Soapy sanctuaries

If you love a good soak and falling asleep dreaming of bubble-filled scented baths perched on mountain tops, in opulent bathrooms or peaceful forest surrounds, you'll love these one-of-a-kind stays.

Plot your next Victorian getaway around your ideal place to stay — pop open the Champagne and slip into a pool of toasty luxury in these cleansing baths and spas.

Liptrap Loft


If you'd rather character and seclusion over an urban hotel, head to Liptrap Loft in south Gippsland. The all-season coastal retreat is the perfect getaway for nature lovers, eco adventurers and weary workers who just want a break.

The one-bedroom, open-plan hideaway blends modern and Japanese-influenced architecture with recycled materials, and features a separate bathroom with a plunge bath. So soak your worries away while looking out over five-acres of farmland.

Nook on the Hill

Halls Gap

Nook on the hill, Grampians, Victoria

Recharge your soul with a soak in an outdoor tub surrounded by native gardens and a pretty impressive view. Set in the foothills of the Grampian ranges, Nook on the Hill is a sustainably built house that comes with everything from a comfy reading nook to a fire pit, and loft-style bedroom. And did we mention the outdoor bath with the spectacular view? Because wow. 

Acre of Roses


Roses are red, violets are blue, why have one bathtub, when you can have two? Choose from a freestanding indoor tub, or rainwater filled cedar hot tub at Acre of Roses

Situated just one hour from Melbourne, the bio-dynamic micro rose farm has two quaint cottages set amongst enchanting cottage gardens, and is near Trentham Falls, local galleries, indulgent day spas and cideries.

Five Acres

Phillip Island

Check into one of the three luxury cabins at Five Acres Phillip Island and leave your worries at the door. Boasting immaculate interiors and sweeping views of Western Port Bay, this chic coastal retreat in Ventnor is the ultimate stay if you're in need of some R&R.

Get cosy by the log fire with a good book or head out to the deck to make the most of the handcrafted freestanding tub. Soak in heavenly bubbles while admiring the tranquil farmland scenery, complete with a couple of gorgeous Highland cows.

Clifftop at Hepburn

Hepburn Springs

Clifftop at Hepburn Springs, DMR, Victoria

Clifftop at Hepburn – where do we start! The Precarious and Hideyoshi five-star villas are the epitome of luxury, boasting outdoor stone baths and spas in Japanese-style gardens, panoramic views, fireplaces, daybeds and even a massage chair.

The crown of Hepburn, these villas are the perfect place to relax in the evening after a hard day of spa treatments and dining at world-class restaurants in Daylesford and surrounds. 


Halls Gap

Ever wanted to sleep in a treehouse attic? Now’s your chance. DULC has three funky cabins in the Grampians – two single-storey mountain view cabins and one treehouse. All three of the self-contained rooms are architecturally designed with minimalist décor, abundant natural light and glass top bathrooms with large spa baths. 

Explore the Grampians National Park and get up close to local wildlife then retreat to your room for an in-room massage, rejuvenating spa and a glass of local wine by the gas log fire. 

Ross Farm


From working dairy farm to contemporary accommodation in a rural setting, the three accommodation options at Ross Farm have been designed with rawness in mind and built with local and handmade materials, where possible. 

While the modern minimalist design and beautiful setting are huge selling points, we’d argue the freestanding stone bath with floor to glass windows overlooking landscaped surrounds, is the real highlight of each of the luxe stays at Ross Farm. Although the wood fire pot belly comes in a close second.
