These are hotels we hope to visit in the near future. Stay tuned for a review!
The Red Book recommends:
- Pretty Beach House (Bouddi Peninsula). It doesn't get much more exclusive than this. Only three suites, private plunge pools, superb old trees, stunning views and all meals, beverages and bush walks provided.
- Saffire (Great Oyster Bay, Freycinet). 20 rooms in stunning surroundings overlooking Great Oyster Bay, a focus on fine food and an excellent spa make this a must on any stressed out hedonist's itinerary. (Source: Financial Review Life & Leisure - Winter 2010)
- Wolgan Valley Resort (2600 Wolgan Road, Wolgan Valley). A surprisingly understated resort from the Emirates group who brought us the Burj al Arab in Dubai. Muted tones, a stunning location, a focus on outdoor activites and conservation combined with a great spa and restaurant. A retreat for active travellers.

- Waterhouse Retreat (Victor Harbor). A luxury getaway in the hinterlands of Victor Harbor (source: Condé Nast Traveller)
- No 11 London (London). A ‘butler-style’ hotel in London. A boutique hotel where you rang the doorbell and were met by a butler. They had some very sumptuous rooms, but I preferred their ‘attic room’ whenever I was in London by myself. It was just a stylish, but welcoming hotel. Source: EM.
- Ashford Castle (Cong, County Mayo). A proper castle complete with turrets and moat with superb trout fishing on the nearby Lough Comb. (Source: Financial Review Life & Leisure Winter 2010)
- The Juvet Landscape Hotel. Rooms almost embedded in nature and a host of adventure tourism options.
- The Dolder Grand. Great for a luxurious romantic getaway in one of the "Top Suites". Be sure to check out the "amazing" spa.
