forest area and in its vicinity are wineries and a lake that have a rich and abundant bird life. Well laid out, spacious and comfortable rooms, elegant minimalist interiors, tasteful décor and an enchanting view of the clear star lit sky from the spa bathroom is what greets you at the luxurious retreat. Floor-to-ceiling front glass panels in the chalets charm with views of pristine bushland and fauna inviting you to enjoy a meal or simply gaze out and be one with nature. A well-stocked, fully functional kitchen appeals to the chef in you to rustle up a homely meal or a delicious exotic single dish. Relaxing after a delightful meal by the wood fired living area under a comforter while reading a book is a pleasure that can only be experienced to be truly savoured. And yes, the best way to wind up a peaceful day would be by sipping wine in the Jacuzzi under the star lit sky. Just close your eyes and soak in the serenity.
During your stay, treat the nature enthusiast in you to the sights and sounds of fauna amidst lush greenery while on one of the many nature or cycle trails. You could be almost certain to chance upon a kangaroo, possum and several species of birds while on the trail. One could also avail of a luxurious spa massage session in the comfort and privacy of your chalet to soothe tense muscles and rejuvenate the soul. In the evening, watch an ethereal sun set by the lakeside while enjoying a gourmet food hamper. For gourmands, an in-house chef can create and serve a personalised three-course gourmet meal in the chalet itself or enjoy a sizzling barbeque outdoors. Resort staff are extremely cordial and offer valuable suggestions on ways to add valuable memories to the holiday.
Be it a couples’ getaway, a soul searching retreat or a long deserved vacation, the resort ensures your stay to be a flawless experience to reconnect with the soul in perfect peace and tranquillity. While the chalets are cozy and intimate, the Homestead is more luxurious in its decor and feel. Either way, by the end of the break, feel completely refreshed, having experienced perfect divine seclusion. Forestrise.com.au
